Breitling Navitimer Chronograph 41 Ref. A13324121C1X1

$6,200

New Breitling 41mm Navitimer Chronograph Blue Dial, Black Calfskin Leather Strap, Ref. A13324121C1X1

A tribute to the original Navitimer, this version is smaller in diameter with a blue dial and counters as well as the iconic circular slide rule with bidirectional rotating bezel. This stainless steel chronograph is powered by a COSC certified self-winding chronometer.  The Navitimer is a classic that defines what it means to be an aviation watch. The slide-rule bezel used in combination with the chronograph can measure average speed, fuel consumption and many more vital calculations. While the Navitimer is suited for people with a need for precise measurements, it is particularly attractive to anyone who admires the history of chronographs and fine watchmaking.

Description

The modern chronograph watch would not function as it does today without Breitling’s influence. Leon Breitling founded the company in 1884 already manufacturing innovative chronographs. After his death in 1914, his son Gaston took control and produced one of the world’s first wrist chronographs with a separate pusher. Gaston’s son Willy introduced the two-pusher chronograph and the iconic Chronomat in 1942, which added a slide rule with a chronograph. In 1952 they produced the Navitimer with a built-in slide rule that became the official pilot’s watch for the AOPA pilot union. Astronaut Scott Carpenter found his Navitimer so useful that he asked Breitling to modify the watch to use a 24-hour dial, which he then wore into space in 1962 aboard a Mercury capsule. To celebrate his 25th anniversary as head of the company, Willy also introduced the SuperOcean diver’s watch with a water-resistance of 200 meters. Clearly, any admirer of chronographs should become familiar with Breitling. In recent years, Breitling is returning to its heritage of producing in-house movements and a design that pays tribute to its heritage but with a modern ascetic.
