Breitling the Swiss watchmaker - renowned as the leading manufacturer of aviation watches and, official supplier to the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows - has announced the launch of the Breitling Avenger Royal Air Force Red Arrows Limited Edition, produced in a series of 220 pieces. The watch released in partnership with the Royal Air Force exclusively features the distinctive emblems of its renowned aerobatic display team. As the only luxury watch brand granted exclusive permission to feature the Red Arrows distinctive emblems, this is a collectors piece with a generational legacy, limited to just 220 pieces.
The Breitling Avenger RAF Red Arrows Limited Edition has a 45 mm stainless-steel case with a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel. Its striking blue dial features the famous Diamond Nine on the dial at 9 o'clock, as well as red accents reflecting the colours of the Royal Air Force. The red-tipped second-hand GMT Red Arrow highlighting the second time zone adds another dash of colour. The hands and indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova luminescent material that makes them easily readable in all lighting conditions. The caseback is engraved with the Royal Air Force Red Arrows crest alongside the unique limited-edition number of each piece.
The Avenger RAF Red Arrows Limited Edition is powered by a Breitling Caliber 32, a COSC-certified chronometer movement with a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. It is water-resistant to 30 bars (300 meters). The special limited-edition Avenger is presented on an elegant brushed stainless-steel bracelet with folding clasp. Thanks to its rugged bezel and its special grip-pattern on the crown, the Avenger can be easily operated wearing gloves and offers unrivalled safety and reliability to any airborne adventurer.
