Breitling Introduces the Endurance Pro University Editions in Collaboration with Four Outstanding Educational Institutions.
Breitling has launched a new collection of luxury watches, the Breitling Endurance Pro University Editions, in collaboration with four iconic educational institutions – Princeton University, The United States Naval Academy, The University of Alabama, and University of Michigan. The watches are designed with the colors and emblems of the universities, providing the ultimate athleisure watch for college sports enthusiasts around the world. The Endurance Pro combines high precision and innovative technology with vibrant, colorful design, and is a lightweight, sports-friendly watch that appeals to both committed athletes and more casual sports enthusiasts.
The watch is powered by a SuperQuartz movement, and it comes with a black dial, a black bidirectional rotating bezel with engraved cardinal compass points, and a Diver Pro rubber strap in the same color as the inner bezel ring. The watch is water-resistant up to 10 bar/100 meters/330 feet and comes with a two-year warranty.
The Breitling Endurance Pro (Princeton University edition) features an orange inner bezel, matching orange strap, Princeton Shield on the dial and caseback. The Breitling Endurance Pro United States Naval Academy edition has a blue inner bezel, coordinating blue strap, Navy Midshipmen logo on the dial and the United States Naval Academy Anchor engraving on the caseback. The Breitling Endurance Pro The University of Alabama edition has a red inner bezel and strap, Alabama Crimson Tide athletic department logo on the dial and a Where Legends Are Made® campaign engraving on the caseback. The Breitling Endurance Pro University of Michigan edition features a blue inner bezel and matching strap, signature maize Block M on the dial and Michigan Lamp of Knowledge Seal engraved on the caseback.
The Breitling Endurance Pro combines an ultra-lightweight 44-millimeter Breitlight case and a thermo-compensated SuperQuartz movement ten times more accurate than conventional quartz, and it offers optimal comfort, matchless precision, and functionality that will appeal both to committed athletes and to more casual sports enthusiasts. Designed for men and women whose active lives blend a professional mindset with a sporty lifestyle, the Endurance Pro is equal to the challenges of a rigorous workout but fashionable enough for everyday wear.
As Breitling USA President Thierry Prissert explains, “When I went to my first collegiate football game in Alabama, the passion and enthusiasm I saw first-hand from the fans had me so inspired, I knew this would be the perfect alignment for a custom Breitling Endurance Pro University of Alabama edition watch. With this idea came the vision to expand the University Editions with three other iconic colleges with Princeton University, The United States Naval Academy and The University of Michigan. Their signature school colors compliment the already colorful Breitling Endurance Pro collection, and we knew students, alumni and fans of these universities would like to showcase this school spirit on their wrists.”
The Endurance Pro is inspired by the Breitling Sprint, a memorable watch from the 1970s that combined a pulsometer with an impressively light weight. It was ideal for athletes who wanted to be able to monitor their heart rates. It was made from resin, so it was particularly comfortable on the wrist. Of course, it was also produced in some dazzling 1970s colors, and the Endurance Pro is clearly a modern evolution of that design.
Breitling introduced Breitlight in 2016. The robust, ultra-light material’s characteristics speak for themselves: 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than stainless steel, the material is nonmagnetic, thermally stable, and hypoallergenic. Breitlight is highly resistant to scratches, traction, and corrosion. It also feels warmer to the touch than metal and has a slightly textured effect, accentuating the originality of the design. Exclusive to Breitling, it is 100% Swiss made.
