After partnering with pro golfer Ernie Els, Breitling has collaborated with the Hall of Fame golfer to produce the Els for Autism Breitling Limited Edition Chronograph in honor of Autism Awareness Month this April. 20 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the watch will be donated to the Els for Autism Foundation, whose mission is to assist young individuals and families on the autism spectrum
The watch will be produced in a limited edition of 88 numbered pieces, in reference to the statistic that autism affects 1 in 88 children. The special version of the Chronomat 44 will have a steel case, blue dial and steel-on-steel Pilot bracelet with the Els for Autism logo etched on each caseback. Els will wear the #1 watch.
Els started the Els for Autism Foundation after his son was diagnosed with the developmental disability in 2009. In addition to his work with the Foundation, Els will host the third annual Els for Autism Golf Challenge, the largest international charity-driven amateur golf tournament in history. Breitling is one of the organizing sponsors of the tournament, and will support teams throughout the United States with its retail partners to help broaden the scope of the tournament and help raise funds for the charity.
