Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk Watches (A133161A1L1X2, A133161A1L1A1, AB01192A1L1A1, AB01192A1L1X1, AB01192A1L1X2, M173152A1L1X1, A133161A1L1X1)

Proving that aviation is still a crucial part of their DNA, Breitling have released an exceptional new collection to commemorate the maker of the iconic P-40 Warhawk aeroplane. The Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk watches pay tribute to Curtiss Warhawk, a renowned American aircraft manufacturer who became the largest supplier of aircrafts in the United States during World War II by supplying planes in large numbers to the U.S Armed Forces. Their most famous plane was the bold-looking P-40 Warhawk, the very plane that has inspired this Breitling Aviator 8 watch.

There are three key variations within the Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk collection: a three-hand model, B01 Manufacture chronograph and Breitling 13 chronograph. Each model beautifully celebrates the aircraft it honours with accents of red found on the bezel markers and tips of the seconds hands to reflect the paint used on the nose of the P-40 Warhawk plane. The military green dial also tributes the main colour of the aircraft while also providing the perfect backdrop to bold Arabic numerals and propeller shaped hour and minute hands coated in Superluminova.

Breitling Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition Watch (AB0910371B1X1)

The gorgeous Breitling Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition watch has been unvieled to celebrate an early 1959 model from the iconic Breitling Navitimer collection that was released exactly 60 years ago. The design of the re-edition is almost exact to the original with an all-black dial, beaded bezel and hand-wound movement. The dial is also adorned with a Breitling inscription in capital letters and an unsigned winged logo. Only serious watch fanatics will remember that the Breitling unsigned winged logo was used for the European market only, while the watches sold in the US had an AOPA-signed logo.

Just how the original model boasted a manual winding movement, the new Breitling Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition is equipped with a hand-wound calibre, the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09 mechanical movement to be exact. The B09 is based on the brand’s in-house Caliber 01 and remains COSC certified. There will be a limited number of 1959 pieces of the Breitling Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition watch available to order.
