EVERY SECOND COUNTS BREITLING
True watch collectors appreciate the complexity of the split-second chronograph and the expertise behind the complication. The Navitimer Rattrapante features Breitling’s proprietary B03 splitsecond chronograph movement. Two superimposed chronograph second hands run together, but one can be stopped at the touch of a button while the other continues to run.

The Navitimer collection dates back 65 years, and the 2017 model is 45mm and made in steel, plus there’s a 250-piece limited edition in red gold with a seethrough case back.
