Attention to detail

This take on a cult classic follows on from Breitling’s 2019 remaster of the Navimeter, and is once again designed in painstaking detail that the brand is known for.

As a result the Breitling AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition looks just like the 1950’s original, and is bound to garner a ton of new fans.

Breitling CEO, Georges Kern says “It was always clear to us that long-time Breitling fans would embrace these watches.”

He continued “But it’s also exciting to see how strongly they appeal to people who are new to our brand – they can take one look at a Re-Edition and see how much living history, innovation, and cool luxury we can pack into a single watch.”
