Since 1884, Breitling has played a crucial role in the development of the wrist chronograph. Building on its reputation for precision and high-performance instruments, the brand has been a partner of aviation for nearly a century. As its chronographs are standard equipment in the cockpit, Breitling has naturally earned its status of "official supplier to world aviation."
Trained in the tough school of aviation, a domain where safety is of vital importance, Breitling places the same emphasis on quality in all its 100% Swiss–made “instruments for professionals.” It is one of the world's only major watch brands to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the ultimate token of precision, and manufacture its own mechanical chronograph movements entirely in its own workshops. Today, the Breitling family business is among the top independent family-owned Swiss watch brands.
In a limited edition of 500 pieces, this watch has a sleek blacksteel case, onyx black dial and distinct yellow accents, which mirrors the colors of the Breitling Jet Team's fleet of L-39 C Albatros jets.
Performance, audacity, precision. The Breitling Jet Team embodies the entire philosophy of excellence that has made Breitling the privileged partner of aviation. In 2015, the world's largest professional civilian aerobatic display team performing in jets, sets off to conquer America with a major tour featuring a string of stunning shows. To celebrate this event, Breitling has created a limited edition of the Chronomat 44 personalized in the colors of this exceptional team.
