Breitling Aviator 8 AVI REF. 765 1953 RE-EDITION 41mm steel case, uni directional 15 minute counter bezel, matte black dial protected by a highly-domed Hesalite crystal, hand-applied Super-LumiNova colour markers matching the original luminous of the 1950s. The AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition is powered by their in house B09 hand wound movement providing 70hr power reserve COSC-certified caliber based on the renowned Breitling Caliber 01. It is available on a black vintage-inspired leather strap with a pin buckle as a limited-edition of 1953.


There are only two concessions to its famous ancestor: the water resistance has been improved up to 3 bar (30 meters) and  “GENEVE” does not appear on the dial anymore. 


Why a 15minute count down bezel?  Back in the 1950s, they were of precious help for pilots in their final plane check, that should not exceed fifteen minutes.


This is a very faithful re-edtion of the AVI or Aviation "Co-Pilot" from 1953 which has now been produced in a limited series of 1953 pieces, each of which will be numbered “ONE OF 1953”
