TIME­LESS ICON

IN­SPIRED BY ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST AD­MIRED WATCH FAM­I­LIES, BRE­ITLING PRESENTS A WHOLE NEW REF­ER­ENCE FOR THE NAVITIMER 1 COL­LEC­TION

DA MAN - - Brand Story -

When it comes to the highly ex­clu­sive “strong­hold” of tech­ni­cal watches, it’s safe to say that Bre­itling has its very own place among the top pan­theon of the watch in­dus­try. As a long­stand­ing part­ner of the world of avi­a­tion, a field where re­li­a­bil­ity and pre­ci­sion play a vi­tal role, the brand has al­ways de­voted pre­mier im­por­tance to the qual­ity of its prod­ucts, de­signed to with­stand in­ten­sive use in the most try­ing con­di­tions.

This brings us to one of the brand’s most iconic prod­ucts, the Navitimer col­lec­tion. After more than 65 years since it was first launched to meet the needs of a grow­ing com­mer­cial and recre­ational avi­a­tion mar­ket, this par­tic­u­lar twen­ti­eth-cen­tury clas­sic re­mains ever pop­u­lar in to­day’s world.

New Per­son­al­ity

In­stantly rec­og­niz­able, Bre­itling’s time­less icon looks as stylish to­day as it did when it was first de­signed. Now, the Navitimer fam­ily has been ex­tended to in­clude eight new ref­er­ences in the Navitimer 1 line, whose range of sizes, dial op­tions, bracelets and straps en­sure that there is a per­fect Navitimer 1 for even the most de­mand­ing of wrists.

As part of a leg­endary watch fam­ily, the Bre­itling Navitimer has been one of the world’s most beloved chrono­graphs since its re­lease in 1952. Now, with some bril­liant ad­di­tions to its Navitimer 1 fam­ily, Bre­itling is in­tro­duc­ing a true watch­mak­ing leg­end to an en­tirely new gen­er­a­tion of fu­ture wear­ers.

Fore­most is the Navitimer 1 B01 Chrono­graph 46. With its im­pres­sive 46mm case as a bold style state­ment, this new Navitimer 1 B01 Chrono­graph 46 is com­pleted with con­trast­ing sub­di­als—the “in­verse panda” look—as an in­di­ca­tion of the ex­tra­or­di­nary move­ment in­side. Next up is the Navitimer 1 B01 Chrono­graph 43 that has been crafted in four com­pelling ver­sions. This par­tic­u­lar watch also fea­tures con­trast­ing sub-di­als like the

pre­vi­ous model. on top of that, both of them are pow­ered by the CosC-cer­ti­fied Bre­itling man­u­fac­ture Cal­iber 01.

last but not least is the Navitimer 1 Chrono­graph 41. If you’re a col­lec­tor with an eye for smaller watches, it’s safe to say that this is the one for you. dif­fer­ent to the afore­men­tioned two chrono­graphs, this watch is pow­ered by the Bre­itling Cal­iber 13 chronome­ter, which is wound au­to­mat­i­cally by a uni­lat­er­ally act­ing ball-bear­ing ro­tor and de­liv­ers a power re­serve of more than 42 hours.

Dar­ing De­sign

Fea­tur­ing aes­thetic so­phis­ti­ca­tion, a re­fined play on hol­lowed and raised sur­faces, as well as metic­u­lous fin­ish­ing, the di­als of Bre­itling’s watches speak vol­umes of mas­tery in cut­tingedge pro­duc­tion meth­ods com­bin­ing tra­di­tional skills with ul­tra-mod­ern tech­nolo­gies. each de­tail has been de­signed to en­able op­ti­mal leg­i­bil­ity at a glance, just like on an air­craft’s in­stru­ment panel.

This new mem­ber of the big fam­ily also comes with an easy-to-mas­ter avi­a­tion slide rule that has long been associated with Bre­itling’s Navitimer, which, in turn, was adopted by pi­lots and es­pe­cially fa­vored by the Air­craft own­ers and pi­lots As­so­ci­a­tion (AopA). on top of that, the brand also used newly de­signed beaded and ratch­eted bidi­rec­tional bezel, as it lends this time­piece a dis­tinctly el­e­gant look.

All in all, with its Navitimer pedi­gree, its aes­thetic bril­liance, its move­ment—which is cer­ti­fied by CosC, Con­trôle of­fi­ciel suisse des Chronomètres, the of­fi­cial swiss Chronome­ter test­ing In­sti­tute—along with its com­plete range of sizes span­ning from 41mm to 43mm and 46mm—the new Navitimer 1 fam­ily is per­fect for the gen­tle­man who prefers wrist­watches that per­form bril­liantly in any en­vi­ron­ment, with a touch of his­toric link to avi­a­tion and an un­mis­tak­able trace of Navitimer dNA as the ideal ac­ces­sory for their ad­ven­tur­ous path. 195
