Breitling announces partnership with Etihad Airways with a brand new timepiece

United for a passion for aviation, Swiss luxury watch brand Breitling and the national airline of United Arab Emirates Etihad Airways have announced a new partnership together. To celebrate this special occasion, Breitling introduced a brand new watch – the Aviator 8 Etihad Limited Edition in black steel. Designed in collaboration with Etihad Airways, the watch is limited to just 500 pieces and houses numbers in the Arabic language.

The new release features special golden Arabic language numbers with matching gold hands that work perfectly against the black dial of the watch. The 41mm DLC-coated black stainless steel case with a solid screwed case back houses the Calibre 45 with a bidirectional rotor winding that clocks in a power reserve of 38 hours.

Keeping in tune with the Swiss brand's expert craftsmanship, the Breitling Aviator 8 Etihad Limited Edition is a COSC-ceritfied chronometer and is presented in a black leather strap.
