The favourite of pilots
Soon after its launch in 1952, the Navitimer chronograph became a favorite with pilots. In addition ti its ability to measure short times, this wrist instrument is quipped with a â€œnavigation computerâ€, a circular slide rule able to handle all airborne navigation calculations, such as climbing times or fuel consumption rate, and even to convert miles into nautical miles or kilometers. This first Navitimer was officially chosen by the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association), encompassing pilots from around the world. Today, this model has lent its name to a line of original mechanical chronographs, featuring a wealth of exclusive technical features and naturally all fitted with the famous slide rule.
