The Croatian capital Zagreb will be the first stop on the world tour of the cult Douglas DC-3 plane from the Breitling watchmaker which is celebrating its 77th birthday.
The Douglas DC-3 will perform a round the world trip between March and September this year, as it promotes the new special edition of its ‘Navitimer’ watch, which has a close connection with aviation.
The new ‘Navitimer’ will be launched in October, with only 500 watches being released. Each will be accompanied by a certificate signed by the aircraft commande.
The round the world trip will end at the ‘Breitling Sion Airshow 2017’ back in Switzerland in October.
This DC-3 HB-IRJ was delivered to American Airlines in 1940 and first used by the American military between 1942 and 1944, before resuming service on behalf of various commercial airlines. Restored by a group of dedicated enthusiasts, it now flies under Breitling colors and participates in a variety of airshows.
