Breitling Super Avenger 01 Boutique Edition: Malaysia Price and Review

Breitling powers up its latest Avenger.

Breitling Super Avenger 01 Boutique Edition

Debuting in 2004 – and subsequently rebooted in 2013 - the Breitling Super Avenger collection has always exemplified the brand's masculine qualities with a touch of class. This year, for the first time ever, the collection welcomes an exclusive boutique edition that is limited to 100 pieces and available only in Breitling’s 60 stores worldwide.

This special edition’s top draw lies in its ‘01’ suffix. The number refers to the Breitling 01 Calibre in-house automatic movement, which features for the first time here in the Avenger line. Launched in 2013, the Breitling 01 Calibre was the brand’s first proprietary movement. This performance-packed engine is COSC-certified, with the ability to measure time up to 1/4th of a second, and offers up to 70 hours of power reserve.

Although the movement is decently finished and quite a joy to look at, it is a pity that it is all hidden underneath a solid caseback. However, Breitling makes up for this with a nod to the watch's limited edition stature, by inscribing the caseback with a vintage-looking pin-up logo with the words ‘Special delivery’ engraved in red.

At 48mm, the Breitling Super Avenger 01 Boutique Edition is one of the largest Breitlings you can get. Size aside, the watch’s black dial is equally eye-catching, accented by red highlights on the 30-minute counter at three o’clock and an ‘Edition Limitee’ inscription above the 12-hour counter. The neat chronograph lay-out is complemented by the thick luminescent baton hands and indexes that ensure readability in the dark.

As hardy as Breitling watches come, this Avenger boasts a screw-locked crown with grooves for a tactile grip. Elsewhere, the pushers are set in crenellated housings to guard them against accidental knocks. The steel case is also water-tight, ensuring water resistance to 300m.

Interestingly, the Breitling Super Avenger 01 Boutique Edition’s macho demeanour is imbued with a touch of luxury. There is an almost dressy quality to the watch, thanks to the combination of polished and brushed finishing on the case and bracelet, contrasted against the sexy black dial. While hardly a black-tie accompaniment, this ticker sure exudes rugged elegance that makes it stand out from the crowd.
