Navitimer

BREITLING NAVITIMER | The Iconic Aviation Watch
Launched: 1952 
br
The Navitimer is undoubtedly Breitling’s most famous watch. It was designed to help pilots do all their calculations with one tool – using its now iconic circular slide rule bezel. The range of numbers you see around its dial make a host of pilot-appropriate calculations possible, such as distances and air speed. This tool was necessary pre electronic calculator, but it remains useful today.Breitling is aware that not everyone (including pilots!) know how to use the slide rule bezel, so they have a dedicated slide rule tutorial on their website.Best for: professional pilots and aviation enthusiasts, cult or iconic watch collectors, and those who want an in-house Breitling movement  | VIEW COLLECTION >
