Breitling has redesigned the Avenger. The new collection represents nothing less than the transition of one of Breitling’s boldest collections into the era of modern aviation

The Avenger collection was created as a reliable companion for aerial adventurers who want to achieve something outstanding and unexpected. 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.

The Avenger has clearly staked out its own territory at Breitling. It introduces the modern performance-­inspired pilot’s watch with pure Breitling DNA to the next generation of men and women of action, purpose, and style. For the launch of the new Avenger collection, Breitling has assembled a new Aviation Pioneers Squad as part of its #squadonamission campaign, made up of three remarkable individuals who represent different airborne disciplines but all define an incredible new age of adventure in the air: Scott Kelly, Rocío González Torres, and Luke Bannister.  Scott Kelly spent a year of his life looking down at the Earth from the International Space Station (ISS). Commandant Rocío González Torres has logged more than 1000 hours of flight time in a fighter jet and is proud to be a role model for girls and young women determined to conquer the skies. Finally, Luke Bannister excels in a whole new aviation discipline; he won his first World Drone Championship at the age of 15, and has been on a winning course ever since.
