Breitling Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition in Collaboration with MR PORTER Swiss Watches

Created in collaboration with MR PORTER, one of their major partners that sells all things luxury, the new Breitling Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 is limited to just 1000 pieces, packs a great in-house chronograph caliber, and, as real estate agents like to say, is priced to sell in a market over-saturated with equally elegant pilot's watches produced by well-established brands like Omega and IWC.


Breitling Navitimer 01 Panamerican Limited Edition Swiss Watches

While I seriously doubt that this fresh Breitling Navitimer 01 Panamerican will manage to stun you with originality of industrial design (we have seen this shape many times before) or some rare complication (it is nothing more than a mere chronograph with date, albeit COSC-certified), the wristwatch may nevertheless be welcomed by those who always wanted a shiny new Navitimer powered by their recently introduced Caliber 01 in-house chronograph movement, but never liked the color combinations that were on offer. Combined with milky white counters, this gorgeous anodized brown dial that the Swiss brand prefers to call "Panamerican Bronze," looks absolutely killer to me.


Breitling Navitimer Blue Sky Limited Edition 60th Anniversary Automatic Chronograph Swiss Watches

First presented in 1952 as a professional navigation instrument for pilots, the Breitling Navitimer collection of ultra-luxury pilot's watches has long since transformed into a luxury timekeeper, which is only rarely used to measure average speed or fuel consumption of the aircraft. However, the watch remains to be one of the brand's flagships and, being powered by their first in-house Caliber B01 movement, offers an impressive combination of functionality, readability and high build quality. Prepare to love the new limited edition Breitling Navitimer Blue Sky 60th Anniversary automatic chronograph!


Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Hand-Wound Chronometer Swiss Watches

It looks like a pretty nice reissue is coming our way. The Swiss watchmaker Breitling, a company that is as deeply rooted into the exciting world of aviation and space exploration as its archrival Omega, will soon start selling its new take on the historic Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute hand-wound watch. Powered by their relatively new Breitling caliber 02 manufacture-made movement, the limited edition pilot's watch will be almost identical to the original: the world's first chronograph that orbited Earth back in 1962.


Breitling Navitimer Super Constellation Limited Edition Swiss Watches

With its new Breitling Navitimer Super Constellation (ref. A23322U7/BB20) automatic watch, which is limited to only 1049 pieces, the Swiss watchmaker supports a local foundation that keeps flight-worthy the legendary N73544 Lokheed C-121C Super Constellation air plane. The aircraft is based in Basel, Switzerland and flies with the famous "B" on its signature triple tail.


Breitling Navitimer Caliber 01 Limited Edition Swiss Watches

As the name implies, the new (or, rather, upgraded) Breitling Navitimer Caliber 01 Limited Edition automatic watch has undergone a complicated heart transplant procedure with its mass-produced ETA-based B26 movement changed in favor of their latest Caliber B01 totally in-house job. Visually, however, this is still the same good old Navitimer that hundreds of thousands of watch enthusiasts love so much.


Breitling Navitimer 125th Anniversary chronograph Swiss Watches

The new Breitling Navitimer 125th Anniversary automatic chronograph watch successfully mixes the brand's signature bold styling with the legendary slide-rule bezel in a surprisingly compact 43 mm stainless steel case. Although I find some of its design elements puzzling to say the least (I am talking mostly about the "unique" Air Racer bracelet that, to my eyes, looks here like a set of polished 22-inch light alloy rims on a 1946 Cadillac Series 62 coupe: they do the job, but make an awkward impression), with the bracelet replaced for something more adequate the gadget will be a crown jewel in any collection of pilot's watches.
