Breitling launched its famous Navitimer Collection in the 1950’s and even today this watch range remains one of the most popular of Brietling's collections. In 2012, the collection celebrated its 50th anniversary.
The Breitling Navitimer World Travel H2432212/B928/757P/H20D.1 for men sports a round, black dial with Baton style hands in gold. A date display is placed at 3 o’clock and the three sub-dials are positioned at 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock respectively. The case window is made of cambered, glareproof sapphire crystal which provides a clear view of the dial.
An 18 carat gold, 43 mm case is mounted by a bi-directional bezel that features a slide rule. This tool is useful for pilots in solving complex calculations while flying. A winding screw is attached to the side of the case. Its lock feature protects the timepiece against faulty winding. Two push buttons to control the stopwatch mechanism are flanked on either side of the screw. The brown, crocodile strap with white finishing adds to the masculine grace of this timekeeper. A deployment clasp enables safe fastening of the device to your wrist.
With a Breitling caliber 24 movement, this self winding, mechanical chronograph tells time with absolute military precision. It has a power reserve of 42 hours and beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour. Being water resistant to a depth of 30 meters the timepiece is safe against minor water splashes.
The Breitling Navitimer World Travel has been named so because it features two timezones. This timepiece features a red-tipped additional central hand that tells you time in another part of the world. The case back is also imprinted with time zones of the world’s important cities.
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.
