Breitling Aviator 8 Automatic Swiss Limited Editions

Zurich, November 29, 2018 – Breitling has announced the release of two limited-edition watches to celebrate its partnership with Swiss International Air Lines. Since 2016, Breitling has been the official onboard timekeeper for the airline, with a presence on every SWISS flight.

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. The 41-millimeter chronometer features an eye-catching black dial, while its modern-retro appearance is enhanced by a brown leather strap.
The hour and minute hands, as well as the Arabic numerals on the dial, bear a special Super-LumiNova® coating that emits a light reminiscent of the luminescent material on earlier watches, lending the Navitimer Aviator 8 Automatic SWISS Limited Edition an additional touch of vintage style.
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 1000 pieces.
