Breitling Avenger GMT 43 ref. A32397101A1A1 – Polished per OEM specs

Breitling SA was founded in 1884 by Léon Breitling – a passionate and innovative watchmaker known for his sharp business sense. In 1915 – barely a year after he had passed – his son, Gaston, proved he had inherited his father’s pioneering spirit by introducing one of the first-ever wrist chronographs with a separate push-piece above the crown. The brand’s innovations continued well into the following decades, and in 1952 – with Willy Breitling in the driver’s (or rather pilot’s) seat – the Navitimer made its debut. The model proved extremely popular among pilots and aircraft manufacturers and would later come to signify the beginning of Breitling’s avionic legacy.

The watch on offer here – the Avenger GMT – is one of the many modern faces of that same legacy. As such, it incorporates some of the brand’s most characteristic design flourishes and technical features.
The 43 mm case, for example, is covered in the traditional blend of brushed and polished surfaces, and it is topped by the unmistakable uni-directional bezel. Thanks to the latter’s rugged design and the special grip pattern on the crown, the Avenger Automatic GMT 43 can be easily operated while wearing gloves, which is a major point of pride for the brand. After all, military pilots don’t tend to operate their crafts bare-handed.
The pristine white dial, however, is where this piece truly stands out – it features an additional red hand indicating a second time zone and is adorned with applied indices and broad sword hands. In yet another instance of adherence to tradition, the dial’s symmetry is tastefully disrupted by a date display at – you guessed it – 3 o’clock.
Inside, protected by the solid screw-in caseback, the Breitling Caliber 13 is ticking resolutely away.

Our offering is in superb condition – just polished per OEM specs, but – regrettably – comes without any boxes or papers. It is outfitted with its OEM bracelet, which mirrors the finishing of the case. Ticking per specs.

Covered by a limited warranty of 1 year, starting on the date of purchase.

All our watches undergo a thorough inspection and are sold in fully-authentic condition. Naturally, this includes all external and internal components. They are also serviced where needed and tested for waterproofness where it applies.

Vintage watches are checked against our database of original examples to ensure no components have been replaced or tampered with over the years, and they are serviced using strictly OEM parts. It’s no secret that most vintage watches sold online are re-dialed, overpolished, or feature movement parts with questionable origins, and those are all practices we sincerely abhor.

You can rest assured that any exceptions to the above will be disclosed in the respective timepiece’s descriptive text.

ChronoTimepieces’s service including, without limitation, our website, all information, content and any features made available to you through our Site are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Our directors, employees, agents, partners and content providers do not warrant that the service will be secure or available at any particular time or location.
Unless agreed otherwise in an individual case, ChronoTimepieces does not give any guarantees as to the characteristics of the goods which go beyond the statutory warranty rights or any other warranties.

  • All our watches come with a limited warranty of 1 year, starting on the date of purchase. The cover of said warranty is limited to the function, continuous operation and fair timekeeping and it does not cover misuse, neglect, abuse, water damage or any other form of wearer-inflicted damage.
  • Some used watches might still be covered by leftover Manufacturer warranty valid to any AD (Authorized Dealer) – please check the specific description of the watch you are buying.
  • Some new watches might be covered by Manufacturer warranty, usually activated upon purchase and valid to any AD (Authorized Dealer) – please check the specific description of the watch you are buying.
  • For vintage watches (we consider any watch older than 20 years vintage) time keeping is guaranteed within reasonable limits – ±20 sec/day, unless explicitly stated otherwise in the item’s description.

Please ensure all the information is correct when providing your shipping details during checkout. We may have to contact you if there is any missing information or incorrect data. Delays may also occur due to pending payment verifications or customs clearance.

Each item sold by ChronoTimepieces is covered by a no-questions-asked 14 day inspection period, unless otherwise stated in the description of the purchased item. The item, however, must remain unworn and unmolested within that period of time – and in the same condition that it left our offices.

In the case of deterioration of the purchased items, attributable to handling the goods in a manner which goes beyond testing their qualities and functioning, you owe a compensation to ChronoTimepieces. “Testing their qualities and functioning” shall be understood to mean testing and trying out the purchased items in a manner which is possible and usual, for example, in a physical store.
