Breitling Aviator 8 Mosquito
With its latest launch, Breitling draws on the design of onboard clocks that were designed by its Huit Aviation department in the Thirties and from its famous 765 AVI, known as the Co-Pilot. Honouring a plane made entirely of wood, the de Havilland Mosquito was well known for its incredible speed and manoeuvrability.
The new watch, the Aviator 8 Mosquito features a 43 mm stainless-steel case and a black satin-brushed ADLC-coated stainless steel bezel with a practical red pointer, indexes, and Arabic numerals. Its black dial has contrasting silver subdials – an indication of the Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01 in-house mechanical movement that powers the watch.
The eye-catching orange central hour, minute, and central second hands are coated with Super LumiNova®, making the watch legible in limited-lighting situations. Its striking red and orange accents recall the roundels and markings featured on the fuselage of the de Havilland Mosquito and add to the watch’s allure. The hand of the small second subdial features a black varnish finish.
