Breitling is the Official Timing Sponsor of the Dubai Airshow 2023. This is the fifth consecutive time the Swiss luxury watch brand has partnered with the Dubai aviation trade event, following successful partnerships in 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021. The Airshow, which is one of the largest and most successful events of its kind in the world, will take place from the 13th to the 17th of November at Dubai World Central (DWC).
For over 130 years, Breitling has made the best possible instruments for pilots and aviators, making its longstanding partnership with Dubai Airshow a natural collaboration. Breitling manufactures its own movements in-house and the quality of every one is – like the movements in all Breitling watches – confirmed by its status as a COSC-certified chronometer, made in Switzerland. In its role as Official Timing Sponsor, Breitling demonstrates its dedication to precision and accuracy as well as its ongoing support for the aviation industry.
Breitling has three collections in its Air universe, each inspired by the brand’s pioneering aviation heritage and created for the aerial adventurers. The collections include Navitimer, known as the iconic Pilot’s watch; the Avenger – a bold and extremely robust watch that’s built for fighter pilots; and Classic Avi, inspired by Breitling’s original co-pilot watch and legendary aircraft. Together, the collections showcase an evolution of the brand’s pilot’s watches, once again confirming its status as the world’s leading manufacturer of aviation-related timepieces.
Commenting on the partnership, Aed Adwan, Managing Director, Breitling Middle East, said: ‘We are delighted to be the Official Timing Sponsor of Dubai Airshow for the fifth time. Breitling takes pride in its rich heritage and history in aviation, and the high level of precision and accuracy that Breitling’s watches offer, which make them suitable for any member in the aviation industry as well as individuals passionate about Breitling’s iconic designs. We look forward to the airshow and to engaging with aviation enthusiasts.”
Timothy Hawes, Managing Director at Tarsus F&E LLC, organisers of Dubai Airshow 2023, added: “Dubai Airshow has established itself as one of the leading and most successful airshows in the world, convening aerospace, space and defence professionals since 1989. As we prepare for our 18th edition, which will continue to showcase the transformation across all areas of the industry and identify the trends shaping its future, we are proud to continue our partnership with Breitling and welcome them back as our Official Timing Sponsor for the fifth consecutive edition.”
