When Breitling became the official onboard timekeeper of Etihad Airways, they celebrated in the only way they knew how: with a limited edition timepiece

This is the Breitling Aviator 8 broken down into its component parts:

Limited edition

The phrase that lights up a watch-collector’s eyes. The COSC-certified Aviator 8 is limited to 500 pieces and was co-designed with Etihad Airways.

Dialling up

The black dial is revealed through a double anti-reflective sapphire glass, while the 41 mm DLC-coated stainless steel case has a solid screwed back and is presented on a black leather strap.

Home time

With the region at heart, it features Arabic language numbers in gold with matching hands.

The date window

The day of the week is indicated at the 12 o’clock position while the date is neatly placed at 6 o’clock.

Zero wind-up

Powered by the Breitling Calibre 45, this automatic wristwatch has a bidirectional rotor winding with over 38 hours of power reserve.
