Discover the Aviator 8
The Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk collection is a tribute to the famed P-40 Warhawk fighter plane. At the time these iconic aircrafts were being built – between 1938 and 1944 – Breitling’s Huit Aviation Department was also making history with its groundbreaking onboard instruments for the RAF and other air forces. Two chronographs and an understated three-hand model celebrate these aviation legends.
The Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk, the Aviator 8 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk, and the Aviator 8 Automatic 41 Curtiss Warhawk collectively celebrate two true innovators in aviation.
Featuring rotating bezel and distinctive triangular pointer, the watches revisit the iconic Reference 768 - one of Breitling’s first pilot watches.
