Flying in tight formations in supersonic jets, the Patrouille Suisse Swiss Air Force Team was first created in the year 1964. Since then it has dazzled audiences with aerial performances across Switzerland and other European countries. To commemorate the 55thanniversary of this beloved Swiss Air Force team, Breilting launches their 550 piece limited edition Avenger Swiss Air Force Team.
Featuring a 45mm stainless-steel case with a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel, the watch creates a formidable impression on the wrist. The black dial of the watch is decorated with the Patrouille Suisse squadron logo at 9 o' clock and distinctive yellow and red accents that reflect the colours of the logo. Additionally, the yellow-tipped second hand works perfectly against the black indexes. The hands are filled with Super-LumiNova® making dial easy to read in all lighting conditions.
The case-back features an engraving of the Patrouille Suisse squadron’s 55th anniversary logo which basically consists of a stylised 55 and six supersonic jets in flight. It also features the words “words “ONE OF 550”, an indication of the timepiece's limited-edition status.
The Avenger Swiss Air Force Team is powered by the Breitling Calibre 13 which is a COSC-certified chronometer movement and clocks in a power reserve of 48 hours.
Strapped to this special edition timepiece is an anthracite leather military strap that completes the look of the watch.
