Breitling Chrono Avenger

Haven't been writing in this blog for ages.... just too much thing to do lately... Anyhow introducing my very first Breitling... I always think Breitling watches are big, bulky, heavy... and you can use it as a brick to throw at your enemy.... an expensive brick indeed!

One afternoon my watchmaker friend emailed and offered this watch to me... After browsing through the net and found that in the movie Blood Diamond, Leonardo DiCarpio wears the same watch, the breitling E13360 Chrono Avenger.

 This watch is made of Grade 2 Titanium with 44mm case. It is much lighter than those stainless steel counterparts. The Chrono Avenger has a black dial that sometime looks blue due to the reflection of the anti-reflective coating of the dome curved sapphire glass. Breitling is re-known as a pilot's watch or instrument so the glass enables easy reading of time at any angle.

The Chrono Avenger is from the Aeromarine series and as such has a water resistance rating of 300meters. This mean you can scuba diving with this watch. This watch is powered by Breitling B13 movement which is based on the famous ETA 7750 chronograph movement. B13 is running at 28,800 vph and has 25 jewels and with a power reserve of minimum 42 hours. This movement is certified by COSC as chronometer. 
The watch comes with boxes and papers... and it has titanium bracelet with all the spare links... This is an adventurous rugged watch for outdoor activities.
