Breitling celebrates the return of its famous aircraft

First published: 06-05-2011

Well-known watchmaker Breitling has unveiled a special timepiece to mark a standout occasion for the brand.

The Navitimer Super Constellation Limited Edition is being released as a way of celebrating the re-launch of the Breitling Super Constellation aircraft.

Grounded previously for maintenance work to be carried out, the plane that has been dubbed the "King of the Atlantic" is preparing to once again take to the skies.

Watch fans can celebrate this announcement in style via Breitling's special timepiece, which comes with a wealth of eye-catching elements.

For example, consumers will be able to spot the Breitling Super Constellation inscription clearly across the ticker's dial, as well as a golden B, which is in reference to the company's 1950s logo.

A high-frequency movement and three easy-to-view sub-dials also make reading the time a breeze, while a sleek date window at around the four o'clock position adds to its practicality features.

Breitling, which was founded back in 1884, also makes sure that elegance is not missed on the strap, thanks to a barenia leather finish.
