The Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Mosquito honors the De Havilland Mosquito, a British aircraft whose lightweight wooden construction made it one of the fastest planes in the skies during World War II. Mostly made of wood, the De Havilland Mosquito was a British aircraft that served in a variety of roles. Built between 1940 and 1950, the so-called â€œWooden Wonderâ€ was one of the fastest planes in the world â€“ in fact, thanks to the wooden construction, it flew 20 mph faster than the famous Spitfire, which was equipped with the same engine. The Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Mosquito is powered by the in-house Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 movement and features a brushed DLC-coated stainless-steel bezel with white numerals and a black dial with contrasting silver chronograph counters. The eye-catching red and orange accents recall the military roundels and markings featured on the fuselage of the De Havilland Mosquito and add to the watchâ€™s allure. The De Havilland Mosquito played a key role in the history of aviation and Breitling is proud to commemorate a true legend of flight with the Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Mosquito.
