Swiss watch manufacture Breitling has partnered with MR PORTER, the award-winning online destination for men’s style, to utilize the power of e-commerce for selling its wristwatches online. MR PORTER will offer a curated selection of 31 timepieces from Breitling’s iconic product families.
Breitling has also created a very special timepiece to celebrate its new partnership with MR PORTER. The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition is part of the Navitimer 8 collection that Breitling introduced earlier in 2018.
The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition will be produced in a series limited to 1000 pieces. This watch houses the iconic Breitling Manufacture Caliber B01, one of the world’s finest mechanical chronograph watch movements. Like all Breitling watches, the Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition is a COSC-certified chronometer.
This timepiece is a study in style, featuring an elegant silver dial and anthracite contrasting chronograph with small seconds subdials. Its cutting-edge movement is visible through a transparent sapphire caseback, while a distinctive satin-brushed bezel features indexes and Arabic numerals in addition to its practical pointer. The watch is presented on a brown leather strap. The limited edition will be available exclusively from MR PORTER as of June 4, 2018. From July onwards, it will also be available in Breitling Boutiques and select Breitling retailers around the world.
Besides the limited edition, a curated selection of 31 timepieces from across Breitling’s iconic Navitimer, Superocean, Chronomat, and Professional families will also be made available on MR PORTER.
