For a long time, Breitling has a status that cannot be ignored in the aviation field. Since 1915, Breitling has provided flight pioneers with the first aviation chronograph watch. The advent of Breitling aviation chronographs was favored by pilots, especially those fashionable pilots who flew international or intercontinental flights such as Boeing and Douglas. At this year’s Baselworld, Breitling launched the first capsule series of aviation special edition watches, paying tribute to the legendary airline of Swissair, and at the same time reappearing the cool design style of the last century. Next, we will take the aviation chronograph 1B01 chronograph 43 Swiss Air Special Edition as an example to enjoy it together. (Watch model: AB01211B1B1X2)

This new special edition watch inherits the classic design of the aviation chronograph series, such as the flying slide rule, and integrates the retro personality of the 1960s and 1970s design, and once again leads the trend.
