NAVITIMER 8 AUTOMATIC
NAVITIMER 8 AUTOMATIC
Purist par excellence: Breitling takes us back to its legendary wristwatches from the 1930s and 1940s with the new Navitimer 8 Automatic.
Breitling’s new wristwatch is the ideal expression of its continuing history as an internationally recognized manufacturer of precise, robust, and extremely reliable timepieces for aviation. In this sense, the Navitimer 8 Automatic has links to exemplary onboard clocks and an expressive pilot’s wristwatch, which made history from 1940 onwards. The Reference 768 underlined the comprehensive expertise that the Huit Aviation Department has consistently demonstrated since its founding in 1938 with its crystal-clear readability, perfect usability, and reliability under any circumstances. Naturally, this version of the Navitimer 8 Automatic is also packed with positive features. It appeals to timekeeping purists who only want to read hours, minutes, seconds, and the date off their blue or black dial. The chronometer certification is a guarantee of precision, which must be passed by every single Breitling Caliber 17 without exception. The maximum running deviation tolerated is between minus four and plus six seconds in a 24-hour period. This makes this 41 millimeter chronometer with a ball-bearing rotor winding on both sides, over 40 hours of power reserve, and four-hertz balance frequency 99.99 percent accurate in a day consisting of 86,400 seconds.
Breitling manufactures its case with convex, double anti-reflective sapphire glass, a screw-in crown, and a solid screw-in base made of stainless steel. You can choose between a leather strap with a pin buckle or a stainless steel strap. A black DLC-coated version with a leather strap is also available. Whatever your choice, the case withstands water pressure up to ten bar.
Finally, the bezel with 60 small notches replaces a chronograph by moving the pointer in front of the minute hand at a certain distance, thus allowing the remaining time to be set for a certain event – completely straightforward and simple. It definitely doesn’t get any simpler and more practical than that.
