We definitely realized that a few changes were going to come at Breitling. We’ve seen it with the presentation of the Navitimer 8 , a pristine assortment that we disclosed to you in subtleties . This new methodology will be conveyed over all the assortments and that incorporates the notorious Navitimer 1. Here is the first (and intense) development, with the Navitimer 1 Automatic 38. It is little and mostly, it is a 3-hander…
This is a genuine shock: the notable and memorable Navitimer – now named Navitimer 1, contrary to the Navitimer 8 – will be accessible without chronograph. Don’t be tricked however, it isn’t the first time that the name Navitimer is imprinted on the dial of a 3-hand watch, anyway this isn’t generally known. During the 1950s, the brand presented the Ref. 66, a rich dress watch with 3 hands and date – yet, without the amazing plan of the Navi.
So, here we are, at Baselworld 2018. Breitling makes a watch that is both absolutely dedicated to the starting points of the assortment and exceptionally troublesome. For most, the Navitimer is a chronograph. That is all. Be that as it may, seeing the consequence of a more modest, time-and-date Navitimer 1 is… Interesting and considerably more lovely than we could have imagine.
If the chronograph work is out, the remainder of the watch stays close from the first model. Its dial is a lot of cleaner, yet it actually includes the turning bezel with aeronautics rule. The bezel has been overhauled to now show a “beads of rice” bezel, suggestive of the original of Navitimer 806. The case is additionally a lot more modest, at 38mm, regardless of whether the general plan is devoted to the collection.

- Black and dim dial, steel case
- Cream dial with gold lists, steel and gold case
