Breitling's icon - for the journey
Breitling's icon - for the journey
The Navitimer is one of the most recognisable watches ever made. It’s on collectors’ lists of the greatest watches of all time. What began in 1952 as a tool for pilots has gone on to mean something profound to every single person who has had this timepiece along on their personal journey.
The new showstopping assortment of Breitling’s iconic watch includes two slender new sizes, featuring radiant mother-of-pearl dials, traceable 18 k red gold, and responsible lab-grown diamonds.
But these showstoppers have so much more to offer than just their trim new sizes.
Pops of pastel, mother-of-pearl, and traceable precious materials combined with the Navitimer’s distinct beaded bezel to create timepieces with a jewellery-like appeal—giving the legendary navigational watch a versatile elegance that’s ready for wherever the journey takes you.
ALL THE LOOK IN A JEWELLERY-LIKE FORMAT: THE NAVITIMER AUTOMATIC 36
The 36-mm Navitimer features the beaded bezel and iconic circular slide rule (used by pilots as an analog calculator) that give the Navitimer its unmistakable appearance. But here it comes in a trio of chic metallic dial colours (mint green, silver, and anthracite) with baton indexes, or with a white mother-of-pearl dial set with round-cut “better diamonds”.
Part of Breitling’s mission to do better, these diamonds are lab-grown and traceable to accredited producers who have achieved the SCS-007 Sustainability Rated Diamonds Standard. Similarly, the full-gold version is crafted in “better gold”, traceable to artisanal and small-scale mines that meet the Swiss Better Gold Association’s criteria for social and environmental impact.
The Navitimer 36 is powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17, providing three-hand time and automatic winding.
FLAWLESS STYLE, EXCEPTIONAL ACCURARY: THE NAVITIMER 32
This dazzling new interpretation of the classic aviation watch forgoes the slide rule in favour of a simplified dial design suited to its slim diameter.
Where this small watch packs a big punch is in its mother-of-pearl dials in powdery pink and light-blue—a first for Breitling—along with classic white. As with the larger 36, the 32 features better diamonds across the line and better gold on the full-gold version.
They all carry the Origins label. The power behind this watch comes from the Breitling Caliber 77, a supremely precise SuperQuartz™ movement that, as with all of Breitling’s quartz calibers, has the added distinction of being COSC-certified. It also features a 50-meter (5-bar) water resistance, impressive for a watch this size.
ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING ACTOR CHARLIZE THERON AS THE FACE OF THE NEW NAVITIMER 36 AND 32
The Breitling Navitimer Squad is made up of basketball superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, principal dancer Misty Copeland, aviation pioneer Bertrand Piccard—and now, Academy Award-winning actor Charlize Theron, the face of the new Navitimer 36 and 32.
Each member of the Navitimer Squad, has been on an incredible journey to get to the top of their fields. Using powerful visuals and the Squad Members’ own narration, the campaign gets to the heart of these moving journeys.
“My journey has always been about being up for any challenge,” says Theron. “I travelled from South Africa to Los Angeles when I was quite young and both that physical journey and the journey of being open-minded and ready for new experiences has served me well personally and professionally.”
