At this year edition of New York Fashion Week, Breitling launched a unique timepiece in a partnership with Etihad Airways, one of the world’s most luxurious airlines in the planet: the Aviator 8 Day & Date 41 Limited Edition is a new exclusive model, a stunning modern watch, a fine craftsmanship masterpiece.
Presented at a VIP event celebrating the airline and watchmaker’s third year of partnership, the limited-edition Aviator 8 Day & Date 41 Etihad Airways has also been co-designed by the UAE-based airline.
With an exclusive design, this timepiece is a real beauty. With a warm color scheme and the novelty of numerals in a very good-looking script, eastern Arabic numerals appear on the dial of the new Breitling timepiece in an affirmation to Etihad’s Arabian heritage. With a huge passion for aviation, excellence, and accuracy, Etihad offers a perfect platform for Breitling, who will serve as the airline’s Official Timekeeper. Limited to 500 pieces, this is also the watchmaker’s first timepiece featuring the Arabic language.
Finished in black steel, the luxury timepiece with a modern design is armed with high-end brand Breitling’s tried and true Caliber 45 movement. The in-house workhorse is self-winding, chronometer-certified and provides to owners a maximum of 45 hours of power reserve. The dark 41mm steel case is comfortable on the wrist but has the added presence one would expect from an all-black timepiece. However, the case is the same as the cockpit instrument-inspired Navitimer 8 from the current collection.
Keeping to the black and gold theme, the timepiece that incorporates the Arabic language into the dial, with the numerals and day and date complications all featuring the world’s fifth most spoken language. The luxury watch offers a distinct look and appearance due to the beaded bezel and the tone on tone subdials on a black dial.
According to Tim Sayler, CMO of Breitling: “Breitling and Etihad represent aviation and style, and we look forward to developing this great partnership with many more projects in the near future.” The timepiece will firmly be available in Abu Dhabi, Etihad’s home base, until early 2020, when it becomes available all over the globe.
