History
The history of the renowned institution dates back to 1884, when it was established by Leon Breitling, in Switzerland. Ever since its inception, it has been associated with aviators across the globe. With the world wars, there was a rapid increase in the number of fliers; hence, a timepiece to cater to them was a necessity. Since then, it has reached several milestones, for instance, it became the official supplier to the Royal Air Force. Over the last century, a myriad of new techniques have been developed to suit the changing needs of the time. The company is known for its futuristic designs incorporated with the most sophisticated techniques, making it a global phenomenon in the field of watch making.

Design
The sleek metallic design, of the Breitling Navimeter 1 AB012012/BB02/447A, has been exclusively created for men. The silver steel case measures 43mm in diameter, and features a bidirectional rotating bezel. The case is embellished with cambered sapphire crystal, which is glare proof on both sides, thus ensuring excellent sunlight legibility. Smaller circular silver windows, along with a date display window between 4 and 5 o’clock position, are impeccably placed on the black dial.
This watch comes with a beautiful stainless steel bracelet, with a deployment clasp, to provide maximum comfort to the wearer.

Features
The bidirectional, ratcheted rotating bezel ensures a smooth handling of the circular aviation slide rule. The crown is non-screw locked with two gaskets. Characterised by self winding mechanical movement, Breitling Caliber 01, the watch is an epitome of horological precision. A high frequency of 28,000 vibrations per hour, and the chronograph functioning up to 1/4th second, makes this piece re-assert why Breitling is a resplendent face in the art of watch making. In addition to all these brilliant features, the watch is also water resistant up to 30m, making it fit for daily activities, while embodying an elegant look.

 

History
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.


Features
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.


Associations
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.

A classic pilot watch that has a really strong history. A timeless timepiece with a distinctive pedigree and a strong brand. The Breitling Navitimer 01 is the first Navitimer with the in-house Breitling B01 movement. Granted no one in today's day and age is going to buy this exceptional standout watch to use the standard Breitling slide-rule and chronograph function, but it is still something that makes you feel well prepared for that odd day (considering you learn how to use it first). The brand's anchored B-winged logo as always makes this special.
