The Breitling Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Mosquito Watch AB01194A1B1X2 pays tribute to the legendary de Havilland Mosquito plane, blending vintage design elements with contemporary watchmaking precision. Inspired by 1930s onboard flight clocks and the iconic Breitling 765 AVI Co-Pilot watch, this model is a perfect balance of history and modernity.

 

The watch features a robust 43mm stainless steel case, complemented by a black stain-brushed ADLC-coated stainless steel bezel adorned with a practical red pointer. This combination provides a striking contrast and adds to the watch's vintage charm. The case is water-resistant up to 100 meters and includes a screw-locked crown and cambered sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The case back also features sapphire glass, offering a clear view of the Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01 movement inside.

 

The in-house automatic B01 movement, COSC certified for its accuracy, boasts a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. It powers various functions on the dial, including hours, minutes, central chronograph seconds, a date feature, and three subsidiary dials for continuous seconds, 30 minutes, and 12 hours. The dial itself is a masterpiece, finished in smooth black with Super-LumiNova hour, minute, and central seconds hands. Red and orange accents on the dial pay homage to the roundels and markings found on the fuselage of the de Havilland Mosquito plane, enhancing the watch's aviation heritage.
