A133161A1L1X2Proving that aviation is still a crucial part of their DNA, Breitling have released this exceptional Breitling Aviator 8 Chronograph 43 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk watch to commemorate the maker of the iconic P-40 Warhawk aeroplane. Curtiss Warhawk was a renowned American aircraft manufacturer who became the largest supplier of aircrafts in the United States during World War II by supplying planes in large numbers to the U. S Armed Forces. Their most famous plane was the bold-looking P-40 Warhawk, the very plane that has inspired this Breitling Aviator 8 watch. Measuring to 43mm in size, the case of this Breitling Curtiss P-40 Warhawk watch is crafted from polished stainless steel and fitted with a ratcheted bidirectional bezel. Accents of red can be found on the red bezel marker at 12 o clock as well as on the tip of the chronograph seconds hand to reflect the same paint used on the nose of the P-40 Warhawk plane. The military green dial also tributes the main colour of the aircraft while also providing the perfect backdrop to bold Arabic numerals and propeller shaped hour and minute hands coated in Superluminova. Embraced within the case of this Breitling Aviator 8 Chronograph 43 Curtiss P-40 Warhawk watch is the COSC certified Breitling 13 mechanical movement which equips the watch with hour and minute function, a sub-seconds dial, 30 minutes and 12 hours chronograph counters, central chronograph seconds, a day and date window and a power reserve of 48 hours. The automatic calibre is also kept hidden behind a closed case back which has been beautifully engraved with an image of the famous P-40 plane and its distinctive shark mouth logo.
