The new Breitling Super AVI B04 Chronograph GMT 46 is a big and bold take on the classic 1953 AVI 765!
Back in 2020, Breitling introduced the Breitling AVI REF. 756 Re-Edition. With this limited edition of 1,953 pieces, Breitling created a rather faithful reproduction of the original 1953 AVI 765, albeit with a modern engine under the hood. However, the Breitling Super AVI B04 Chronograph GMT 46 takes a different path. It's a big, bold and rugged take on a classic and timeless design!
The 2021 Breitling Super AVI B04 46 Chronograph GMT 46 has a case with a generous diameter of 46mm. The case is crowned by a bi-directional bezel with an engraved 12-hour scale, in either stainless steel, or black ceramic for the Mosquito. The case is water resistant up to 100m, and fitted with sapphire crystals both front and back.
The Breitling Super AVI B04 46 Chronograph GMT 46 is available in four versions. Each sees it's colors inspired by a historical aircraft. The Breitling Super AVI B04 46 Chronograph GMT 46 Mustang is arguably the most restraint, with a black dial with tone-on-tone counters and warm beige SuperLuminova on dial and hands. The Corsair takes on a colder and more technical look with its blue dial, black strap, and white numerals. The Curtiss Warhawk has a green dial with contrasting sub dials. The Mosquito adds another twist to the design with its black ceramic bezel, and black dial with silver sub dials. All in all, each of the Breitling Super AVI B04 46 Chronograph GMT 46 has a character of its own, and we'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite!
The Breitling Super AVI B04 46 Chronograph GMT 46 is powered by the brand's in-house caliber B04. A variations of the highly-regarded B01, this self-winding movement has a column-wheel actuated chronograph with vertical clutch, and an additional 24-hour hand which can be moved independently forward or backwards in one-hour increments. A true travelers watch!
