Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk Watch Collection Review

Breitling have been a leader in the field of pilot watches for the best part of a century and to prove the world of aviation is still a crucial part of their DNA, they have revealed a fantastic new collection of Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk watches. With three models in total, each Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk watch has been designed to commemorate the maker of the iconic P-40 Warhawk aeroplane.

Curtiss Warhawk was a renowned American aircraft manufacturer who became the largest supplier of aircrafts in the United States by the end of World War II, supplying planes in large numbers to the U.S Armed Forces. Their most famous plane was the bold-looking P-40 Warhawk, a single-engined, single seated, ground attack aircraft manufactured between 1938 to 1944.

The Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk collection honours this very plane with two chronograph models – one featuring the brand’s famous B01 Manufacture movement – and a classic three hand model. Each Curtiss P-40 Warhawk watch is available to order today with delivery expected towards the end of March/beginning of April.
