Breitling unveils two new limited edition IRONMAN collaboration watches

The Endurance Pro IRONMAN® watches commemorate the triathlons that are set to take place in the coming months. Both watches are limited editions of 250 pieces each.
For those not in the know, the IRONMAN triathlon is organised by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) and is known to be one of the toughest endurance races that includes three legs - several kms swimming, cycling, and running in a single day. In 2021, Breitling joined hands with the IRONMAN triathlon sporting event, and released two watches to commemorate the partnership. This year, Breitling is introducing two new versions, the Endurance Pro IRONMAN® 70.3 World Championship (Ref. X823105C1M1S1) and Endurance Pro IRONMAN® World Championship (Ref. E823103A1M1S1), which celebrates the races of the same name. 
The new Endurance Pro IRONMAN® 70.3 World Championship is crafted in Breitlight, a polymer fibre 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel. It is also non-magnetic. The watch has an IRONMAN-branded rubber strap in turquoise. On the other hand, the Endurance Pro IRONMAN® World Championship is made in titanium and has an IRONMAN-branded blue rubber strap. The 44mm timepieces have anthracite bidirectional bezels with compass scale, and turquoise or blue rehauts with pulsometer scales. The grey gradient dial features chronograph subdials at 2 o’clock, 10 o’clock, and 6 o’clock - the last of these flaunts the competition’s logo. There are also Super-LumiNova®-coated Arabic hour markers, and hour and minute hands. The COSC-certified watches are powered by Breitling Caliber 82 and are water resistant to 100 metres. 
The Endurance Pro IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in turquoise marks the competition in Lahti, Finland, which is set to take place over August 26 and 27, 2023, while the special-edition Endurance Pro IRONMAN World Championship in blue marks both the men’s and women’s competition in Nice, France, on September 10, 2023, and in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, on October 14, 2023 respectively. 

“Completing the IRONMAN is the dream of a lifetime for so many people; it deserves an extraordinary way to be remembered.” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern. 

Both the IRONMAN race editions are limited to 250 pieces each.
