Coinciding with the 70th anniversary of the legendary Navitimer replica, Breitling reinterprets the classic watch with bold colors, showing extraordinary demeanor and paying tribute to a glorious journey. For 70 years, the Breitling Original Pilot’s Watch has been a favorite of pilots and fashionistas alike. Today, Breitling pays homage to this legend with a new aviation chronograph that retains classic functions while enhancing them with modern improvements. This is 2022 New Breitling Navitimer watch replica collection.
Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling, said: “We don’t use the word classic casually. The Navitimer is one of the most recognizable watches and has become a sought-after collectible. Originally used as a pilot’s instrument, now for every wearer, this watch gives a profound meaning to their life’s journey.”
To serve the needs of various customers (including women), Breitling made the correct decision to offer what is essentially the same watch in three different case sizes. It is true that some dial color configurations are only available in some sizes, but for the most part, Breitling makes sure that the 41, 43, and 46mm-wide Navitimer B01 Chronograph replica watches are more or less the same in terms of style and look. Having worn all three sizes, I would say that my personal preference is the 43mm wide version, but I would gladly wear any of them. The cases are water-resistant to 30 meters, and 13.6, 13.69, and 13.95mm thick, respectively.
The most jarring aspect of the new replica Navitimer B01 Chronograph case design is the polishing. While not always true, most recent Navitimer watches have had all-polished cases — really nice polished cases.
Breitling decided to go very commercial with the dials in terms of colors and finishing. That’s a business decision that probably makes sense, but purists will probably still be more attracted to some of the more historic-looking recent Navitimer replica watches that have more of a “tool watch” look. The various metallic colors and copious reflective surfaces test well with luxury seekers but make the new Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph replica watches quite “blingy” when compared with the classic models. Adding to that look are new colors, including two different greens (one is a fun mint), two blues, and a variety of grays, whites, and black tones mixed together. There are even 18k red-gold case options in addition to the main steel-cased versions to offer an even more high-end feel. The dials are very nice, but I prefer a more matte style to watches with this level of dial detail, and for the snazzier shiny look, I am still very much taken by Breitling’s Chronomat 42 replica masterpieces.
To create the new Navitimer, Breitling has kept the best parts of its classic design codes. From a distance, the new iteration is undoubtedly an authentic Navitimer, with a circular flying slide rule, stick indexes, three subdials and a fluted bezel for an easy grip. However, on closer inspection, its modern improvements are evident.
Breitling’s B01 automatic chronograph movement powers each of these watches and, for the first time in a replica Navitimer Chronograph piece, you can see the very nice movement through an exhibition caseback. This was designed by former Rolex engineers who worked on the chronograph movement inside the Daytona and is very accurate. Each is a COSC-certified Chronometer and operates at 4Hz with 70 hours of power reserve. The watch features the time and date (integrated into the lower subdial), as well as the 12-hour chronograph.
All of the watches are available on a brown or black alligator strap, or a matching seven-link metal bracelet (steel or gold depending on the version). The bracelet option (in steel) costs just $400 more and also features a new butterfly-style deployant clasp, a serious upgrade from the previous fold-over deployant clasps.
The new 2022 Navitimer replica collection features a variety of dial options including Emerald Green, Blue, Mint Green, Copper Silver and Black Panda, with a choice of two stainless steel or 18 karat red gold case materials and a variety of straps, and is a custom collector’s choice dream. The new 2022 replica Breitling Navitimer Collection is now available from Breitling boutiques and official online boutiques. Pricing for the Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 starts at AUD$12,490 and goes up to AUD$52,000.
