About BREITLING NAVITIMER SUPER CONSTELLATION limited edition
After a temporary grounding period for maintenance work, the famous BREITLING Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation – one of the world’s three remaining flightworthy “Super Connies” – is preparing to take to the air once more. In a ceremony held on 30 April 2011 in Germany, BREITLING renewed its financial support for the preservation of this legendary aircraft. The brand also announced the launch of a limited edition Navitimer chronograph that will delight devotees of the Super Constellation, while serving to raise funds to secure its future.
Issued in a run of 1,049 – in tribute to the Lockheed L-1049 – this exceptional instrument bears the inscription “Breitling Super Constellation” on its dial, as well as a golden B shaped like the 1950s logo, an initial also echoed on the plane’s three rear stabilizers. The caseback is engraved with the technical specifications of the “Super Connie” as well as its silhouette appearing in a medallion.
By supporting the safeguarding of the “Super Constellation”, BREITLING confirms its determination to preserve the heritage of aviation – the magnificent adventure with which its own history is so closely entwined.
