In more recent times, Breitling has sponsored various classic aircraft, and last month the company announced plans to help fund the restoration of its legendary Super Constellation aircraft, one of the world’s three remaining flight-worthy Super Connies. The brand is also launching a limited edition of its legendary Navitimer aviation chronograph, from whose sale a $229,022 will go for the association.
The stainless steel case measures 42mm, has an AR-coated sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 30 meters. The dial comes in black only. Movement is the Swiss automatic Breitling caliber 23, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC, selfwinding, high-frequency (28,800 vibrations per hour), 25 jewels. 1/4th of a second chronograph, 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers. Bearing an inscription on the dial that reads Breitling Super Constallation, the watch has a golden B logo that’s reminiscent of the one used by the company back in the 1950s.
Limited to only 1,049 pieces (a tribute to the Lockheed L-1049), the watch comes also with several different strap bracelet combinations including Barenia, crocodile leather, an Air Racer bracelet or the Nativer bracelet. The list price for the Breitling Navitimer Super Constellation will be $6,475.
