You Can Now Buy Breitling Watches On Mr PorterWritten by Alvin Wong
Starting with this limited edition Navitimer Aviator 8.
The case for selling watches online retail has found yet another supporter in Breitling. The recently revitalised brand, which recently unveiled a revamped repertoire under new CEO Georges Kern, has announced a new e-commerce partnership with luxury lifestyle retail portal, Mr Porter.
In time, the online platform is slated to stock “a curated selection” 31 timepieces from Breitling. To kick things off in a grand way, Breitling is offering a limited edition of the Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph, which is capped at 1,000 pieces.
Available now, the timepiece sports a high-contrast black-and-silver ‘panda’ dial that is all the rage these days, and is powered by Breitling’s in-house automatic B01 chronograph movement that is COSC-certified. The exclusive edition, along with subsequent Breitling watches on offer on Mr Porter, ships to Singapore.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
