The new Breitling Aerospace B70 Orbiter celebrates 25th anniversary of the Breitling Orbiter 3 expedition

8 April 2024

On March 21, 1999, Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones achieved the first nonstop circumnavigation of the globe in a balloon. Landing in the Egyptian desert, their Breitling Orbiter 3 journey covered 45,633 km in 19 days, 21 hours, and 47 minutes.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of this feat, Breitling has released the Aerospace B70 Orbiter. This timepiece, with its vibrant orange dial mirroring the capsule’s color and adorned with the mission logo, is presented on a titanium bracelet or a black rubber strap. Its titanium case, chosen for its superior strength-to-weight ratio, houses the COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber B70.

This SuperQuartz™ movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz, powers a multitude of features including a 1/100th of a second chronograph (with split-time and flyback functions), countdown timer, second timezone, two alarms, lap function, and perpetual calendar. Best of all, each special edition watch contains a living piece of history: A segment of the original balloon, visible through the open caseback.
