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 stopped time is recorded and, when the same but­ton is pressed, the hand catches up with the run­ning hand. 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.
