Breitling’s Navitimer 01 or Air Racer collection has been specially designed for pilots and aviation aficionados. The collection promises reliability and great performance with its Breitling calibre 01 movement.
The Breitling Navitimer 01 RB012012/BA49/744P/R20D for men comes in a round, black dial. This timepiece comes with three sub-dials positioned at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock. Its Arabic numeral markers and baton style hands are white and gold in colour. The case window is made of cambered, glareproof sapphire crystal that provides a clear view of the clock face. The date window is positioned between 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock.
The 43 mm, 18 carat red gold case perfectly complements the black and gold of the dial. A winding screw is attached to the right hand side of the timepiece, flanked by the stop and start push buttons of the chronograph. The bezel of this device is bi-directional and features a slide rule, a devise used for complex calculation by pilots when flying.
A black, crocodile leather strap with a deployant, which has been meticulously tested for quality and comfort, renders the watch with contemporary style and charisma.
The self winding Breitling Navimeter 01 chronograph is definitely an eye catcher. It does not require regular winding and thus is efficient enough to become a part of your daily wardrobe. This highly advanced timepiece not only tells time but also features sub-dials for chronograph seconds, minutes and hours. It even tells the date and comes with a power reserve of 70 hours. The timepiece is water resistant to a depth of 30 meters.
Coined from the words navigator and timer, the Navitimer is one of the most legendary collections by Breitling. The birth of the Navimeter as an idea preceded its execution by decades, with the Breitling Chronomat in 1942. Willy Breitling collaborated with the mathematician Marcel Robert to design a slide rule bezel that made the calculation of complex logarithmic values possible. This led to the development of a scale that incorporated the three units necessary for aerial navigation- STAT, KM and NAUT. Pilots all over the world could now perform complicated calculations such as fuel consumption, average or climbing speeds, and so on, by using their Navitimer, which doubled as a calculator. Since its launch in 1952 till today, more than 60 years after its release, the Navimeter has undergone several changes, including an evolution from the manual Venus 178 movement in 1952 to the highly modern automatic movement in 1969, though the side rule bezel has remained a constant component. The first editions of the Navimeter 806 are today highly sought after collectibles.
With dial diameters ranging from 43-48mm, each watch from the Navimeter collection is bold and historically suited for aircraft navigators, by providing easy visibility even in poor lighting. The most distinctive feature of timepieces from this line is the aviation slide rule, perfect for complex calculations such as conversions from kilometres to nautical miles. Some newer models come with a transparent case back that allows an insight into the immaculate working of Breitling’s certified automatic movement.Though the dials are mainly traditional panda or reverse panda coloured, other hues are available for some of the more adventurous wearers. A wide variety of strap or bracelet options are also offered.
The Navimeter boasts the post of being the official time keeper for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, proving its mettle when it comes to impeccable timekeeping. The collection finds admirers in personalities from all walks of life, including the American actor and pilot John Travolta and French singer Serge Gainsbourg.
