If you’re considering a Breitling, or you’ve got your heart set on one but unsure which model is for you, this guide will take you through the different Breitling collections; listing their features, benefits and differences.
The Breitling Navitimer could quite easily carry the crown of ‘Breitling’s most famous watch’. The oldest collection (having launched in 1952), the Navitimer was, and still is, designed with aviation in mind; with the iconic slide rule feature allowing pilots to perform all calculations that a flight plan requires. It is this impressive feature that makes the Navitimer one of the most practical tool watches for use inside a plane’s cockpit. To this day, the Breitling Navitimer continues to be favoured by professional pilots and aviation admirers.
