Navitimer: the legendary pilot’s watch collection was launched in 1952 and for more than 65 years, the Navitimer has retained its status as one of the world’s true iconic watches.
The Navitimer is named after the Breitling department responsible for producing its cockpit timers and early pilot’s wristwatches, these Breitling pilot watches have distinguished themselves for decades.
The Navitimer 8 is a nice addition to the original Navitimer 1, and aims to appeal to those who might not traditionally have considered a Breitling watch. Most signature design elements remain the same: the rotating or notched bezel, triangular pointer, dial font, and skeletonized hour and minute hands.
