In 2022, the Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 goes back to its roots, showing the fusion charm of retro design and modern dial. The Navitimer watch has become synonymous with Breitling thanks to its circular flying slide rule.
For the first time, Breitling redesigned the Navitimer series. The brand has retained the iconic chronograph look of the collection, while making subtle and modest tweaks. The most obvious change of the new watch is the addition of the Aircraft Owners and World Pilots Association (AOPA) wing logo at 12 o’clock. Breitling pays tribute to the historical original that became the official timepiece of AOPA in 1954. Today, the brand is still a partner of AOPA.
The replica Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 watch is available in two materials of stainless steel and 18K red gold, three case sizes of 41mm, 43mm and 46mm, and more than ten dial colors to meet the different tastes and needs of watch fans around the world. The 41mm model has the same diameter as the early antique models such as Ref.806, which is the most restored. However, it is also upgraded from a manual movement to an automatic movement, so the case is slightly thicker.
Some dial colors have a one-to-one correspondence with case sizes. For example, only the 41mm model is available with a mint green dial with white circular sliders and sub-dials, only the 43mm model is available with a mint green dial with black circular sliders and sub-dials, and only the 43mm model is available with a unique copper dial.
