Just days ago, Breitling announced its newest partnership with Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, as the Official Timekeeper.
To celebrate the partnership, the brand has introduced the Aviator 8 Etihad Limited Edition in black steel. Limited to 500 pieces, the watch has been co-designed with Etihad Airways and complete with numbers in the Arabic language in gold with matching gold hands.
The Aviator 8 Etihad Limited Edition prominently displays the day of the week and the date along with the time. The day of the week is indicated at the 12 o’clock position while the date is ideally placed at 6 o’clock. Powered by the Breitling Calibre 45, the watch has a bidirectional rotor winding with over 38 hours of power reserve.
The black dial is revealed through a double anti-reflective sapphire glass making it easy to see even under the harsh sun. The 41 mm DLC-coated stainless steel case has a solid screwed back and is presented on a black leather strap.
The Aviator 8 Etihad Limited Edition is a COSC-certified chronometer and produced in a series limited to 500 pieces. The model will be exclusively available in Etihad home of Abu Dhabi before being released in the wider market and across the globe.
