  • THE STORY
  • Bold, extremely robust and shock resistant, the Avenger Chronograph 45 Night Mission combines precision with a powerful design in a lightweight case. As a true Breitling Avenger, it can be used wearing gloves and offers unrivalled safety and reliability to any airborne adventurer. The Night Mission interpretation of the Avenger Chronograph 45 features a sturdy 45mm DLC-coated titanium case, black or khaki dial and a matching black or khaki military leather strap that fits either a DLC-coated stainless-steel pin buckle or folding clasp. Its specific Arabic numerals recall the stenciled numbers used on the decks of aircraft carriers. Thanks to its rugged bezel and its special grip-pattern on the crown & chronograph pushers, the Avenger Chronograph 45 Night Mission can be easily operated wearing gloves.
Back in the 1950s, the original Co-Pilot Ref. 765 AVI starred next to another Breitling icon: the Navitimer. With its bold design, engraved rotating bezel and extra legible dial the 765 AVI instantaneously became the perfect companion to the Navitimer as the rugged and reliable pilots’ watch.
Today, the AVI 1953 Edition offers a luxury twist on the original design of the Co-Pilot Ref. 765 AVI from 1953.
The all-blue dial, protected by a highly-domed Hesalite crystal, has the same Arabic numerals than the original Co-Pilot, with tone-on-tone small second, 15-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters. The hand-applied Super-LumiNova color has been carefully chosen to recall the original luminescent material and gives the AVI 1953 Edition an additional touch of vintage allure. The AVI 1953 Edition features a 41mm platinum case with a water resistance up to 3 bar (30 meters).
The AVI 1953 Edition is powered by the in-house Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09, a hand-wound COSC-certified caliber based on the renowned Breitling Caliber 01. It is available on a gold vintage-inspired leather strap with an 18k white gold pin buckle as a limited-edition of 153 pieces, each of which is engraved “ONE OF 153”.
