In celebration of the 100th anniversary of naval aviation, Breitling has announced the Naval Centennial Limited Edition Airwolf as its commemorative timepiece. This unique watch features pilot functions such as a 1/100th of a second chronograph, a countdown timer, an alarm, a second timezone with a separate alarm, a UTC and a perpetual calendar. The watch also offers a nighttime reading function, thanks to the NVG compatible display backlighting system.
What are your chances of getting one of these watches? Only 500 pieces will be produced and 50 of them will be given to the Naval Aviation Foundation; Breitling is a Silver National Sponsor of the organization. If you do manage to get your hands on the watch, Breitling will donate $100 back to the Foundation thanks to your purchase.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this story surrounds the first piece that will be produced. This innagural watch will journey about the globe with naval aviators only to return to Washington D.C. on Decemeber 3, 2011, just in time for the closing event. The watch and it’s documented adventures will be presented at the December ceremony.
Aside from this watch, Breitling has a ton of events planned to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the naval aviation!
