Breitling Navitimer 8 Chronograph 43 – sportive men's watch with a legendary name
The name Navitimer is inseparable from the history of Breitling and nearly no other watch model has that much advanced to become the icon of the brand like this legendary navigation chronograph. For more than half a century, the precision instruments with the distinctive slide rule scales at the edge of the dial have their permanent place in the Breitling collection and for many aviation enthusiasts, they are the probably most beautiful and at the same time the most functional pilot watches per se. Since 2018, the Navitimer, however, is also in several new versions which could equally be regarded as a break with tradition and also as a heritage. On the one hand, these new luxury timepieces are missing some features which have always been characteristic for the line. They don't have a slide ruler function anymore and the brand logo is without the two big wings on the sides which were traditionally flanking the "B". Moreover, their design invokes style elements from the 1930ies and thus from a time that was significantly before the market launch of the first Navitimer. This may seem confusing at first but quickly becomes a conclusive picture when looking at the history of Breitling. Since before the manufactory from Grenchen was able to successfully launch its legendary watch it was busy with the development of boarding instruments, wristwatches and chronographs for pilots and flight navigators for many years. The "8" in the name of the new models is referring to the description of the department called "Huit Aviation" that was specifically developed for it.
