For Swiss watch brand Breitling, it doesn’t get more iconic than the Navitimer. The model has established itself as a firm favorite among pilots and the aviation-obsessed, with the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante even making the Elite Traveler list of Top 50 Watches 2017 in the Chronograph category. Now, Breitling has unveiled a limited-edition Navitimer 01 to be sold exclusively at Luxury Jewelry Resource Group retailers.
Limited to just 50 pieces total, this series of Breitling Navitimers is set apart by its modern blacksteel exterior and Stratos Gray dial. The Navitimer 01 Blacksteel LJRG Limited Edition features a satin-brushed steel case, three black counter dials and, for in-air navigation, a circular slide rule. Blacksteel hands and logo are complemented by a red chronograph sweep-seconds hand in a change from the original model, first launched in 1952.
Developed and produced in-house, the self-winding chronograph is visible through a transparent sapphire crystal caseback. Breitling debuted the first self-winding chronograph movement in 1969, and 40 years later presented the Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01, a high-performance self-winding movement entirely out of the brand’s own workshops.
