Introducing our first #SQUADONAMISSION, the Breitling Jet Team.


Breitling celebrates the power of a team and the collective spirit of squads united in pursuit of their mission. Fueled by camaraderie and driven by purpose, we accomplish more together than we could alone. Over the coming months we will feature a series of exceptional squads made up of leading figures from the worlds of aviation, exploration, cinema, and sport.

The close-knit squad use the legendary Navitimer watch on all their missions. The ultimate aviation tool for calculation and navigation, the Navitimer has retained its status as of one of the world’s true iconic watches for more than 65 years. The Navitimer 8 is another perfect option for the pilots, with a design inspired from the cockpit clocks of the airplanes used in the 1930s.
