Luxury watch manufacturer Breitling is celebrating an aviation icon with its Breitling Super Constellation watch. The Bretiling Super Constellation is a limited-edition timepiece inspired by the Lockheed Super Constellation plane built from 1943 to 1958.

The Lockheed Super Constellation was a massive airplane with four propellers and a unique triple tail. Out of the 856 ever built, only three remain in flying condition, with one of those three being owned by Breitling.

The Breitling Super Constellation watch is sophisticated and stylish, featuring an engraving of the Super Constellation on its underside and the specifications of the plane engraved above it. Only 1,049 of these watches are set to be made, with all proceeds from their sales going towards the Super Constellations Flyers Association.
