Swiss luxury watchmaker Breitling has announced a partnership with Singapore Airlines (SIA) and its travel retailer, KrisShop, as part of the 70th-anniversary celebrations of the legendary Navitimer aviation watch. The collaboration has spawned a pair of commemorative timepieces, each made in a limited edition of 100 pieces. First of them is the Navitimer B01 Chronograph 41 Singapore Airlines Limited Edition. The celebratory watch features a dial finished in SIA’s signature blue color. In addition to that, the special edition also sports the SIA logo engraved on the crown. The rest of the timepiece is identical to the regular model which has three chronograph sub-dials, baton indexes, a circular slide rule, and a notched bezel. Powering the watch is the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 chronograph movement that’s housed inside the 41mm stainless steel case.
The second special watch is the Navitimer Automatic 38 Singapore Airlines Limited Edition which features a smaller 38mm stainless steel case. The caseback of the non-chronograph timepiece is engraved with SIA’s iconic batik design. Inside the case is the Breitling 17 movement which offers a 38-hour power reserve. Both special editions are paired with stainless steel bracelets and are engraved with “One of 100” on the caseback. The Navitimer B01 Chronograph 41 is priced at S$13,037 (approximately $9500), while the Navitimer Automatic 38 is priced at S$7,336 (about $5,300). The commemorative timepieces are available exclusively on KrisShop’s Batik Label concept store.
Alvin Soon, president of Breitling Asia, said: “We are particularly excited to embark on this journey with Singapore Airlines and KrisShop, a partnership united by a passion for aviation and an unwavering commitment to quality and precision. This was prominently reflected in the final product design, which we are proud to say was a truly collaborative effort between Breitling’s design department, pilots from Singapore Airlines and the KrisShop team.”
