It was the 21st March 1999, most of our readers may recall, when Brian Jones and Bertrand Piccard successfully landed their hot-balloon on desert area in Egypt. They accomplished the prodigy of completing the journey around the world.

Therefore, Breitling presented at Baselworld the "Cockpit B50 Orbiter Limited Edition". 213 pieces manufactured to symbolise the date of the landing (21/3), the Breitling Orbiter 3 is presented with orange dial on rubber strap of the same colour, equipped with SuperQuartz™ movement that is ten times more accurate than standard quartz.
