Today I have the pleasure of reviewing the newest addition to the incredibly important and historic Navitimer line of watches by Breitling.
The Navitimer is without a doubt my favourite chronograph, so when I heard there was a new, smaller, 38mm version (Ref. A17325211C1A1) released at 2018 Baselworld I was super excited. However, this new version is not a chronograph and it has also done away with some other much loved features following a major shift in the brand’s priorities under new leadership.
To further understand these recent developments, I explore the history of the Navitimer and trace its roots from adventures in space to James Bond movies, bankruptcy, and some fascinating innovations along the way.
Will this be the biggest disaster for the Navitimer or a badly needed, refreshing start? Join me to find out!
