After snapping Natalie Portman on the red carpet to kick off TIFF, it was a short walk around the corner over to Shangri-La Hotel for an intimate Birks X Breitling champagne reception.

As part of the Breitling Jet Team’s American Tour I was lucky to have been invited to mingle with the talented Breitling Jet team over the Labour Day weekend during the CNE Air Show so it was great to see them again, this time with the amazing Canadian Snowbirds.

To commemorate the tour, Breitling introduces the “Breitling Chronomat 44 Jet Team American Tour” timepiece, what a long name!

Distinct features include the Breitling Jet Team logo on the dial and the Breitling Jet Team American Tour logo in vibrant color with the limited edition numbering on the caseback. Equipped with Breitling’s in-house chronometer-certified Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01, giving it water resistance to a depth of 500 m.

Each timepiece is accompanied by a limited edition commemorative Breitling Jet Team American Tour coin.
