Breitling Avenger Hurricane 50 (XB0170E41I1S1): hands-on review.
Today, as part of The Watch Source second-hand website, we also own the Breitling Avenger Hurricane 50. Breitling itself described Avengers Hurricane 50 as "beyond the highest level." We will test their bold claims to see how good the Avenger Hurricane 50 is! Breitling Avenger Hurricane XB0180E4|BF31|284S|X20D.4
It is no secret that Breitling is an aviation-centric brand. Since its conception by Leon Breitling in 1882, with the development of the aviation industry, the brand has begun to produce pocket watches for civilian and military use, a development that has entered the 20th century. The Avenger Hurricane 50 is not the exception to the brand's aviation tradition, and is deeply rooted in the core spirit of the brand's features, legibility and reliability. Named after the undisputed British wartime fighter Hurricane Hawke. The hurricane is the historical significance of the highest-scoring fighter in the Battle of Britain, which means that the air links of its Breitling aircraft of the same name are unquestionable.
What struck me was the weight of this watch. The belt weighs only 107 grams! In comparison, this is 62 grams lighter than a standard Breitling Colt. This is even more surprising when comparing the weight of this Luxury replica watches to its weight. The dimensions are impressive, 50 mm wide and 16.97 mm high. This is partly due to Breitling's trademark polymer case material "Breitlight®". Breitling claims that "Breitlight®" is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times stronger than steel.
Breitling also claims that this plastic composite shell "has excellent scratch, tensile and corrosion resistance; antimagnetic, antiallergic properties; and a" tactile "and slightly mottled effect that is warmer than metal, highlighting It's originality. "That's true, because the second thing that struck me after getting in touch with Avenger Hurricane 50. The gray stripes are mixed with the matte black of the case, similar to fake carbon.
The one-way bezel is made of the same material, following the bold and sturdy look of the case. The bezel is engraved with deep numbers and minute marks. It is used in combination with the raised clock mark and 12 O. Adds a realistic depth clock border point, in contrast to the black case. The bezel moves smoothly, and only a reasonable amount of effort is required to ensure that it does not accidentally adjust when moving, and does not require excessive force to adjust.

The most striking aspect of this watch is the dial, which has a bright yellow dial color scheme that perfectly matches the dark matte case.
In addition, when combined with military-style yellow accents, the canvas and rubber hybrid strap blends perfectly with dark and light colors. The photos tell everything, and the text rarely tells how much the yellow dial really popped up in case work. Nonetheless, it does not exhaust the small details of the dial, and the numbers in its military-style text are obscured by dark orange shadows, making the dial deeper, especially if the numbers are slightly raised due to the color .
The minute trajectory of the dial and the chronograph dial is almost entirely composed of black text, which has been re-decorated to outline the hour mark and Breitling brand full of time. Breitling's winged "B" is made of polished stainless steel, highlighting the famous logo under appropriate lighting conditions. Both hands are sandblasted to maintain military style and functionality and avoid excessive glare for the pilot.Richard Mille RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon replica
This explains the anti-glare coating on the frosted black surface of the "Breitlight®" case and the sapphire crystal glass on both sides, which emits a very attractive blue when reflecting light. The minute track is standard on Breitling, clear and undisturbed. However, things got even more interesting during the dial replay, and it was equipped with a "1 / 100th H dial," which had a mark on the dial replay that divided the hour into 100 minutes. (Note: I have to delve into Breitling's instructions!) For example 36 minutes is 0.6 for one hour.
This feature makes it easier to read decimal-based minute scales. The dial also has a red accent, marked with the sine reminder of the chronograph seconds hand, and divides the total of the chronograph minutes into 5-minute intervals. The layout of the Tri-compax chronograph gives the dial an even and pleasing aesthetic, with the date hole at 4:30.Greubel Forsey Watches replica
