Upon its launch in 2018, Breitling fans immediately noticed the absence of the chronograph function on the Navitimer 1 Automatic. It was also introduced in a midsized 38mm case. Clearly, it was created as an everyday watch with mass market appeal.
While there is no chronograph, Breitling included the iconic slide rule bezel and affectionate nods to two vintage Navitimers. The rice bead-style bezel was inspired by the Navitimer ref 806, while the clean three-hand dial is a reference to the Navitimer ref 66.
Baton hour markers and strategically placed red details on the index markers and seconds hand make for a sleek look.
