Breitling Navitimer 1 New References – Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 46, Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 and Navitimer 1 Chronograph 41

Producing since 1952, Navitimer is arguably the most iconic of all Breitling wristwatches. This year, Breitling expands their Navitimer 1 family by presenting eight new references with different range of sizes, dial options, bracelets, and straps.

Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 46
The Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 46 boasts an impressive 46 millimeter 18 k red gold case. It is available in two configurations: one with an anthracite dial and a black alligator leather strap, and another with a silver dial and a brown leather strap.

The watches are equipped with Breitling’s legendary bidirectional rotating bezel with a circular slide rule. The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, which makes them easy to read in all lighting conditions.

Both interpretations of the Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 46 have contrasting subdials (the “inverse panda look”), an indication of the extraordinary movement inside. They are powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, an automatic movement that delivers a power reserve of more than 70 hours. These COSC certified chronometers feature transparent sapphire casebacks.
