Breitling CEO Georges Kern comments …

“Curtiss Wright produced the P-40 Warhawk at the same time Breitling and its Huit Aviation Department were making onboard instruments for planes used by the RAF and other air forces. With this partnership and these great new watches, we are reaffirming the importance of Breitling’s aviation heritage to the brand.”

This looks like a bit of a return to form for Breitling, these do look fabulous and a welcome change from some rather placid offerings over the past year or so.
