THE REAL AVIATION WATCH

NAVITIMER 2022

This year marks the 70th anniversary of Breitling’s legendary watch, and the occasion sees a completely revamped collection featuring a striking color palette, modernized styling and unforgettable journeys.

Throughout Breitling’s 70-year history, its first aviator watch has been loved by aviators and trendsetters alike. From major celebrities to an astronaut have worn this legendary timepiece.

On this occasion, tribute is paid to this legend in the world of watchmaking.

EVOLUTION OF THE MODERN RETRO STYLE

In creating this Navitimer, its DNA has been retained with original and recognisable aspects of the icon. With its circular slide rule, baton indexes, trio of chronograph counters and notched bezel for easy handling.

This time, the watch is available in several sizes: 46, 43 and 41 mm. Two case materials: stainless steel or 18-carat red gold. Different straps: semi-gloss alligator leather or seven-row metal.

Emphasis should be placed on its colors; blue, green and copper. It is these new colors that define the new dial options. 

In addition to all these details that make you fall in love, there is a singularity that awakens nostalgia and that is the return of the AOPA wings to their initial position at 12 o’clock.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso: the tale of an icon !

Tribute Reverso JLC Lecoultre

It all began in India in 1931 after a polo match.British officers challenged their friend, alias Jaeger LeCoultre, to create a watch able to withstand the shocks of their favourite sport, polo.The Reverso was born, having since become timeless.

The legend of the Reverso continues to captivate its enthusiasts, who were rewarded with an anniversary model to commemorate the 90th anniversary of this iconic watch by Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre. The basic principle was simple: a reversible case designed to prevent the glass on wristwatches worn by British polo players in India from breaking during polo matches. The Reverso, a timepiece created in the mid-19th century, reflected the Art Deco values prevailing at the time, i.e., elegance, universalism, understated aesthetics, a combining of simple geometric shapes, an affinity for handcraftsmanship, and an enthusiasm for playing and partying. Over time, the timepiece has become increasingly more customisable, thus attracting many male and female enthusiasts.

Affiche expo Paris

From 21 October to 24 December, JaegerLeCoultre is presenting the Reverso Timeless Stories exhibit in Paris on 15 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in the 8th arrondissement. This comprehensive exhibit focusing exclusively on the Reverso watch for its 90th anniversary explores the creative and cultural universe of this modern yet timeless watch through four themes.

Did you know ?

The brand name is pronounced differently depending on the country. For example, in France they say “Jeh-jair” for Jaeger; however, Jaeger is a German word and in Germany they would say “Yeh-ger”, a pronunciation that is in fact favoured by some employees and watchmakers at the company. But in the end, it is the French pronunciation that is most widely used in public speeches. So, long live “Jeh-jair LeCoultre !”

Breitling Curtiss P40

Breitling rinde homenaje a la legendaria Curtiss P-40 Warhawk Fighter Plane con tres nuevos modelos.

Breitling, aviación y pilotos.

Durante casi todo un siglo Breitling ha gozado de una reputación mundial por sus vínculos con la aviación y sus relojes de piloto. A día de hoy, la firma suiza sigue esforzándose en esta perpetuación, y prueba de ello son los tres nuevos relojes Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhawk, un homenaje a Curtiss Wright, el prestigioso fabricante aeronáutico estadounidense, y a su avión más famoso, el Curtiss P-40 Warhawk. Los P-40 Warhawks, que se fabricaron entre 1938 y 1944, reciben ahora un majestuoso homenaje en forma de dos cronógrafos, uno de ellos con un movimiento Calibre 01 de la manufactura de Breitling, y un sugerente modelo de tres manecillas.

El Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Curtiss Warhawk se distingue por su esfera en color verde oliva con acabado mate. Las esferas internas, en contraste cromático, son contadores de cronógrafo de 12 horas y de 30 minutos, más otra esfera interna con pequeño segundero; indican que el reloj funciona con un Calibre 01 de la manufactura Breitling, un movimiento mecánico desarrollado internamente que ofrece una reserva de marcha de aproximadamente 70 horas. Albergado en una caja de acero inoxidable de 43 mm, el dorso de la caja lo forma un cristal transparente de zafiro que lleva impreso el rótulo «Curtiss» y la imagen de un P-40 Warhawk en vuelo, cuyo diseño está inspirado en las fauces de tiburón en los colores que el avión exhibía cuando era pilotado por los famosos Tigres Voladores, el Grupo de Voluntarios Estadounidenses que voló en las Fuerzas Aéreas de China.
