Breitling Marks its 125th Anniversary with New Navitimer

Feb 09, 2009
To celebrate its 125th anniversary, Breitling has created a limited edition model of its legendary Navitimer Chronograph. The timepiece has inherited the slide rule bezel to be used for performing a wide range of calculations. The new Navitimer is to be unveiled at Baselworld 2009.

The Breitling Navitimer 125th Anniversary watch features the distinctive elements of the classic pilot's models of the brand, including a two-counter chronograph and a highly masculine "Air Racer" bracelet.

The case of the new Breitling watch is crafted from stainless steel or 18K red gold. To provide maximum legibility, the dial is protected by a curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The stainless steel version of the watch reveals a black or bronze dial, while the red gold one reveals a black or silver dial. The dial is completed with polished applied baton indexes.

The Breitling Navitimer watch accommodates the Breitling 26 Caliber, a self-winding mechanical movement. The remarkable precision of the movement is guaranteed by COSC certification given after subjecting the watch to 15 days of precision tests. The movement operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The chronograph function allows to record independent time intervals to within 1/8 second. The small date window is found at 6 oclock. The date is adjusted with help of the crown. The movement gives an advantage of a 42-hour power-reserve.

The Breitling Navitimer 125th Anniversary watch will be available in a limited edition of 2,009 pieces in stainless steel, and 125 pieces in red gold. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.

Breitling is famous worldwide as "official supplier to world aviation." The original Breitling Navitimer watch was unveiled in 1952 and in no time became a true iconic object. The Navitimer range reflects the brands devotion to its rich history closely connected to the field of aviation and deep passion for creating precision chronographs offering supreme functionality.
