Breitling Navitimer 8 B01 Chronograph 43 – Technical highlight of a legendary collection
The collection Navitimer by Breitling has enjoyed cult status for more than half a century – and this is for a good reason. As the watches that were exclusively tailored to the needs of pilots and flight navigators have not only a high recognition value but also convince by a combination of essential functions, paired with high precision, reliability and robustness. The new models with the "8" in the name have belonged to the first novelties in the model range of Breitling since the takeover of the management by Georges Kern in 2017. They were presented to the public at the Baselworld 2018 for the first time and mainly differ from the previous Navitimers because of the missing slide ruler bezel, a slightly modified brand logo where the curved "B" appears without lateral wings as well as due to a fundamentally different design with accentuated retro charm. The new aviation luxury timepieces can be understood as reminiscence to the 1930ies and 1940ies – such era where the Swiss watch brand Breitling established itself as specialist for aviation chronographs internationally. The model B01 Chronograph 43 ranks among the technical highlights of the new model line.
Equipped with an excellent manufactory calibre: The Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 by Breitling
A mere glance at the technical parameters of the B01 Chronograph 43 makes clear that it is a really extraordinary watch. The power reserve of its automatic winding is generous 70 hours and the ratchet wheel chronograph with a vertical clutch can stop up to twelve hours long accurately to the second. The excellent technical performances are the result of the own manufactory calibre B01 by Breitling that can be watched operating through the sapphire glass bottom and which was equipped with a chronometer certificate by the COSC. It can also be found in the new Breitling Premier Chronographs. The sub-dials for the stop function and the subsidiary second are placed in Tricompax arrangement; furthermore, there is a window for the date between four and five. The stainless-steel case has a diameter of 43 millimetres and is optionally combined with a silver white, blue or black dial. Luminous numerals and hands guarantee good readability also in adverse lighting conditions. The watch strap of the B01 Chronograph 43 which is waterproof up to 100 meters either consists of stainless steel or crocodile leather. By the way, alternative Navitimers with usual look with the B01 calibre can be found in the lines Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 and Chronograph 46.
