New Navitimer 41 and Navitimer 41 GMT Watches Are Launched by Breitling

Breitling has launched a slew of eye-catching Navitimer 41 and Navitimer 41 GMT watches in colours of black, ivory, dark blue, emerald green and light blue. The watches join models like the Superocean Automatic 46 Code Yellow and UK-exclusive Superocean Automatic 44 covered earlier this month.


“Up There With The Best”


As far as functional pilot’s watches go, the Breitling Navitimer is up there with the best. It’s one of the most recognisable luxury pilot’s watches in the entire world and is respected for its functional and practical properties when utilised in the cockpit. The iconic slide rule bezel is one of the Navitimer watch’s most recognisable features. Some of the top models from the collection are made from 18ct rose gold and are powered by movements manufactured in-house at Breitling. Some even feature a split-second chronograph, promising superior accuracy. Without a doubt, the Navitimer is Breitling’s flagship model. It is both stylish and functional, giving a pilot no real reason to want for anything more in an aviation watch.


The watch was first released in 1952 and, ten years after its launch, garnered even more fame when it became the first chronograph to enter space. Strapped to the wrist of astronaut, Scott Carpenter, who wore it while on board the Aurora 7 spacecraft, the Navitimer enabled him to determine whether it was day or night thanks to an additional 24-hour scale. The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaut has been released in several versions since then, as has the standard Navitimer.


As mentioned you can get the Navitimer in a chronograph version or a simple three-handed variant. Thanks to its slide rule bezel, it goes far beyond the normal functions of a typical chronograph. It can make the same mathematical calculations as an on-board computer, determining speed, fuel consumption, decline and ascent rates, as well as several other calculations. All of the calibres equipping the Breitling Navitimer watches have been tested to chronometer standards, as have Breitling’s very own in-house movements.

The Navitimer Bezel


The interesting thing to note about the Breitling Navitimer and its slide rule bezel is that although it’s a highly technical feature, it still manages to integrate seamlessly into the simple design of the watch. To avoid over-cluttering the dial and to promote clarity, the highly detailed scale sits around the flange of the dial while the bezel itself is executed in a decorative notched effect. The new models released this week by Breitling put this feature under the spotlight as the alternating polished and brushed finishes of the knurled edges in the bezel catch the light beautifully, accentuating their details. All the while, the dial remains clear and unaffected.

The key thing to note about the Navitimer’s legendary design is that you can operate the outer scale by turning the bezel while the inner scale stays where it is. What that actually does is transform the timepiece into a slide rule. You can convert land and nautical miles to kilometres with the slide rule bezel of the Breitling Navitimer. You can also calculate miles or kilometres per hour and measure your rate of descent or climb. So, the Navitimer is not just for pilos. It can determine how far you’ve travelled, no matter how you travelled. As mentioned earlier, you can carry out other airborne calculations like fuel consumption while in the air too.


The New Breitling Navitimer Automatic 41 Models


As you will already be aware by now, Breitling has released new dial colours and cases in two categories of the Navitimer. One is the Automatic 41, a simplified version of the Navitimer, with no date complication. The other is the Navitimer GMT 41 with an additional 24-hour scale and a date opening displayed at 6 o’clock. No matter which one you choose, both versions house the Swiss-made Breitling 17 and Breitling 32 movement respectively.


The Breitling Navitimer Automatic 41 watches are those supplied without the GMT function. They come in exquisite dial colours of dark blue, emerald green and light blue. These all come in 41mm stainless steel cases with cambered sapphire crystal glass fronts and an uncluttered, unadorned closed steel caseback. These watches promise a water-resistant rating of 300 meters. You can opt for each of these dial colours on a solid 7-row stainless steel bracelet with a matching steel folding buckle engraved with the Breitling logo, or you could opt for a leather band. The dark blue and black dial options boast colour-matching straps with white contrast stitching running down the edges, while the light blue and emerald green options come on a black alligator leather strap.


Then, there are the gold and two-tone versions. Choose from a stainless steel and 18ct rose gold iteration, boasting an ivory dial, or a solid 18ct rose gold with the same ivory dial. Both options offer a touch of vintage-esque beauty and are fitted on a brown alligator leather strap or a bracelet to match the solid gold or two-tone configuration of their respective cases.

The Breitling Navitimer Automatic GMT 41

The GMT versions are similar to the design of the non-GMT models. They offer central hands and stick indexes executed in tones that match their steel or gold cases. Then, Breitling experts have chosen to treat these features with Super-LumiNova to enable time to be tracked in the dark or when travelling throughout the night. The steel option of the 41mm GMT version comes in black, ivory and light blue. All three of these models feature a date window nestled at the bottom of the dial and come equipped with the same sapphire crystal glass protection.

If you’re looking for something even more indulgent, you can choose a solid gold iteration. This, by far, is my favourite of all. With an 18ct rose gold case and bracelet and a rich emerald green dial, the combination makes for an incredibly captivating addition to any collection. Unlike the B04 GMT, this model is the caller-style GMT. It means you move the 24-hour hand to adjust local time. Its clear legible layout distinguishes the different time zones perfectly and benefits from the Navitimer’s slim build, measuring an 11.65mm thickness.
