Following the Asian Tour (2013), the largest professional civilian aerobatics team flying on jets is making its first appearance on the American continent for a grand tour that will take it all over the United States as well as Canada. An opportunity to fly high the Breitling colors.


The very successful launch of the Avenger Blackbird, the Black annodized titanium Avenger in a massive 48mm case, has prompted the release of a 44mm sized version dubbed the Avenger Blackbird 44. This provides a more real-life sized version of the very cool black titanium watch.

Within just a few months, the Avenger Blackbird has proved a hit among fans of ultra-technical instruments. It continues its winning ways in a new version with a smaller diameter but an equally original and forceful design.

From Breitling’s continued partnership with John Travolta, comes this cool video featurette with John Travolta flying a jet, and checking out the North American X-15 rocket-plane.


Two flying legends in the Breitling sky
Global star, seasoned pilot and aviation aficionado, John Travolta has been flying the Breitling banner for more than 10 years. For the new 2015 campaign advertisement, the privileged partner of aeronautics professionals depicts him alongside another flying legend, the North American X-15, exceptionally loaned by the Air Force Flight Test Museum from its base at Edwards, California. During the 1960s, this experimental rocket-plane made nearly 200 flights, pushing the limits of aeronautics and opening the door to space, notably by setting two historical records: one for altitude in 1963, at 107,960 m, and the other for speed, at 7274 km/h (Mach 6.7). The photos for this new visual co-starring Travolta and the legendary X-15 were shot in California, on the runway of the famous Mojave Air and Space Port. They are a vivid tribute to the conquest of the skies, a grand adventure with which Breitling is closely linked through its reliable, accurate and innovative instruments.

I just posted up a video review of this cool little boutique diver from Raven. Limited edition of 50 pieces in the no-date configuration, quite rare… you’ll never see anyone else rocking one of these! Hope you enjoy the video review:
