To celebrate the 50th
anniversary of the Patrouille
launches the limited edition Chronomat
44 GMT, the Swiss watchmaker’s classic aviation chronograph collection. As an exclusive aviation partner, Breitling
maintains an enduring relationship with the Swiss Air Force’s elite aerobatic team that has given birth to an array of numerous personalized models. A genuine wrist instrument for pilots, this multi-timezone chronomat
features a black dial with the flight team logo at 9 o’clock, a robust satin-brushed steel case, enclosed by a rotating bezel bearing inlaid rubber numbers. Designed with the outline of a red F-5E
Tiger II plane, the second hour hand also functions to display the second timezone
in 24-hour mode using an easy-to-use crown-adjustment system. A third timezone
reading is given by the 24-hour scale on the bezel. Capped by an engraved caseback
bearing the team's official anniversary logo, this iconic timepiece is indeed a fitting tribute to the half a century of aviation feats.
Find one at Schwarzschild’s on Alverser Drive, an authorized Breitling dealer.
