Breitling and Sublime by BOSCO celebrated Fedor Konyukhov’s world record


Inspired by the first balloon flight of Breitling Orbiter 3, which made the first round the world trip in 1999, Fedor decided to repeat this feat in almost 20 years. On July 23rd of this year, he set an absolute world record for balloon, making the round the world flight in the record time of 11 days 5 hours 11 minutes or 269 hours & 11 minutes at the first attempt.
Breitling acted as the "Official Timekeeper" of the Fedor’s flight, providing it with Emergency Night Mission watch.
Breitling has introduced two limited series of special watches in honor of the event. Discover Chronomat 44 GMT and Colt Chronograph Automatic, issued in the amount of 50 pieces each.
BOSCO DI CILIEGI guests & customers had the opportunity to personally communicate with Fedor Konyukhov, purchase his new book and get the autograph.
Fedor Konyukhov donated the part of "Morton" balloon with autograph in honor of the "World records with Breitling" event. It can be seen within the Breitling Emergency watches’ set-out at the second GUM line which runs until the end of September.
Fedor Konyukhov:
- It is not for nothing that we gathered at Breitling corner. It is very romantic company. They actively supported the first flight around the world in a balloon “Breitling Orbiter-3", which was made by the Swiss Bertrand Piccard and Englishman Brian Jones in 1999. That is why we also reached out to Breitling when I had the idea to make such a flight.
