The hour markers and hands are coated with Super-LumiNova, which makes it easy to read the time in the dark. The 30-minute cumulative chronograph at 3 o’clock is painted with a red mark and echoes with a red central chronograph second hand at the end, adding a touch of bright color. There is a date display window between 4 and 5 o’clock.

  In order to match the overall style of the watch, the green military strap adds a tough style to the watch, which is very suitable for those who like sports watches.

  The transparent caseback is printed with the Curtis logo and a fighter fighter pattern. This pattern is inspired by the typical coating of the fighter jets that were piloted by the American Volunteer Group and served in the prestigious Flying Tigers of the Chinese Air Force. Installed. Breitling’s own 01 movement powers the watch. This movement is certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC) and is water-resistant to 100 meters.
