Ask about this watch

The Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk is ready for any assignment. It features a military green dial with a matte finish, a polished satin-finish metal band and contrasting silver-colored sub-dials. At half past 5 o’clock there is a date window. In the heart of the watch is Breitling’s in-house mechanical movement: The COSC-certified manufacturing caliber 01 offers a power reserve of an incredible 70 hours.

In the impressive transparent sapphire crystal caseback, a Curtiss lettering and a dynamic image of a P-40 Warhawk with the unmistakable and spectacular coat of hair on the aircraft’s bow were engraved. The Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk features a 43mm stainless steel case and is water resistant to 10 bars (100 meters). Thanks to the numbers and hands coated with Super-LumiNova® bulbs, the clock can be read easily in all lighting conditions.

Breitling’s storied association with chronographs and aeronautics dates back to 1884, when Léon Breitling laid the foundation for a company that would remain in his family for nearly a century.

In 1923, a patented pocket watch with two chronograph pushers caused a sensation. The one pusher in the 2 o’clock position was used for starting and stopping, while the other, integrated into the crown, reset the chronograph mechanism. For the first time, it was possible for the stopwatch to measure multiple times in sequence.

The Breitling Cinema Squad

In our modest way, we know that a Breitling watch is also aspirational – a dream worth achieving. Breitling watches have had remarkable roles on the wrists of some of our most beloved actors, including Sean Connery as James Bond in Thunderball in 1965.

At Breitling, we believe in the power of a team, the strength of a group, and the mutual identification of a common target, which ultimately leads to success.
