Breitling Navitimer Caliber 01

       Internationally known among the enthusiast watch-connoisseurs worldwide, Breitling is one of the most prestigious Swiss watch-making powerhouses, which started its existence during the second half of the 19th century, and built its reputation as the official supplier to world aviation, due to creating amazing timepieces, which merge a bold sporty design with an unmatched level of time-keeping accuracy and reliability.

       Over the years, the brand developed its highly personal life-guiding philosophy and traditions, and never ceased to produce exceptional chronograph models, which masterfully intertwine sublime functionality, mechanical sophistication and outstanding sporty design.

       Recently, Breitling released a remarkable new addition of its iconic Navitimer Watch Collection, produced in a limited edition of 200 red gold, and 2000 stainless steel pieces. The model is slightly larger than the other Navitimer interpretations, and incorporates an exhibition case-back, which allows a curious connoisseur eye to peek at the nicely decorated movement that animates the timepiece.

       The model features a robust round case, measuring 43 mm in diameter, which demonstrates a stylish satin-polished finish and which incorporates a fluted bezel and crown, chronograph push pieces and which ensures 30-meteter water resistance.

       The case of the new Navitimer Caliber 01 watch, 43mm in diameter, is sculptured in 18K rose gold or stainless steel. The case construction incorporates an antireflective-coated sapphire crystal and a sapphire display back. It is 30-meter water-resistant.

       Moreover, the timepiece features a dynamic sporty black dial, fitted with applied hour indices and sward-shaped hands, with luminescent inserts, for optimal time-legibility accented with white chronograph counters for 30-minutes, 12-hours, and 60-seconds, located at 3, 6, respectively at 9 o’clock positions. Moreover, the model, also displays a date complication, located between 4 and 5 o’clock positions.

       Especially designed to be a reliable timekeeping companion for a modern man, with an active life-style, the stylish Navitimer Caliber 01 watch, accommodates an ultra-sophisticated in house chronograph movement, the brand’s legendary Caliber 1, which is actually the very first one entirely developed and produced by the brand.

       Moreover, we ought to specify, that this in house self-winding mechanism received a COSC chronometer certification, and that it incorporates 47 jewels, and oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour, providing thus the lengthily 70-hours power reserve.

       The timepiece is secured to the wrist with an elegant black leather strap, with accenting white stitching, and, as far as the price tag is concerned, we cannot yet publish an exact figure, however we expect it will be somewhere around $1,500.00.
