BREITLING Releases Aerospace Evo Cirrus Aircraft Limited Edition
Breitling, has announced an all-new Aerospace Evo Cirrus Aircraft Limited Edition, made in collaboration with the global leader in aviation, Cirrus Aircraft. This grand classic among pilot’s instruments is a multifunction electronic chronograph that adopts a non-glare stealth look in black satin-brushed titanium, issued in a limited series of only 220 pieces.
The Aerospace Evo Cirrus Aircraft Limited Edition’s digital and analog display includes a customized dial with the Cirrus Aircraft logo at the 3 o’clock position and a silhouette of their best-selling aircraft at the 9 o’clock position. Additionally, the minute hand features a parachute, paying homage to the innovative and life-saving Cirrus Airframe Parachute System, which to date has returned more than 140 Cirrus pilots and passengers safely to their families. The three parallel bars found on the hour hand represent the three models of Cirrus airplanes: the SR20, the SR22 and the SR22T. The production of this 220 limited edition model salutes the numeric components of the SR20 and SR22.
Each black satin-brushed titanium caseback includes an iconic design of a Cirrus aircraft, the inscription “Cirrus Aircraft – The Plane With The Parachute,” and is individually numbered from one to 220. The engraved rotating bezel is distinguished by its four integrated rider tabs facilitating handling, while protecting the sapphire crystal, which is glare-proofed on both sides. The details are perfectly complimented by an ultra-sturdy, high-tech Military fabric brown strap, complete with folding clasp.
“With our strong and historic ties to aviation, it is our great pleasure to collaborate with Cirrus Aircraft in creating this unique limited edition chronograph for Cirrus aviators,” said Thierry Prissert, Breitling USA President. “Our mission to create ultra-sturdy, ultra-reliable and ultra-high-performance instruments for pilots aligns perfectly with the mission of Cirrus Aircraft.”
Equipped with a chronometer-certified SuperQuartz movement, 10 times more accurate than the standard quartz, it is distinguished by its powerful and dynamic, yet technical design and peerless functionality. Simply rotating, pressing or pulling out the crown is enough to operate the entire set of functions that are all especially useful to aviators: a 1/100th of a second chronograph, countdown timer, a second time zone, an alarm, an audible time signal and a calendar.
