Navitimer 01 (46 mm) Limited Edition
The Watch Quote™ - December 8th, 2016
With its steel case framing a black and brown dial enhanced by gold-toned hands, the new Navitimer 01 (46 mm) Limited Edition proves that whatever the materials and colors, a great watchmaking classic remains just what its name implies, and that the pilot’s cult model is indeed a living legend.
Aviation has never been merely about technology. Aircraft have always been designed to be as beautiful as they possibly can be. Aerodynamic fuselages are also visually pleasing, and the world of aviation continues to exude a powerful aura of prestige.
High-performance and elegant: such is the spirit of the new Navitimer 01 (46 mm) Limited Edition chronograph, a reinterpretation of the favorite watch among aeronautical enthusiasts since 1952. This 1,000-piece steel limited series is distinguished by its exclusive black dial bearing hollowed brown counters and framed by an inner bezel in the same shade. This original aesthetic is enhanced by gold-toned hands and logo, along with a red chronograph sweep-seconds hand. The legibility of the various indications is accentuated by the highly sophisticated dial production process involving the “par épargne” technique on a solid silver base.
Although exuding a natural sense of refinement, this limited edition never loses sight of its nature as an instrument for professionals – as confirmed by its famous circular aviation slide rule and the Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), a token of superior precision and reliability. This high-performance selfwinding chronograph ‘engine’, entirely developed and produced in the Breitling workshops, is visible through a transparent sapphire crystal caseback.
Complementing its technical and elegant appearance, the new Navitimer 01 (46 mm) Limited Edition is available with a steel bracelet, a crocodile leather or leather strap, or fitted with a rubber Navitimer strap featuring an aircraft tire-tread profile.
