The Breitling Navitimer 01 is the first Navitimer to feature the new internal Breitling B01 movement. Navitimer is probably one of the few original classic pilot watch designs, and Breitling can be said to be the only watch chronograph in continuous production for more than 50 years. Through the B01 movement, Cheap Breitling Replica Watches recently extended the warranty period for Navitimer 01 from two years of typical industry standards to five years.
Another important historical fact is that Navitimer first published the automatic chronograph (late 60s) invention time and cooperated with brands such as Heuer, Hamilton and Zenith. Like all Breitling watches, Navitimer 01 is certified by C.O.S.C. However, can you ask about the special features of this watch, it is worth your time and passion, as well as your emotional and financial investment, is this fair?
Well, like most Breitling watches, it has a certain “golden”, which makes it very eye-catching. Part of the reason is that Breitling Replica Watches uses a highly polished steel case and a classic Navitimer grooved ring on the bezel. However, this Navitimer does differ from the previous version.
First of all, what has not changed is the patented Breitling style and the super busy dial, somehow kept clear. The dial is black with three silver-white small dials and a silver-white sliding regular ring that rotates smoothly with the bezel and also measures resistance. Like all Navitimers, the dial includes three concentric ring markers that basically convert the watch into an analog computer. If you know how to use it, that is…
Use the sliding rule (baffle) and chronograph functions to measure average speed and productivity, perform various calculations such as currency conversion, multiply and divisor, calculate ground speed and miles per minute, calculate climb rate or rate of decline, gas Consumption, of course, is the elapsed time. Using the bezel and the current position of the sun in the sky, you can also use the Navitimer as a compass. And, if that’s not enough to meet your analog computing needs, the rugged back cover includes the watch’s unique serial number, which makes it easy to convert the temperature of Celsius to the Fahrenheit watch. An article published on aBlogToWatch.com this summer (How to Use the Watch Bezel Slide Rule) explains how to use these types of computed bezel slide rules.
There are two very good touches on the busy dial, first of all the brand’s B-wing logo app with gold bumps, followed by Super-LumiNova’s amazingly great application. Lume is applied to the hour and minute hands and applied as a square point on the hour mark. Although at first you would think that this would not affect the legibility of the night, it would actually cause the dial to be very clear in the dark. You only need to charge the lume for a few minutes, you can tell you a few hours in the dark. The date window between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock (not lumed) blends perfectly with the dial, subtly showing the date of the white and black background.
But this may be the most important aspect of this Navitimer, and it also explains this beautiful, short 01 nickname is sports. This is the first Breitling Replica movement B01. This is the same movement as the Chronomat B01 and other newer Breitling models. The same movement is also the basis for the internal changes of Breitling B02 and B03. This is a classic column wheel chronograph design that most people think is a better design of the chronograph, not a replacement for a lever or cam driven movement. Although it is a common design rather than a revolutionary one, creating a brand new internal column chronograph is a big feat and pushes the guarantee to five years, which shows the brand’s new movement. The reliability is full of confidence.
In addition, the 01 movement has a quick date change feature as well as hacker seconds. In addition, you can get a power reserve of nearly three full days (70 hours). Well done by Breitling, welcome to the real watch manufacturer alliance.
The chronograph is a classic double pusher with start/stop button and reset button. The feel on the button is measured by a satisfactory click. At first it might seem a bit too difficult, but it does a good job because the resistance will help ensure that the button is pressed only when you need it.
At start-up, a unique red second hand arrow with a fixed B-flag counter balance moves around the dial in microsteps, and the minute counter at 3 o’clock moves only one position at the 60 second mark. The 6 o’clock hour counts up to 12 hours and moves slightly between the hour markers, indicating that the current hours are 15, 30 and 45 minutes.
Another good option is that the hands of each of these tally watches are made of the same shiny stainless steel as the case, however, the background is silver-white and the pattern is in sharp contrast to the black dial and silver hands. The result is a watch with a very unique look, especially since the rotating slider rule background also has the same silver-white appearance. Truly elegant, unique instrumental style, recognizable from the crowded chronograph pilot watch market…
The lowest-key part of the Navitimer 01 is also one of my favorite features, the strap and the excellent folding clasp and buckle. The black calfskin strap is padded and features a very beautiful heavy white stitch that complements the black/white dial. The leather is soft but thick and the filling makes it very comfortable after adjustment.
The strap can be easily adjusted by pulling the loose strap end of the fold strap. The buckles and buckles are made of the same shiny stainless steel, and the buckles are fitted with the brand’s B-wing logo. Another wonderful design touch.
The buckle is easily clicked into place and firmly secures the wristband around the wrist. This easy adjustment is very useful for my recent trip to Hawaii, I wear it all day. The 120-gram watch is light, which also helps to make the Navitimer 01 easy to wear. A serious tool, but light and comfortable, you can forget that you own it.
At 43 mm, the Navitimer is not a small watch, but due to the central black dial and the silver-white sliding rules around it, the watch wears out and appears smaller. The embedded vase-like shape of the Navitimer dial also contributes to this illusion.
The Navitimer 01 (reference number AB012012-BB01) is not a limited edition with a black leather strap or brown leather or metal bracelet (two types) as shown here. The steel version on the black leather strap (shown) is priced at $7,945, the basic stainless steel strap is priced at $9,020, and the rose gold version is priced at $20,100. The gold strap is priced at least $5,000.
Breitling does offer a limited edition steel Navitimer 01, which, as far as I know, has four hard-to-find changes. The difference is: 1) the platinum B wing logo on the dial replaces gold, 2) the date aperture has a white background, the red number replaces the black background and the white number, 3) the serial number (up to 2000) is engraved on the side of the case, 4) sapphire Crystal bottom cover, showing the internal B01 movement. Among these changes, I hope that the only thing I have is the see-through bottom cover…
Overall, I am very satisfied with the Navitimer 01. As my first introduction to the Fake Breitling Watches, I think I can’t choose a better model. Although it is a striking watch with a “blingy” look, the contrasting black and silver white dial gives it a real instrument feel. Thanks to the various functions of the internal COSC movement 01 movement and dial, the accuracy of the chronograph makes it a practical watch that I can watch for hours and reminds me of the greatest mankind of the 20th century. One of the achievements: aviation.
If I have any negative views on this watch, I don’t have a reference manual to master the various functions of the dial. Also, this is not a watch you want to get wet. It is water resistant to 30 meters, however, the dealer and Swiss Breitling Watches (through the manual) are very clear about this: don’t overwhelm it… I guess the taxi rules are cool but do have obvious drawbacks.
If you want a classic pilot watch with a strong real history, and only a new internal movement will be better, but now guaranteed for five years, Breitling Navitimer 01 should be your first choice. You are getting a superb timepiece with true bloodlines and branding. This brand, like other brands, is passionate and dedicated to the aviation industry, which is beyond doubt.
