Breitling Classic AVI Chronograph 42 Tribute To Vought F4U Corsair #A233801A1C1X1
From brave first takeofs to the birth of commercial air travel, Breitling's history is inseparable from that of flight. In the 1930's, Breitling Huit Aviation department made its name inventing precision cockpit clocks. Two decades later, it introduced yet another novel flight instrument, this time in wearable form: The Ref.765 AVI. That pioneering pilot's watch provided the technical backdrop for today's Classic AVI, a collection inspired by the rugged spirit of famed early aircraft. The Classic AVI tribute to VOught F4U Corsair honors one of those legends. As a WWII naval aircraft, the Corsair had to make tricky takeoffs and landings from cariers and remote landing strips. Speed and lift were of the essence, and the plane came through with flying colors, becoming the first single-engine fighter to crack the 400 mph mark, while also providing an exceptional rate of climb. Its "bent-wing" design, oversized propeller and signature blue livery make it an emblem of avaiation history. Stainless steel case, leather strap. 42mm case.
