Navitimer Anniversary Limited Series Bows From Breitling

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

In celebrating its 125th anniversary, Breitling is reaffirming its passion for chronographs more powerfully than ever, by reminding people of the key role the brand has played in developing this type of instruments. But the history of Breitling is also closely intertwined with that of aviation, thanks to the cockpit instruments and pilots’ chronographs that have made the company the “official supplier to world aviation”.

The most famous of these instruments for professionals is undoubtedly the legendary Navitimer chronograph, with its circular slide rule designed to compute all airborne navigation calculations.

The Navitimer “125e Anniversaire” is a highly distinctive version of this cult-object, specially designed by Breitling to mark the company&rsquos five quarter-centuries.

This limited edition of 2,009 pieces is distinguished by a particularly understated and dynamic aesthetic.

The steel case featuring alternating satin-brushed and polished surfaces is teamed with a highly original new bracelet called Air Racer – a rigid perforated wristband that pays tribute to a 1960s modern design icon.

The Navitimer “125e Anniversaire” is equipped with an exclusive movement, Breitling Caliber 26. This selfwinding 38-jewel chronograph, chronometer-certified by the COSC, is distinguished by its 60-minute totalizer, positioned in the dial center for optimal readability. The watch is also available in a red gold version, likewise fitted with the Air Racer bracelet.
