What Makes a Breitling Navitimer Remarkable?

The Navitimer line was invented to be practical for pilots, and this functional intent is evident in the sheer amount of complications in these marvelous watches. Most timepieces in the collection have two-pusher chronographs. The timer is located on the dial’s outer rim and has a devoted red hand, ensuring easy legibility for the wearer. Subdials at the center provide a clearer picture of the current minute and hour, as does a day/date display. The flattened slide ruler on the bezel allows the wearer to make fast calculations. Sapphire crystal glass used in every Navitimer is scratch proof and durable, furthering the piece’s longevity.

Navitimer watches are available in a myriad of styles and colors. Some pieces have a black, red, and white color scheme on the dial with a few exhibiting a classic tan and gold. There are several other options, ensuring every whim can be fulfilled. A unifying element of the collection is an eccentric round case with a rigged crown. Minimalist, non-numbered indices are an interesting, eye-catching contrast to the data-laden aesthetic of the watches’ many complications. Alligator leather straps are a luxurious, sophisticated accompaniment for the case, while stainless steel bracelets evoke a stately chic. Some pieces even have gold accents for a spectacular elegance.
