Breitling is introducing three new Aviator 8 watches in honor of Curtiss Wright, a prominent American aircraft manufacturer. The Swiss brand, famous for its pilot’s watches, is tightly associated with the world of aviation. The Curtiss Warhawk Editions are continuing in the same vein with two new chronographs and an understated three-hander. This special edition series pays tribute to the maker of the iconic P-40 Warhawk airplane model, which was manufactured between 1938 and 1944.
The Breitling Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk is a generously proportioned, 43mm-wide stainless steel watch paired with a matte-finish military green dial. The model is powered by Breitling’s in-house Caliber 01, which delivers no less than 70 hours of power reserve. Visible on the dial are the 12-hour and 30-minute chronograph counters, and a small second subdial – all hallmarks of the brand’s first in-house mechanical movement.
The masculine case is topped by a bidirectional rotating bezel with Arabic numerals, indexes, and a red pointer. The dial reveals the hour and minute hands and the Arabic numerals coated in Super-LumiNova. The reverse side of the case has a transparent sapphire crystal printed with a Curtiss inscription and an image of his famous airplane. The case is presented on a green military strap and it is water resistant to 100 meters. The chrono, reference AB01192A1L1X1, is priced at USD 7,710.00 prior taxes.
The Breitling Aviator 8 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk repeats the same military-inspired design with a matte-finish green dial and tone-on-tone subdials. The Breitling Caliber 13 powers the 12-hour and 30-minute chronograph counters and a small second subdial. This mechanical movement is COSC-certified, and it offers a power reserve of around 42 hours. The case-back, engraved with a Curtiss inscription and an image of a P-40 Warhawk, provides a glimpse at the movement. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters and presented on a green military strap. The watch, reference A133161A1L1X1, retails for USD 5,565.00 excl. sales taxes.
The Breitling Aviator 8 Automatic 41 Curtiss Warhawk is an understated three-hander powered by a Breitling Caliber 17 movement endowed with 40 hours of power reserve. Same as all Breitling watches, the Aviator 8 Automatic is COSC-certified. The watch case is made from blackened stainless steel, and it measures 41mm in diameter. It also has a bidirectional rotating bezel with a distinctive red pointer and a central seconds hand with a red tip. Just like the chronographs, the watch comes with an engraved case-back bearing the Curtiss inscription and an image of the P-40 airplane. The three-hander, reference M173152A1L1X1, goes for USD 4,330.00.
