I’ve always respected the Breitling Navitimer, but it was never “historically” on my list of “must-own classics” for my own personal collection. Now, after wearing and reviewing one of the newer Breitling Navitimer 01 watches, I have to say that my opinion toward the watch has certainly developed for the better, and I certainly think there is a place for a Breitling Navitimer Gold Replica Watches in my collection – because once you get to know this collection you begin to understand why it is so popular and why Breitling has been producing what is essentially a piece of archaic computational equipment for more than 50 years. Now, if only it weren’t a solid gold version of the Navitimer that I fell in love with…
A few years ago, we published an article on “The Top 10 Living Legend Watches” that included the Breitling Navitimer because of its good looks and long production. Today, the Cheap Breitling Replica Navitimer exists in what is arguably its best forms that also include in-house-made Breitling movements. This particular version of the Breitling Navitimer includes the Breitling Calibre 01 – which is their most popular in-house automatic chronograph. With that said, Breitling offers a truly dizzying array of Navitimer watches, and as such, picking the right one can be truly intimidating.
On the Breitling website right now, there are eight distinct model families of the Navitimer, each with a range of versions therein. This Breitling Replica Watches model with its 43mm-wide case itself has six different styles depending on the case, dial, and strap option. You can opt for this watch in a polished steel case or in this polished 18k red gold case. Each is available on strap or bracelet as well as some black or brown dial options. On top of that, you can opt for dials that use these baton-style hour markers or that have Arabic numeral options.
That means you’ll be forgiven if you’ve been eyeing a Breitling Navitimer for a while but haven’t pulled the trigger yet because you aren’t sure what version. Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to tell you the best Navitimer model for you, but I will help you narrow it down based upon your needs and tastes. The first step is figuring out the size you want, as Breitling Replica produces the Navitimer in 42mm, 43mm, 46mm, and 48mm wide cases. From there, you need to figure out whether you want an in-house made movement, or don’t mind a sourced Swiss ETA movement, and what dial as well as case material you are looking for.Navitimer GMT – which each have their own unique elements and sub-varieties.
The purpose-driven design of the Breitling Navitimer is really its savior when it comes to not being a pretentious timepiece. Nothing about the design is about flair or presentation and understanding the history of the watch’s utility for pilots allows you to understand why the time plus chronograph and slide-rule bezel came in very hands in a pre-computer age. In the 1950s when the Best Fake Breitling was first introduced, it was a pretty big deal to have a timepiece with a built-in slide-rule calculator bezel.
Today, no one uses this feature, but they still show up on watches, and no one is producing slide-rule bezels as well as Breitling, with their sense of silky smooth and assured precision turning under your fingers. Being the watch nerds we are, there is a Cheap Breitling Replica article here that explains how to use a slide rule bezel. Slide-rules are one of many such vestigial yet historically functional features you’ll find on mechanical watches. A more simple example is something like the tachymeter scale used to measure distances that you will also often find on chronograph sport watches. Many of these scales were relied upon in the days of pre-electronic calculation and still show up as design markers on watches today. One could make an argument that such elements are mere accouterments being more or less useless by today’s standards. I would not disagree, but I can report that without them these timepieces don’t have the same feeling to them.
