After posting a couple of teasers on the official social media channel, Buy Breitling watch launched the new Breitling Navitimer 8 collection in various models. Today’s Navitimer 8 collection is praised not only by Navitimer being loved like its reliable movements and men but also its rich heritage. Busy dial does not seem to play a role in this new vintage style spin. Navitimer. The new Breitling Georges Kahn message is a decision to withdraw the wing B logo of Breitling of the old simple B logo. This new collection consists of five clocks of Navitimer 8 B01. Navitimer 8 Unitime; Navitimer 8 chronograph Navitimer 8 days & dates; Navitimer 8 Automatic. What is worth noting is that it is encouraging here that three of the five Navitimer 8 watches are not chronographs. Was this just a new collection?
Navitimer 8 was named after replica Breitling watch “Huit Aviation” division and Breitling specialized in the design and manufacture of military cockpit equipment and “wrist chronograph” in 1938. These included a cockpit instrument with an 8-day power reserve, as well as many chronograph watches with various sizes and complexities to accommodate World War II pilots.
We have seen many new Navitimer models over the years, but some have gone quite grandly from the original ones. The original replica Breitling Navitimer watch was released with pilot in mind in the early 1950’s. Breitling has improved the Chronomat model with the famous “Slide Rule Bezel”, which features the pilot to be considered a “navigation computer” that can track speed, fuel consumption, conversion rate, climbing rate. It can argue that the original of the 1950s had a seriously busy dial (and should do so in reality). The new Navitimer 8 collection creates a refreshing and modern appearance while greatly coloring the original concept. If there is something to say about Navitimer 8, it may improve all readability and prove a fantastic first real addition to the Breitling catalog under the new CEO, Georges Kern.
Let’s start the collection which revealed the movement of our own Copy Breitling watches Caliber B01 with power reserve of 70 hours including Navitimer 8 B01. Navitimer 8 B 01 with a reasonable width of 43 mm and a thickness of 13.97 mm removes the remaining Slide Rule Bezel and provides a 30 minute counter, 12 hour counter, date window. Slide Rule Bezel is likely to forbade many people (including myself) to consider adding Navitimer to their collection, but Chronomat and Avenger aggressive macho Style
Therefore, this Georges Kern’s special is bound to please many vintage design enthusiasts scared by contemporary Breitlings. My first take? It is looking cool if you are a little safe in design. There are many things how the execution and watch feels in the metal. A fine finish of case, hand, dial, bracelet may be a challenge from a brand like IWC (why?). One thing I have to say is that changing the orientation of the date window, hour number, minute number in the same area means knocking on the building block. I have a hard time looking at it.
