About Breitling Navitimer 8 Watches

+
Breitling watches have always been a symbol of functional superiority and ecstatic appearance. The brand’s reputation as a quality watchmaker precedes it. Breitling introduced the Navitimer line of watches back in the 1950s. The first watch in the collection saw the light in 1952 as a successor to the earlier popular Chronomat timepiece. The watch consisted of a slide rule bezel that made it a superstar among pilots and mathematicians alike. The case was solid and the leather straps were rugged. Over a period of decades, this watch has evolved in many ways. Back in the day, it used a Venus 178 movement, while some editions also utilized the Valjoux 72.

The Breitling Navitimer 8 collection was launched in 2018 under the brand's new leadership of Georges Kern. The collection pays homage to vintage aviation timepieces that excelled in both the functional and aesthetic realms. Guy Bove, the newly appointed creative director pointed out that the collection is more like a much-anticipated prequel to the Navitimer 01. The chronograph feature is well intact, while the slide rule bezel is nowhere to be seen in this timepiece. The shorter lugs and 43mm case sure do add a sporty vibe to the watch. The inverse panda dial and railroad-style time markers, on the other hand, do provide a vintage appearance.
