So I heard recently that the Avenger line would be the next to get a face lift, sometime in Sept. or Oct. Anyone else heard anything?

I am in the midst of revamping my collection, selling most everything except for a couple micro brands to get me by until the rest of my plans play out. So far two pieces on order, Omega and a Breitling but will need to let a couple more go before I start buying again. This led me to the Avenger question since I like the line but most have been a little too large for me. Hopefully some slimmer cases coming but we'll see.

So Avengers next? Then Chronomats early next year?

I have no actual knowledge, but I think the Avenger or Chronomat next would make sense (assuming the Avenger line even remains of course!).

Interesting (partial) statement, don't sell yourself so short D8, :) .
Thanks for comment, hope they keep the Avenger line.

@WatchFred alluded to a refresh of the chronomat line in Q3 of this year. I can’t remember which thread it was, but I’ve been checking regularly for a brushed steel BoB sapphire caseback that I won’t be able to resist. Tell me it’s coming Fred...

can only say that there is no logical reason for these two very important lines to disappear?

may take a bit longer than originally hoped for some of the models, but would expect some releases this year ;)

:shock:

Never used one of the emojis on here but I think asking for a thicker Avenger deserves that.

Sorry Alol, but I've got to agree with Justin and Fred on this one - I don't think it should suddenly become all small and refined, but bigger (and especially thicker) is not what the Avenger line needs IMHO.

Yikes, thicker?! Definite no to that for me, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what's next for these lines though.

Just curious, what are your thoughts on Invicta?

Never really looked at any other Brands TBH. I think if I had the money I would look at maybe a Panerai or AP.
