To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Breitling’s first nonstop balloon flight around the world, the watch brand is launching a special Aerospace B70 Orbiter timepiece.

Attired in a 43mm-wide titanium watch case, the reference features a bright orange dial that nods to the colors of the original Orbiter 3 capsule. Its outer edges are doused in a smoky fumé, softly echoing the color of its two LCD displays. The case is also fitted with a bidirectional and ratcheted bezel, complete with engraved minute markings.

As for power, the watch runs on the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B70, a COSC-certified movement combining both analog and digital functionalities. It’s engineered with a thermo-compensated SuperQuartz™, with a digital display providing the functions of flyback, electronic tachymeter and chronograph.

A piece of the original air balloon is also integrated into the watch, where it can be observed through the transparent caseback. Imprinted on the glare-proof sapphire crystal is an inscription around the perimeter, reading “First non-stop flight
around the world 25th anniversary.”

Launching today, exactly 25 years since the Orbiter 3 air balloon completed its journey, the Aerospace B70 Orbiter is available in two strap options: a titanium integrated bracelet and a black rubber strap. Head over to Breitling’s official website for more details regarding its price and availability.
