PAY­ING TRIB­UTE TO ITS his­tory, Breitling has rein­tro­duced the iconic Navitimer in an ex­clu­sive 1,884-piece limited se­ries, pay­ing homage to the brand’s found­ing in 1884.

Named the Navitimer 1884, the watch em­bod­ies clas­sic el­e­ments of the original model in­clud­ing the fa­mous 1952 avi­a­tion slide rule with a cal­en­dar fea­tur­ing a pointer-type date dis­play and twin day/ month aper­tures for which the brand was renowned in the 1940s. The model has also been re­vamped for the mod­ern day, stand­ing out with a 46 mm case which ac­cen­tu­ates the de­sign and op­ti­mizes dial read­abil­ity.

Com­ment­ing on the model’s ar­rival in the re­gion, Aed Ad­wan, Breitling Mid­dle East said: “1884 first and fore­most marks the year that Breitling was founded by Léon Breitling, an avid devo­tee of chrono­graphs and pre­ci­sion in­stru­ments. We are pay­ing trib­ute to this mo­men­tous year with the in­tro­duc­tion of the Navitimer 1884, a limited se­ries of the fa­mous Navitimer which per­fectly sums up Breitling’s vo­ca­tion and pas­sion.”

The Navitimer re­turns to the Mid­dle East with a tech­ni­cal and pow­er­ful de­sign, with an all-black dial made us­ing the “par épagne” tech­nique on a solid sil­ver base bright­ened with red ac­cents.
