Category: Style

Breitling is, without a doubt, one of the most prestigious watchmakers around, and their ever-evolving tribute to a number of history’s most prolific figures has only helped to solidify the brand’s status in horological circles. Now, the Swiss company is shifting its focus toward one of the premier aircraft manufacturers of the past century, Curtiss Wright, with an all-new homage called the Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk Edition.

This three-watch collection pays respect to one of the aviation industry’s most notable figures with a militaristic and utilitarian color scheme, customized detailing, and unique silhouettes as an homage to the creator of the P-40 Warhawk. The first watch in the collection, the Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk, features a matte green military finish dial alongside contrasting silver subdials and a rugged military strap. Utilizing Breitling’s in-house mechanical movement, the COSC-certified Manufacture Caliber 01, the 43mm timepiece exudes a classic look that harkens back to iconic watches worn by aviators during the era. Alongside the Aviator 9 BO1, the Aviator 8 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk and Aviator 8 Automatic 41 round out the stellar collection, featuring unique DLC-coated steel casing and eye-catching detailing that references the legendary P-40 Warhawk.
