Breitling has been making us dream with the Breitling pilot’s watch for 70 years now. To celebrate this anniversary, Breitling is unveiling a more modern, younger, more colorful reinterpretation of the collection. Let’s take a look at the Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph, a true watchmaking icon that has always been on everyone’s lips.
An in-house movement for stellar performance
In addition to the perfect combination of Breitling’s heritage and new on-trend design codes, the latest Navitimers are also very precise tool watches. Indeed, all the timepieces contain a self-winding mechanical movement, the COSC-certified Manufacture Breitling 01 calibre. The movement builds up a power reserve of approximately 70 hours, making it ideal for changing watches over the weekend. It is also extremely precise, oscillating at 28,800 vibrations per hour.
A modern and retro style for the Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph
The Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph retains its look and feel by keeping the elements that have always been there: a circular slide rule, baton indexes, a trio of chronograph counters and a notched bezel. Nevertheless, it has an updated profile thanks to the flattened slide rule and domed glass. The watch has a slimmer silhouette, which enhances the view of the COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 through the transparent case back. It is available in three different sizes –41, 43 and 46 mm–, ensuring that there will be a model that is perfect for you! The case comes in a first version in stainless steel and a second version in 18-carat red gold. As for the bracelet, you can choose between a metal bracelet and an alligator strap. Meanwhile, the dial sports a palette of colours between blue, green, copper or even black and white. And the detail that makes this watch even more wonderful is the return of the winged logo of AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) at 12 o’clock. In short, the Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph features a more up-to-date look that is sure to delight all generations.
