Aviation and chronograph specialist, Breitling, has been announced as the official timing partner of this year’s Dubai Airshow. This is the first time that the Swiss luxury watch brand has partnered with the Dubai aviation trade event, which is one of the largest and most successful air shows in the world, and will take place from the 8th to 12th November.
For the specialist of technical watches and a pioneer of aviation feats, the partnership with the Dubai Airshow is a natural collaboration. One of the world’s only major watch brands to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the show capitalises on Breitling’s dedication to precision.

This makes our partnership with the Dubai Airshow an obvious fit and we look forward to being part of one of the largest and most successful air shows in the world.”
Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of Dubai Airshow organisers F&E Aerospace, said: “Dubai has played a key role in the development of the aerospace industry in the Middle East and the Dubai Airshow has helped lead this change by creating a world class exhibition showcasing the latest and greatest in military, general and commercial aviation.
“As a specialist in instruments for aviation professionals, Breitling is the perfect time keeping partner for this year’s show which we are expecting to be our biggest yet, with over 1100 exhibitors and 65000 trade visitors.”
