Breitling DC3 World Tour and Limited Edition Navitimer 01

Breitling, a pioneer of pilots watches with a long-standing and rich aviation heritage , this year, the brand are embarking upon a truly historic journey with legendary aircraft - the Breitling Douglas DC-3.

The Douglas DC-3 is a twin-engine propeller plane, first launched in 1935. After its involvement in the Normandy landings in 1944, it soon became a part of the fleet for most major airlines, and is considered the first commercial passenger aircraft. Although over 16,000 were produced, today fewer than 150 of them remain - one of which is the Breitling DC-3.

Between March and September 2017, the Breitling DC-3 is completing a multi-stop, round-the-world trip, and Breitling are offering its customers the chance to be a part of this voyage.
