Introducing The Breitling Classic AVI 42 Watch Collection

These new chronographs from Breitling honor four aviation legends.


Breitling has unveiled an exciting collection, the seven new Classic AVI watches. These chronographs pay homage to legendary aircraft while offering a more wearable size.

The Classic AVI series has 42mm x 14.7mm cases. Each model pays tribute to a specific aircraft. The F4U Corsair has a blue dial and steel bezel, the P-51 Mustang has a black dial and steel or rose gold case, the Curtiss Warhawk has a green dial and steel bezel, and the de Havilland Mosquito has a black dial with white counters and a black ceramic bezel.

Breitling Caliber 23 automatic movement powers the series, with a power reserve of 48 hours and boasting a 1/4 second chronograph with 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers.

The Classic AVI timepieces come with a calfskin leather strap or a five-row stainless steel bracelet, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.

The Classic AVI series is now available for purchase. Prices start at $5,800, with the F4U Corsair model on a steel bracelet priced at $6,100.

Breitling has also introduced two additional timepieces: the Super AVI “Mosquito Night Fighter” and the AVI Ref. 765 1964 Re-Edition.

The Super AVI “Mosquito Night Fighter” has a black ceramic case, a COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber B04, and a titanium and sapphire display caseback.
