Breitling Navitimer Explored

The Breitling Navitimer Explored

When it comes to watches, Swiss watches are considered to be the best in the world and Breitling Navitimer is touted to be one of the best watches the Swiss have ever produced. Established in 1884 Breitling has been one of the pioneers in manufacturing the most innovative watches of the world. These watches not only tell the accurate time but also come with several other advanced features.

In 1952 Breitling came up with a wrist instrument which was specially designed keeping in mind the requirements of the pilots and other aeronautical professionals. Built with a circular slide rule, the Navitimer is designed in way that it can handle the minutest of airborne navigation related calculations like total distance covered, speed and fuel consumption etc. It also has the ability to convert miles or kilometers into nautical miles. Due to its accuracy and unmatched efficiency Breitling Navitimer was chosen by the coveted Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association as their official watch. This is the world's largest association of its type and chosen by an association of such repute tells the credibility of this watch.

Known to be the world's oldest mechanical chronographic watch which is in production for the last 60 years and even today, Breitling Navitimer is famous for its elegant look and it has asserted itself as the most iconic model manufactured under the flagship of Breitling.

The main models are Navitimer World, Navitimer 01, Navitimer 1461 and Navitimer Cosmonaute. Each of these models has their own specialty.

Navitimer World is a watch which stands distinguished due to its easily readable dual time zone system which is the most practical one too. A separate red tipped central hand is incorporated which provides the exact time in another part of the globe on a 24 hour scale which indicates whether it is a day or night at the relevant location. It showcases the time zone of the major cities of the world.

Navitimer 01 is most famous watch among the aviation fans and pilots due to its high performance self winding chronograph movements. The case of this watch is slightly big in terms of diameter and it is separated by its iconic black dial with a red seconds hand which adds to the depth of the watch.

Navitimer 1461 is a 1000 piece steel limited edition which is a combination of circular aviation slide rule with a leap year calendar which requires correction every four years or one in 1461 days. This is the reason why it is called Navitimer 1461. It is a hi-tech master piece which has ultra sophisticated movements in it comprising more than 450 parts. The day, date and the month are all displayed on three separate dials complemented by a aperture which is moon phased and stands out with respect to the black back ground.

Scott Carpenter orbited the earth three times on May 24th 1962 with a Navitimer on his wrist with a 24 hour graduation which informed about day and night, and it thus became the first watch to travel in space. Navitimer Cosmonaute is a model released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this feat. This watch is a limited edition one which is distinguished by its 24 hours display.

Any model of Breitling Navitimer is sure to take you by surprise with its outstanding features and facilities. It is worth every penny spent on it.
