18 August 2023
The IRONMAN triathlon is a beacon of unyielding determination in the heart-pounding world of extreme sports and triumphant human achievement. A grueling test of endurance, resilience, and personal strength, the IRONMAN event captures the essence of pushing past boundaries and embracing the extraordinary. To commemorate this incredible journey, Breitling, the renowned Swiss watchmaker, has again joined hands with IRONMAN, releasing two limited-edition IRONMAN-branded versions of their iconic ultralight sports watch, the Endurance Pro. These exceptional timepieces not only exude style but also carry the spirit of those who dare to chase their dreams, defying odds and conquering challenges on their way to glory.
Breitling’s Endurance Pro IRONMAN collection has captured the hearts of athletes and enthusiasts alike since its inception. As the 2023 IRONMAN World Championship and IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship loom on the horizon, Breitling introduces two new limited-edition models that celebrate the essence of each race.
