Breitling Els for Autism Limited Edition Watch Review

 

In partnership with professional golfer Ernie Els, Breitling has created a limited edition chronograph in tribute to Autism Awareness month. Part of the proceeds from the watch will be donated to Els' autism charity, the Els For Autism Foundation.

The Els for Autism Breitling Limited Edition is a special version of the Breitling Chronomat 44, with the Els for Autism logo etched on the case back. It has a blue dial and 44 mm steel case, and is limited to 88 pieces.

"Ernie Els' passion for his charity is a testament to his good nature, and one of the many reasons we're honoured to call him a friend of Breitling," said Breitling USA President Thierry Prissert. "It's humbling to be part of his cause. Hopefully the watch will help increase awareness about autism this April, and help those who need it most."


The Els for Autism Foundation was set up in 2009 after Ernie Els' son was diagnosed with the developmental disorder.
"Autism affects an estimated two million people in the United States," said Els. "We need to work together to help everyone touched by this disorder, and I'm pleased to say, as a Breitling enthusiast, that Breitling is dedicated to making a difference. The limited edition watch is a touching representation of their support."

Breitling will also sponsor the third annual Els for Autism Golf Challenge - the largest international charity-driven amateur golf tournament in history.
The Breitling Chronomat 44 is available now at Jura Watches.
