Breitling introduces Super Avenger Military Chronograph — An Elite Force on the Wrist

Breitling, Global Giants

Breitling, Global Giants

A concentrated blend of power, precision and functionality, the new Super Avenger Military chronograph by Breitling certainly lives up to its name. Its rugged steel case, water-resistant to 300 meters (1,000 ft), features an ultra-resistant carbon-based black coating. The result is a non-reflective stealth look clearly geared up for the most extreme missions. The equally black dial provides a 24-hour “military time” display to avoid any potential confusion in the heat of action. The strap is made of a durable and comfortable synthetic fabric such as those adopted for their operations by the elite armed forces. A true instrument for professionals, it is equipped with a self-winding movement chronometer certified by Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute - the highest official benchmark in terms of precision and reliability, as well as the only one based on an international norm. Super Avenger Military: an elite force on the wrist.

The 193 Member States of the United Nations reached agreement today on the outcome document that will constitute the new sustainable development agenda that will be adopted this September by world leaders at the Sustainable Development Summit in New York.

Concluding a negotiating process that has spanned more than two years and has featured the unprecedented participation of civil society, countries agreed to an ambitious agenda that features 17 new sustainable development goals that aim to end poverty, promote prosperity and people’s well-being while protecting the environment by 2030.

More than 150 world leaders are expected to attend the Sustainable Development Summit at the UN headquarters in New York between 25 to 27 September to formally adopt the outcome document of the new sustainable agenda.

The preamble of the 29-page text, “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” states, “We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet.” It continues, “We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.”

The Otturatore from de Grisogono is their most impressive recent watch for men. It is a watch that cannot be fully understood or appreciated unless you actually get to play with one. The Otturatore is as strange as its name sounds, yet somehow it ends up being remarkably desirable.

The Otturatore’s basic feature is a mobile clockwise-rotated dial operated simply by pressing a mechanical pushpiece. Along with the hour and minute hands at the center, the Otturatore displays on demand the seconds, the date, the phases of the moon, and the movement’s power reserve. Its greatest originality lies in the selective display of each of these separate indications that can be switched from one to another at a speed 18 times faster than the blink of an eye!
