Since its inception in 1884, Swiss watchmaker Breitling has carved out a permanent place for itself in the luxury accessories market. Renewed for its precision- made chronometers, superior aesthetics and premium price tags, Breitling has become synonymous with sophistication, class and cutting-edge technology. With 2019 seeing the brand revisit some classic faces from the past, as well as putting a contemporary twist on last year’s catalog, it’s time to take a look at which of this year’s offerings are most worthy of splashing your cash on.

Like the original, this classic aviation watch is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09 and features a black dial with tone-on-tone small second, 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters.
