IRONMAN x BREITLING
BREITLING CELEBRATES THE POWER AND STAMINA FUELING THE PHENOMENAL IRONMAN SPORTING EVENTS WITH A NEW SERIES OF LUXURY TIMEPIECES – THE ENDURANCE PRO IRONMAN
Breitling and Ironman have signed a long-term partnership and teamed up to co-design the Endurance Pro Ironman watches, a special series of Breitling’s ultimate athleisure watch. The result is a set of perfectly lightweight and lighthearted luxury sports watches combining high precision, innovative technology, and vibrant, colourful design. The launch features two exciting new watches: a red version available globally at all Breitling boutiques and retailers and at breitling.com for sports and timekeeping enthusiasts, and a black and gold piece exclusively available for Ironman race finishers. Additional models reserved for the Ironman community are planned for the coming months.
In 2019, Breitling and Ironman had already launched the highly successful Breitling Superocean Ironman Limited Edition. This new partnership kicks off a long-term collaboration with Breitling becoming the new Official Luxury Watch of Ironman.
Its 44mm watch case is made out of Breitlight, which is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, but significantly harder. This exclusive high-tech material boasts exceptional resistance to scratches, traction, and corrosion. It also stands out for its antimagnetic and anti-allergic properties, as well as its thermal stability, which gives it a warmer feel than metal.
It’s powered by the Breitling Caliber 82, a COSC-certified thermocompensated SuperQuartz™ movement that is ten times more precise than regular quartz and offers a battery life of approximately three to four years.
The bidirectional rotating bezel has engraved compass points, and the tactile molded crown provides excellent grip and maneuverability. The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova, making them legible even in limited lighting conditions. Along with a small-second subdial, there are 1/10th second and 30-minute chronograph counters that have also been designed for easy reading. The watch is water-resistant to 10 bar/100 meters/330 feet.
At present there are two versions available: Endurance Pro Ironman and Endurance Pro Ironman Finisher. The former comes with a red dial featuring a black inner bezel with a pulsometer scale. The watch is presented on a red rubber strap with a Breitlight ouble tang-type buckle. It features a unique Ironman inscription instead of the Breitling inscription. The latter – black accented with gold – is targeted at athletes who’ve completed an Ironman event. This version will be available exclusively through Ironman channels, and its caseback features a special Ironman Finisher Series engraving.
The original Endurance Pro was inspired by the Breitling Sprint, a colourful and impressively lightweight watch from the 1970s. Its pulsometer made it ideal for athletes who wanted to monitor their heart rates.
