Take Flight With Two Updated Editions Of The Breitling Navitimer Pilot’s Watch

A refined update of a classic timepiece, available in a 41mm automatic or a 41mm GMT.


When a watch can stand the test of time and perform from take-off to landing (and then some), it’s worth examining what makes that watch tick. And when it comes to the Breitling Navitimer, two just-released special editions should prove their mettle handily as far as the iconic silhouette is concerned.


Billed as one of the most iconic watches on the planet, the Breitling Navitimer is among the prized few models that have helped the watchmaker blaze a trail (across the air, land and sea) across 140 years of precise timekeeping excellence.

And while recent introductions like the Breitling Avenger Collection pave a new way forward, it’s hard to top an all-time classic watch, as Breitling rightfully notes.


The Navitimer itself soars beyond its functionality as a pilot’s watch, the company said, calling it “a symbol for all those plotting their personal journeys through life.”

And between a three-hand 41mm automatic and a 41mm GMT, there are notable options for the stylish explorer or watch enthusiast in equal measure.


The GMT version notably fuses a crisp, handsome dial with a leather strap finished with contrast stitching in four different dial and strap options.

A mix of stainless steel and leather strap options deliver both sporty and dressy appeal across the line, with enough variety to please even the most discerning Breitling collector.

Each would wear nicely with a tailored suit or an Oxford shirt (or a suitably refined yet easygoing Sunspel polo, a la James Bond).


The 38-hour power reserve of the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17 movement powers the Automatic 41 edition, which blends clean lines with bold looks in a case that punches above its 41mm size.

And the 41mm GMT, with a 24-hour dial at the center of the refined yet highly functional dial, uses Breitling’s ETA-based, COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 32 movement.

Every detail has been considered, every stone has (seemingly) been overturned and Breitling appears to have once again set a new course in the world of stylish yet highly useful aviation watches. Find your new Breitling Navitimer starting at $5,300 online at the watchmaker now.
