“The Avenger was created to stand up to the relentless conditions of a jet cockpit and to support pilots in demanding aerial maneuvers. Its redesign demanded nothing less,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.
Garmin has introduced its latest aviator smartwatch, the D2TM Mach 1 Pro, which features a touchscreen display, up to 25 days of battery life, an LED flashlight, and more.
Limited to 300 pieces, the $11,900 pilot watch is available exclusively in the United States, according to officials with the Swiss watchmaker.
Breitling has introduced three new watches based on the Swiss company’s classic AVI Co-Pilot watch, including a limited re-edition of a popular watch from 1964.
A new watch honors the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP).
As the last of the 747 airliners rolls off the Boeing production line, Breitling is launching a limited-edition Navitimer celebrating the jet that revolutionized air travel.
Linda, an FBO employee in California, writes: What can you tell me about pilot’s watches? It seems like all the pilots I see — especially the men — wear HUGE watches. Is this something they actually need? Or is it a style thing? And are they as expensive as they look?
The limited edition watches were released in two models to celebrate the humanitarian organization that “uses the power of aviation to bring medical support to remote and vulnerable communities in more than 50 countries.”
The D2 Mach 1 includes preflight, in-flight and post-flight features and tools to assist pilots in navigation and enhance situational awareness, along with multi-band frequency and multi-GNSS support for better and more accurate GPS positioning, Garmin officials said.
