The Breitling DC-3 will be the oldest aircraft to circumnavigate the world when she completes her journey by this year end. She started this round the world trip on March 9, 2017, her 77th birthday! Her maiden voyage was made on March 9, 1940 carrying the American Airlines livery. And this round the world trip will see her flying some 210 hours in flight, and will take 6 months. She will fly to 28 countries and will be set to complete this epic journey by the end of this year. To commemorate this epic trip, Breitling will release a special limited edition Navitimer with the DC-3 engraved on the case back. The series will be limited to 500 pieces, and the DC-3 will carry the entire collection on board on the entire trip, so the watches will also have covered the same round the world trip.
