Watch and Brand News Breitling Chronomat 44 Limited Edition

Breitling Jet Team

The Breitling Jets will be touring around the United States for the first time, flying in eighteen shows from coast to coast.  With the announcement of the Jets touring the States, it makes sense that Breitling also announced the release of their new Jet Team Chronomat 44, and has limited the release to 500 watches.

The Jet Team consists of seven L-39 C Albatros jets, reaching speeds up to 535 miles per hour.  The team wow’s the crowd with their maneuvers, including one where they fly just feet from each other! The team is the largest professional civilian aerobatics team.

The team is flying over legendary places all around the United States.  This list includes Cape Canaveral, Miami, the Statue of Liberty, and the Mount Rushmore memorial.  To celebrate, they produced the limited edition version of its famous pilot’s Chronomat chronograph.

The watch lines up with the reflection of the Jet Team featuring precision and speed.  The sleek and sporty watch fits perfectly for watch and aviation lovers.  Breitling has deep roots in the aviation world dating back to equipping World War 2 Royal Air Force fighter planes.

She has her eye on a few others including the Plum dial Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36mm and a Patek Twenty ~4 (4910/10 A011). While she enjoys the look of vintage watches, she is excited to learn about new models and build her collection.
