In a limited edition of 250 pieces, the unique traveler’s timepiece has a sleek black-steel case, onyx black dial, and distinct yellow accents, which mirrors the colors of the Breitling Jet Team’s fleet of L-39 C Albatros Jets. The eye-catching piece befits the world-famous Jet Team, who have toured North America and are known for their precision flying and breathtaking performances. This prestigious aerobatic display team is the largest of its kind; comprised of seven L-39 C Albatros jets that can reach speeds of up to 565 mph and 8G acceleration.

“The Breitling Jet Team has such a successful North American Tour this year and the first Jet Team timepiece was so popular, that we decided to do another version in the Chronomat GMT style as well,” said Breitling USA President Thierry Prissert. “As the Jet Team concludes the final leg of their American Tour with performances all around the U.S. and Canada in September and October, we wanted to introduce this unique timepiece so that crowds all around North American can enjoy.”

The Breitling Chronomat GMT Jet Team North American Tour timepiece features the Breitling Jet Team logo on the dial, while the caseback features the Breitling Jet Team American Tour logo in vibrant color with the limited edition numbering. A true traveler’s watch, the Chronomat GMT features the Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04, a 47 mm diameter case, and a crown-adjustable second time zone system. Each watch will be accompanied by a limited edition commemorative Breitling Jet Team American Tour coin. The limited edition piece will be available exclusively at Breitling Boutiques and select retailers we well as select Air Shows that the Jet Team will perform at throughout North America on the Tour.

“The Breitling Jet Team has had an amazing North American Tour,” said Breitling Jet Team Leader Jacques Bothelin. “We are thrilled that we are coming back in 2016. This year we had some incredible flights: the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, and Niagara Falls. It is very exciting to see what next year will hold.”
