Breitling Case Study

Breitling Modern Explorers Hero


Discovering the new age of explorers




Brand awareness


Breitling wanted to strengthen the association of the Breitling Explorer Squad with CNN's content and generate conversation around the squad.

They also wanted to drive awareness of their brand and promote its watches; specifically, the Endurance Pro, Superocean & Avenger.


CNN designed a multi-part campaign that was targeted to CNN's Luxury audience and optimised across the CNN platform. Breitling became the exclusive sponsor of CNN International’s new feature, The Modern Explorers, which examined the role of today’s breed of explorers.

This campaign brought the unique stories of three adventurers to the CNN audience across linear, digital & social pieces.
