The instrument hat has symbolized the brand since 1952
Caliber: Breitling 23 // Vibrations per hour: 28.800 // Jewels: 25
In launching the Navitimer in 1952, Breitling gave pilots a genuine wrist instrument. Ingenious and efficient, this chronograph is endowed with a built-in â€œnavigation computerâ€ a circular slide rule capable of performing all calculations a flight plan requires. The Navitimer thus became the official watch of the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association), the worldâ€™s largest grouping of pilots. In its fifty years of existence, the Navitimer has achieved cult object status, thereby joining the select circle of modern, ultra-functional and timeless objects that have made their mark on the 20th century. Since the famous â€œ806â€ model in 1952, the Navitimer has found its way through the years unchanged in both form and spirit. Continuously produced throughout this period, it is now the worldâ€™s oldest chronograph.
