Breitling Classic AVI Chronograph 42 Mosquito

Embark on a journey through aviation history with Breitling's Classic AVI collection, a tribute to the pioneering spirit of early aircraft. Rooted in the legacy of Breitling's Huit Aviation department, renowned for precision cockpit clocks in the 1930s, the Classic AVI draws inspiration from the iconic Ref. 765 AVI pilot's watch introduced two decades later. Honoring the legendary Vought F4U Corsair, a WWII naval aircraft celebrated for its exceptional speed and climb rate, this timepiece encapsulates the aircraft's "bent-wing" design and signature blue livery.

Crafted as a true pilot's watch, the Classic AVI Tribute to Vought F4U Corsair features large, legible Arabic numerals on the dial and knurled bezel for optimal grip, even in gloved hands. The 42mm case exudes durability, complemented by top-stitched calfskin straps reminiscent of classic flight gear. For an elegant alternative, a stainless-steel bracelet is also available. Pilots and travelers alike will appreciate the watch's legibility, wearability, and understated style. Powering the Classic AVI is the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 23 movement, ensuring precision with approximately 48 hours of power reserve. Immerse yourself in the rich history of aviation with the Classic AVI collection.
