No watch brand in the world has a more impressive and enduring link to aviation than Breitling.
Breitling announced the launch of the Breitling Avenger Royal Air Force Red Arrows Limited Edition, produced in a series of 220 pieces. The watch released in partnership with the Royal Air Force exclusively features the distinctive emblems of its renowned aerobatic display team.

The Avenger Automatic GMT 45 Red Arrows Limited Edition features a sturdy 45mm stainless-steel case, blue dial with the distinctive 9 red arrows and a stainless-steel bracelet.
Breitling’s partnership with Red Arrows celebrates over a quarter of a century. As watchpro reports, the new watch is priced at £3,950 and is on sale for a limited time exclusively on Breitling’s e-commerce site before going out to distribution.” Breitling is the only luxury watch brand that can carry the squadron’s insignia on its watches.
Since 1965, the Red Arrows have earned a reputation as one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams and represent the speed, agility and precision of the Royal Air Force. With their famous ‘Diamond Nine’ shape and combination of close formations and precision flying in Hawk fast-jets, Red Arrows pilots represent the very best in flying and operational excellence.
In 2019, Breitling has redesigned the Avenger – a collection as bold and robust as its name suggests.
It joins two other collections – the Aviator 8 and the iconic Navitimer – in Breitling’s Air universe and marks an evolution of the brand’s pilot’s watches, once again confirming its status as the world’s leading manufacturer of aviation-related watches. Like the Navitimer and Aviator 8 collections, the Avenger has its own personality. It was created as a reliable companion for aerial adventurers who want to achieve something outstanding and unexpected. It’s completely at home on the wrist of a drone specialist mastering the skies from the ground, a pilot in the cockpit of a supersonic jet, or an aviation pioneer who has long been committed to challenging the conventional boundaries of flight.
Breitling Avenger Swiss Air Force Team Limited Edition
Last October, Breitling celebrated the 55th anniversary of the Patrouille Suisse Swiss Air Force Team, admired around the world for its dazzling aerial performances, with the launch of Breitling Avenger Swiss Air Force Team Limited Edition, produced in a series of 550 pieces.
The Breitling Avenger Swiss Air Force Team Limited Edition has a 45 mm stainless-steel case with a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel. Its striking black dial features the logo of the Patrouille Suisse squadron on the subdial at 9 o’clock as well as distinctive yellow and red accents that reflect the colors of the Patrouille Suisse squadron’s logo. The yellow-tipped second hand adds another dash of color. The hands and the black indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova, a luminescent material that makes them easily readable in all lighting conditions. The caseback is engraved with the Patrouille Suisse squadron’s 55thanniversary logo – a stylized 55 and six supersonic jets in flight – along with the words “ONE OF 550”, an indication of its special limited-edition status.
The Avenger Swiss Air Force Team Limited Edition is powered by a Breitling Caliber 13, a COSC-certified chronometer movement with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. It is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 meters). The special limited- edition Avenger is presented on an anthracite leather military strap with a pin buckle.
