The Breitling name is a watch brand synonymous with supreme style without sacrificing functionality. Each Breitling Aeromarine Avenger Model A1338012/C794 is rugged enough to handle depths of 300 meters, and stylish enough to grace the wrist of any professional. Each model additionally pays special tribute to a branch of our Armed Forces by presenting a dial in Air Force Blue.
This timepiece has the same excellent qualities as other Breitling models, including the sapphire crystal window to the dial. Breitling pays special attention to small details that end up making a huge impact on the form of the watch. This includes stenciled minutes on the exterior edges, stenciled steel numbers on the dial, and solid steel screws to hold it all together. The face of the dial being in Air Force Blue causes the hours to stand out in stark relief, making for extremely easy reading on the fly. Really, one can hardly go wrong with Breitling engineering.
Not everyone is able to access this timepiece, however. With a price tag of around $5,000, this watch is more of an investment in quality than an accessory purchase. Though it is certainly very striking, this watch is not for everyone. The weight is a concern to some. About equal to the weight of an iPhone, this is a watch that you will be very aware of on your wrist at all times. For some, uncomfortably so.
At the end of the day,this is a watch that is most definitely worth the price. Though the cost is intimidating to some, with your purchase of the Breitling Aeromarine Avenger Model A1338012/C794, you are not simply buying an everyday watch, though this watch can certainly hold up under the most strenuous of everyday usage. You are also investing in an item that reflects the very best in quality and style. In keeping with the Breitling code, this timepiece is the epitome of sturdiness, precision, functionality and aesthetic sophistication. This means that it will stand the test of time not only in terms of functioning, but also in terms of retaining value. It is a truly worthwhile product for the price.
