Breitling Navitimer Super Constellation Limited Edition Watch - Tribute to Legendary Plane

May 05, 2011
The house of Breitling has released its new Navitimer Super Constellation Limited Edition watch. It pays tribute to the legendary Breitling Super Constellation, one of the world’s three remaining “Super Connies”, which is about to take to the air again. It became possible due to the brand’s financial support.

Endowed with four ultra-powerful “turbo-compound” engines, the Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation is one of the brightest symbols of the sky conquest. It impresses greatly by its dolphin-like curved fuselage and triple-tail design. This propeller-driven long-haul plane dominated civil aviation in the 1950s and earned its fame as the “King of the Atlantic”.

The new Bretling watch is proposed with a 42mm case, rendered in stainless steel. It is equipped with a top anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The case is built to be 30-meter water-resistant.

The timepiece comes fitted with a black dial. It ensures central hours and minutes as well as small seconds, featured at 9 o’clock. The display of the new Breitling Navitimer Super Constellation Limited Edition watch also offers 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers, supported by a 1/4th of a second chronograph function. The date indication appears in the aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock.

Animating the functions is a Swiss-made automatic Breitling movement - the caliber 23, officially certified as a chronometer by the COSC. Embellished with 25 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

Offered in a limited edition of 1049 pieces, the new Breitling watch is teamed with Barenia or crocodile leather straps. It can be also accessorized with Navitimer or Air Racer bracelets.
