Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is now offering its passengers the Navitimer B01 SWISS Limited Edition, recently launched by Breitling. This special edition coincides with the 70th anniversary of this iconic watch and the 20th anniversary of SWISS . Limited to 700 pieces, the pilot’s watch will only be available on board selected SWISS long-haul flights . It was presented for the first time this Thursday morning by Dieter Vranckx, CEO of SWISS, and Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling. Since the launch of the first Navitimer in 1952, Breitling’s original pilot’s watch has enjoyed great popularity.

Dieter Vranckx, CEO of SWISS: “SWISS and Breitling share the same values. Both brands offer the highest quality products and services with scrupulous attention to detail. The new Navitimer SWISS Limited Edition combines these characteristics perfectly and I am very happy that we can offer it exclusively to our passengers on the occasion of our 20th anniversary ”.

The Navitimer B01 SWISS Limited Edition maintains its characteristic design details while being unique. The sobriety of the anthracite dial and the black chronograph counters perfectly highlight the red accents reminiscent of the typical SWISS red. An airplane also adorns the second hand. The SWISS logo is engraved on the back of the watch, as well as the words “ONE OF 700”, the distinctive sign of the limited series. The open case back is inspired by the turbine engine of a Boeing-777-300ER.
