    Question Breitling Chrono Avenger M1 Titanium

    Did the Breitling Chrono Avenger M1 Titanium ever use the E13360 mechanical movement in earlier years?

    To my knowledge, the M1 only ever used the SQ movement. The B13 was used in the Chrono Avenger.

    Re: Breitling Chrono Avenger M1 Titanium

    Thanks for all the input. I posed this question to the seller:

    The Breitling Source lists the reference # for the M1 as e73360 which is a battery operated quartz movement. The e13360 is a mechanical movement. Is this watch the e13360? What is the approximate year of manufacture? Is there any documentation regarding the source/background of this watch?


    and the seller responded as follows:

    This is the original M1 that Breitling produced before changing over to the Super Quartz movement. It is in fact an E13360 mechanical movement. The watch was purchased approximately 5 years ago (2004) brand new from a Breitling Dealer at the Oshkosh Air Venture Air Show. Since I have a variety of fine timepieces, I just never got around to wearing it and it's sat in my vault since purchase.

    I don't want to unjustly fault the seller in his description since I do not consider myself an expert in this matter. The Breitling Source, however, makes no mention of an M1 with a mechanical movement.

    Please advise.

    The regular Chrono Avenger is mechanical. The M1 is quartz. Just look at the picture of the watch to see which one it is. If it has a 6, 9, 12 subdial layout, its a mechanical CA. A 2, 6, 10 subdial layout and its a quartz M1.
