Breitling is one of the most recognised watchmakers whose flying roots can be traced back to the 1930s. The brand spent many years in making highly precise pocket timepieces and spearheading innovations to the chronograph.
Breitling began supplying cockpit devices for military and civilian outfits in the 1930s. However, the brand achieved its ultimate notion for a pilot’s watch in 1962 when one of its timepieces reached the outer space.
Every top-notch watchmaker today in existence creates aviation timepieces of one kind or another. But Breitling is alleged to lean more into its aviation legacy, and today, there are a wide variety of pilot watches available in the brand’s catalogue.
So let’s explore some of the most popular and desirable Breitling pilot watches that are exclusively produced for the flight deck.

Breitling released the Aviator 8 AVI Re-Edition in 2020, based on the 1953’s Co-Pilot Reference 765 AVI. The watch features a 41mm case, 12-hour engraved bezel and big Arabic numeral markers.
The manually winding, COSC-rated movement offers a power reserve up to 70-hour. Breitling offered the Aviator 8 AVI Re-Edition in platinum, rose gold and steel.
This 1959 Re-Edition is as precise as the original model was 60years back. The dial of the Navitimer Re-Edition Reference 809 is also equipped with the domed Plexiglass on the top.
However, the Breitling Navitimer Re-Edition Reference 809 is produced in a limited number of 1,959pieces.
Interestingly, the watchmaker also unleashed a solid platinum edition that features a blue dial and strap. This platinum version is restricted to just 59 pieces globally.
What makes the Avenger 45 Automatic Seawolf Night Mission more appealing is its excellent water-resistant rating up to 3,000m (10,000ft).
The Avenger 45 Automatic Seawolf Night Mission features stencil-pattern Arabic numeral markers and a red-tipped seconds-hand.
However, the Arabic hour markers are meant for recalling the numbers employed on the aircraft carriers’ decks.
The Breitling Calibre B17 movement powers the watch. The movement is a refined ETA 2824-2, offering a power reserve up to 38hours.
