Breitling’s “wings” are back! In 2018, Breitling changed the brand logo from the anchor double-wing logo to a capital B. Many watch fans felt sorry; in 2022, on the 70th anniversary of Navitimer, Breitling brought the signature “wings” back to the dial of the watch, with Navitimer The positioning of the flight table can be said to be more suitable! The new model has three watch diameters of 46, 43 and 41 mm, and each size has a rich dial color to choose from, including the classic black surface, and sometimes the most popular ice blue surface, salmon surface.
For 70 years, the Breitling Original Pilot’s Watch has been highly favored by pilots and fashionistas alike. Wearing this watch from astronauts to Earth superstars, it is Breitling’s most iconic timepiece. Today, Breitling has launched a tribute to the legendary watch – the new Navitimer aviation chronograph not only captures the most classic features of the original, but also improves and improves the watch through modern improvements.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern said: “We don’t use the word ‘masterpiece’ lightly. The Navitimer is one of the most recognizable watches of all time. One of the most remarkable watches in collectors’ history You can also see the name of this watch. Originally designed as a tool for pilots, this timepiece is now meaningful to all who have owned it on the journey of life.”
Even the watch designers did not expect the Navitimer to become so popular. In 1952, Willy Breitling, the third generation of the Breitling family, developed a chronograph cheap watch with a circular flying slide that allows pilots to perform all necessary flight calculations. Two years later, the Association of Airline Operators and Pilots (AOPA), the world’s largest pilot club, announced the adoption of the design as its official timepiece. The winged logo of the association is printed at the 12 o’clock position, and the “navigation timer” (Navitimer) came into being.
When creating the new Navitimer, Breitling retained some of the most recognizable elements of its masterpiece. Equipped with a circular flying slider, graduated hour markers, three chronograph sub-dials and a grooved bezel for easy grip, the watch looks unmistakably a Navitimer at first glance. A closer look reveals a modern sophistication. The watch is available in 46, 43 or 41 mm and other sizes, stainless steel or 18K red gold two case materials and different straps (semi-gloss alligator leather or seven-row metal bracelet) to choose from. The new dial options feature modern shades of blue, green and salmon face. If there is one feature that is bound to evoke nostalgia, it is the return of the AOPA wing logo to the 12 o’clock position.
The flying slide rule and the curved crystal make the watch more refined. Polished and brushed finishes give metallic elements a radiant yet understated feel. The transparent caseback for better visibility and the slimmer profile on the oscillating weight allow a clear view of the Breitling self-made B01 movement certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC). The movement is backed by a five-year warranty, provides a power reserve of approximately 70 hours, and the date display window is located on a low-profile sub-dial, allowing the wearer to adjust the date at any time.
Today, 70 years later, the Navitimer is no longer a tool used by pilots to navigate, it has become a symbol of those who are good at planning the journey of life for themselves. Breitling cheap celebrates this significance in its new campaign “NAVITIMER—FOR THE JOURNEY” featuring basketball superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Misty Copeland ) and the Navitimer Squadron of aviation pioneer and explorer Bertrand Piccard.
