Why We Love it

First released in 1954, the Breitling Navitimer has been in production longer than any other sporting chronograph. Complex yet elegant, you're bound to get lost in the dial … which probably isn't a good thing if you're using it to navigate while piloting an aircraft, but we digress... 

In the decades since its introduction, the Navitimer collection has seen countless variations that offer a wide range of design features, materials, complications and casing materials. This example, a Reference A17326, offers a 41mm stainless steel case and features a sapphire crystal, signed crown and a bi-directional internal rotating bezel displaying a slide-rule navigational scale. Its sunburst blue dial features a peripheral speed scale, applied, polished applied baton markers and luminous plots, a luminous handset, a red arrow center seconds hand and a date window at 6 o’clock.

Powered by the Breitling Calibre 17 — a modified ETA 2824-2 automatic movement — it comes paired to a stainless steel slant-link bracelet with a signed locking clasp and includes its full set of factory goodies.

There’s no mistaking the aesthetics of a Breitling Navitimer. Even without a chronograph complication, the multi-scaled dial on this Navitimer 41 Date offers a load of history and style!

Brand Story

+
Breitling, one of the most illustrious names in the annals of the “tool watch,” was founded by Léon Breitling in 1892. And though the firm is no longer operated by its namesake family, it still produces some of the world’s best pilot’s watches, many of which now feature in-house movements.

The company first started manufacturing wrist chronographs as early as the 1930s. In 1936 they became an official supplier to military forces of the United Kingdom and Canada. While perhaps best known for the Navitimer and Chronomat lines — which were used heavily by pilots of many nations — Breitling also produced scores of other chronograph models that merit consideration, such as the more affordable Top Time and Premier. Dive watches, such as the Super Ocean, are also part of the company’s offerings.

The late 1970s was a turbulent time for the Swiss watch industry, and many storied houses were swept away by the Quartz Crisis. By 1978, Breitling was in trouble due to the illness of its leader, Willy Breitling, and the steep decline in sales that had cut through the entire industry. Unable to keep operations going, the company was liquidated, and parts, toolings and naming rights were sold off.
Between 1979 and 2017, Breitling continued under the ownership of the Schneider family. In 2017 an 80% stake in the firm was sold to a British private equity firm, with the remaining 20% sold in 2018. In 2019, the company released the caliber B01, an in-house, automatic chronograph movement that’s since found its way into the Chronomat and Navitimer collections, bringing the tale of this famed manufacturer full circle.
