Breitling Navitimer 1952 Special Edition

Breitling's 50th Anniversary



Caliber: Breitling 41 // Vibrations per hour: 28.800 // Jewels:  38


In its fifty years of existence, the Navitimer has acquired cult-object status, joining a select circle of modern, ultra-functional and timeless objects that made their mark on the 20th century. The Navitimer’s form, spirit and essence have remained unaltered since the first model in 1952, the famous “806”. It is currently the world’s oldest chronograph in uninterrupted production. To celebrate this 50th anniversary Breitling has chosen to issue a special version carrying the original emblem of the era consisting of two stylized planes, the graphic design which Breitling traditionally reserved for this model. The integrity of the Navitimer has been scrupulously respected, notably including the slide rule for which this model became famous and which faithfully replicates the logarithmic scales and graduations of the first models. The chronograph counters are arranged in their original configuration at three, six and nine o’clock and the steel case in entirely satin-brushed.

Breitling Navitimer 1952 Quantieme Perpetuel

50 years of tradition


Caliber: Breitling 29 // Vibrations per hour: 28.800 // Jewels: 38


To mark the 50th anniversary of the Navitimer, the brand’s emblematic moel, Breitling has released a limited series of a Perpetual Calendar chronograph (QP), a Grande Complication instrument composed of close to 500 parts. This mechanical masterpiece indicates the day, date, week, month, season, leap year and moon phase, with no need for adjustment. No less than thirteen hands and pointers are required to display all this information. Reserved for connoisseurs, this exclusive Navitimer QP series has been crafted exclusively in precious metals: 50 in yellow gold, 50 in rose gold and 25 in platinum. Each Perpetual Calendar Navitimer is of course officially chronometer-certified.

Correcting and setting mechanical functions:

Functions other than the time are set by pressing with a slightly blunt point (like a ballpoint tip) on the watch’s recessed correctors as follows:

1.    Moon phases: press corrector D to position the moon in its current phase,
2.    Date: press corrector F and position the hand on digit 1.
3.    Month and year: press corrector G to adjust the month and, if necessary, the year.
4.    Season: press corrector H to bring the season hand to the mark proceeding the current season then adjust the hand as follows:

January      0 press
February    2 presses
March         4 presses
April            0 press
May             2 presses
June           4 presses
July             0 press    
August       2 presses
September    4 presses
October          0 presses
November     2 presses
December     4 presses

Breitling Navitimer Heritage, Caliber Breitling 35

Return Flight


Caliber: Breitling 35  // Vibrations per hour: 28.800 // Jewels: 38


The Navitimer Heritage Honors the tradition of the authentic aviation chronograph, originating from the famous Navitimer of the fifties, the brand’s emblematic model. Slightly larger than the original Navitimer, the Heritage version features a bracelet integrated within the case, the first for Breitling. Another special feature of the Navitimer Heritage lies in its Flyback mechanism. An additional function allows successive timing operations while elimination the need to stop, return to zero and restart the chronograph. This characteristic, reserved for the most sophisticated aviation chronographs, was made possible by the development of Breitling Caliber 35. This exclusive self-winding movement is also equipped with “very short time” totalizers, graduated over 10 minutes and 3 hours for perfect read-off of the measured times. Like all Breitling movements, the Flyback Caliber 35 is officially chronometer certified. A graduated scale of the weights and measures used in aviation is engraved on the case back. Theses indications provide complementary data to those calculated using the circular slide rule.

Breitling Navitimer World

Hours of the World



Caliber: Breitling 24 // Vibrations per hour: 28.800 // Jewels: 25

The Navitimer World adds a new dimension to the emblematic Breitling line, as the largest Navitimer ever designed. By way of comparison, it is 10% bigger than the original Navitimer, while nonetheless ensuring excellent comfort on the wrist. However, the really distinctive feature of the Navitimer World is its capacity to indicate the time in a seconds timezone. Thanks to Caliber 24, an extremely readable dedicated hand indicates the time somewhere else around the globe, in the 24-hour mode. The caseback is engraved with the timezones of the world’s great cities.
