THE NAVITIMER 1 AUTOMATIC 38 IS NOT A CHRONOGRAPH…
Breitling points out that there was, in fact, a three-hand Navitimer produced in the 1950s, known as Ref. 66. With no pushers on the case band and no counters on the dial, the highly instrument/tool nature of the watch is erased allowing it to redefine its character as a more elegant, could we say dress replica watch?
A PORTABLE CALCULATOR ON YOUR WRIST
Presented in three variants, the Replica Navitimer I comes with a black and grey dial in a steel case, a creamy dial with a gold and steel case and blue and cream dial in a steel case. The concave dial with slide rule functions, baton indices, luminous hands and date window features touches of red on the tip of the second’s hand and on strategic points of the slide rule.
The Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 is powered by calibre 17, a COSC-certified movement based on Sellita SW-300, with a 40-hour power reserve and 4Hz frequency. The movement displays the hours, minutes, seconds and date and is hidden behind a steel case back.
MY TAKE ON THIS WATCH, AS A WOMAN
When I first saw the three Navitimer I watches, I was drawn to the red gold and steel Breitling Replica Watches with gold beaded bezel and warm, creamy dial. But the white background on the date window changed my mind and I went for the black and grey dial with the less disruptive date window.
