LIGHT BREIT

With its al­most ob­ses­sive fo­cus on in­ter­nal mech­a­nisms, the watch world can be a whis­per-quiet place, where el­e­gant re­fine­ment rules supreme. While the stealth ap­proach has its at­trac­tions, some­times you need a bold time­piece that won’t set­tle for silent ap­pre­ci­a­tion. For­tu­nately, among the rar­efied Swiss brands, Bre­itling is not afraid to make some noise. Even Bre­itling’s name for the watch, ‘Avenger Hur­ri­cane’, comes across like a su­per­hero movie. We’re guess­ing the as­so­ci­a­tion is de­lib­er­ate – the high­im­pact 50mm case is con­structed from the type of ma­te­rial Tony Stark would dream up. Much harder, yet 5.8 times lighter than steel, the ma­te­rial is called ‘Bre­it­light’, re­sists scratches and cor­ro­sion, and is anti-mag­netic and 100m wa­ter-re­sis­tant – all that’s re­ally miss­ing is a cape and a maudlin back­story.
