Breitling has announced the release of a Limited Edition Avenger model in partnership with UAE aerobatics demonstration team Fursan Al Emarat (Al Fursan).
The Avenger Chronograph 43 Fursan Al Emarat Limited Edition, was unveiled at the 2019 Dubai Airshow, of which Breitling is the Official Timing Sponsor.
The model, which proudly displays the Fursan Al Emarat logo on the dial, is produced in a series of 250 pieces and will be available across the Middle East in early 2020.
The Avenger Chronograph 43 Fursan Al Emarat Limited Edition is a classic pilot’s watch which has a 43mm stainless steel case with a unidirectional ratcheted bezel.
The Fursan Al Emarat logo is showcased on a black dial and presented on a stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp.
Powered by a selfwinding Breitling Caliber 13 mechanical chronograph movement, the watch has a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. Its hands and indexes are coated with SuperLumiNova®, a luminescent material that offers optimal legibility in all lighting conditions.
Its subdials are located in the 12 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock positions and there is a date window at 3 o’clock. The COSC certified chronometer is water resistant to 30 bar/300 meters.
Speaking at the launch of the Limited Edition model, Aed Adwan, Managing Director of Breitling MEIA, said: ”Like the Navitimer and Aviator 8 collections, the Avenger has its own personality.
“It was created as a reliable companion for aerial adventurers who want to achieve something outstanding and unexpected.
“Breitling has developed and produced special edition models to celebrate the leading acrobatic teams across the world. We are proud to include Fursan Al Emarat in this elite line up, to honour the continued relationship between Breitling and Fursan Al Emarat and to mark the team’s global success.”
Fursan Al Emarat leader, Nasser Al Obaidli, added: ”Breitling and Fursan Al Emarat make ideal partners, both enjoying a shared passion for aviation and precision. The Fursan Al Emarat team has been wearing the latest models from Breitling since 2011. We are proud to take to the skies wearing the aviation inspired Avenger Chronograph 43, completed with the Fursan Al Emarat logo.”
Breitling recently introduced the redesigned Avenger collection to the Middle East market – a collection as bold and robust as its name suggests.
It joins two other collections – the Aviator 8 and the iconic Navitimer – in Breitling’s Air universe and marks an evolution of the brand’s pilot watches, once again confirming its status as the world’s leading manufacturer of aviation-related watches. The Avenger originally debuted in 2001 and with the relaunch, Breitling has updated the collection and positioned it in a proud and unique place in its Air brand universe.
Since 1884, Breitling has established a global reputation for high precision timepieces, its pioneering role in the development of the wrist chronograph, and its uncompromising commitment to design excellence. With the brand’s storied association with aviation, Breitling has shared the finest moments in humankind’s conquest of the skies.
Renowned for its spirit of innovation, it has also earned a place of privilege in the worlds of science, sport, and technology.
Breitling manufactures its own movements in-house and the quality of every watch is confirmed by its status as a COSCcertified chronometer, made in Switzerland.
The Avenger Chronograph 43 Fursan Al Emarat Limited Edition will be showcased at the Breitling chalet at Dubai Airshow from the 17th to the 21st of November, at Al Maktoum International Airport.
