Breitling takes to the sky with its new vintage-style aviation collection.
For Breitling, its collections of luxury watches are based on the earliest forms of wristwatch tools for the aviation field. As a large reason for the success of the company, Breitling continues to incorporate its historic past when creating modern examples for the community of dedicated watch collectors and enthusiasts.
Breitling is proud to announce the release of its new Super AVI Collection, a series of traditionally styled timepieces that embody the past while embracing modern-day movement technology. The series of watches pay homage to some of the world’s most well-known vintage aviation platforms, including the P-51 Mustang, Vought F4U Corsair, Curtis P-40 Warhawk, and de Havilland Mosquito.
Super AVI P-51 Mustang
The Super AVI P-51 Mustang pays homage to the best all-around fighter plane of its era in two distinct versions: a stainless-steel case with a black dial and gold-brown leather strap, and an 18 k red gold version with an anthracite dial and a black leather strap exclusive to Breitling boutiques and online.
Super AVI Tribute to Vought F4U Corsair
The Super AVI Tribute to Vought F4U Corsair features a blue dial, tone-on-tone chronograph counters, and a black leather strap that take their design cues from the characteristic livery of the record-breaking naval aircraft.
Super AVI Curtiss Warhawk
The Super AVI Curtiss Warhawk, with its military-green dial, white contrasting chronograph counters, and red accents, plays on its namesake’s famous shark-mouth nose art that gave the plane its unmistakable identity.
Super AVI Mosquito
The Super AVI Mosquito features a combination polished and satin-brushed black ceramic bezel and a black dial with white contrasting chronograph counters. Its red and orange elements recall the roundels and markings found on the versatile plane, dubbed the “Wooden Wonder”.
