[An Neh Ma Eh Sai?]- [BREITLING]-HK(?) AirForce special ed.

Post by Ed.YEO » 10 Oct 2014 09:17

Previously... numbers of months ago... I posted a thread on the TAIWAN AirForce issue FORTIS-
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2166" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
quite interesting to know reputable makers making special editions to some other country forces to enhance their image as the ultimate tool watch to the respective profession.

Now see this...
A BREITLING specially created for HongKong AirForce!
(Hmmm... HongKong have AirForce? Need to do some look up siol... :mrgreen: )

Similar emblem is embossed on the dial at 3 o'clock.

I know Breitling is quite on about supporting military forces. have seen a few special editions for various units, even for those in the region.

I think I have seen some images before in WUS, but it seems that the special release for Military was for the European forces...
Asian forces? Hmm... have to do some googling...
