Tougher than Steel
Breitling looked to its aeronautical and military past when designing its present collection. With only 1,000 pieces in the limited-edition series, these timepieces are not only tough to snag, they’re also just as tough to break, crafted from an exclusive high-tech material that’s much stronger than steel — but 5.8 times lighter. Available at Kirk Freeport and Breitling Boutique Grand Cayman in George Town.
