Breitling AVI 1953 - co-pilot for life
With the Breitling AVI 1953, the Swiss luxury brand relaunches the legendary AVI Ref. 765, which became known as the "Co-Pilot" and was one of the most popular pilot watches of the 1950s. Characterized by its oversized Arabic numerals, the design of the new re-edition focuses on maximum proximity to the original and is juxtaposed with the modern mechanics of the hand-wound B09 caliber. Experience living history and functional excellence with the AVI 1953 on your own wrist!
True to the original down to the last detail
The 41-millimeter chronograph is available in three variants: While the stainless steel and 18-karat red gold models appear with a black dial and are limited to 1,953 and 253 pieces, respectively, the platinum edition stands out with its blue dial and an even greater limitation to 153 pieces. All luxury watches in the AVI 1953 collection inspire with their uncompromising closeness to the historical model: not only the domed hesalite glass, but also the bezel, including its three screws for locking, corresponds exactly to the famous "Co-Pilot".
Faithfulness to the original is also in the dial: marked by its 15-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters, as well as a small seconds at nine o'clock, the Breitling AVI 1953 is equipped with the same Arabic numerals as the Ref. 765. They give the Swiss watches an excellent legibility, which is even at night thanks to the Superluminova coating. At the same time, the color of the luminous material was exactly copied from the historical "Co-Pilot". A love of detail that you will also appreciate in the current Navitimer 1 watches with their legendary slide rule.
70 hours power reserve with manual winding
Two visual features separate the AVI 1953 from its forefather: on the one hand, the "Geneve" lettering for the company's former headquarters has disappeared from the dial, and on the other, the water resistance has been increased to 3 bar. The biggest modernization that stands out is the mechanics of the luxury watches, because inside the Breitling AVI 1953 works the filigree manufacture movement B09 with a whopping 70-hour power reserve and COSC certification for the highest accuracy. A precision that is a given at Breitling: since its founding in 1884, the Grenchen-based brand has stood for passionate watchmaking with a functional focus. Its historical closeness to aviation still characterizes the manufacturer's image today and shapes the model family more than any other brand: get to know the new Aviator 8 Chronograph 43 with practical Day-Date function, for example.
