To celebrate its partnership with Swiss International Air Lines, Breitling has introduced two exclusive timepieces: the Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 SWISS Limited Edition and the Navitimer Aviator 8 Automatic SWISS Limited Edition. Georges Kern, Breitling’s CEO, explains that the partnership is built around the companies’ Swiss roots and shared heritage.
The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 SWISS Limited Edition
The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 SWISS Limited Edition is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 which delivers an impressive power reserve of more than 70 hours. The central chronograph second hand features an aircraft- shaped base, which, along with the distinctive transparent sapphire caseback featuring a GE90 turbine engine design, is a reminder of Breitling’s special partnership with Swiss International Air Lines. The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 SWISS Limited Edition is a COSC-certified chronometer and is being produced in a series limited to 777 pieces – a number that pays homage to the Boeing 777 airliners operated by SWISS.
The Navitimer Aviator 8 Automatic 41 SWISS Limited Edition
The Navitimer Aviator 8 Automatic SWISS Limited Edition makes a real style statement. Special features, including the jetliner base on its sweep-second hand and the caseback engraved with an image of a powerful turbine engine, serve to highlight its link to Swiss International Air Lines. Inside its robust stainless-steel case is the Breitling Caliber 17, which, with its bidirectional rotor winder, delivers more than 40 hours of power reserve. This stunning but understated timepiece, like all of Breitling’s watches, is a COSC-certified chronometer. It has been produced in a series limited to 1,000 pieces.
