Breitling's limited-edition Avenger Hurricane Military screams of the resilience demanded by the armed forces. The watch features an imposing case made of Breitlight — a proprietary material Breitling claims is lighter yet stronger than steel and titanium. Water resistant to 330 feet, the watch also offers lateral protection, scratch resistance, oversize buttons and a nonslip grip that makes it easy to handle even with gloves. Adding to the military feel is the 24-hour display.
