Chronographs and aeronautics are combined by Brietling in legendary Navitimer model. It's limited series equipped with its proprietary Caliber 01. What is Navitimer Caliber 01? It is Navitimer with 100% in-house mad chronograph movement. You can choose between one of 2,000-piece steel or 200-piece red gold editions. In 2009, Breitling laid a major milestone in its history by joining the exclusive circle of the rare watch companies to have their own mechanical chronograph movement. Bietling has their way in this technology of time. By immediately choosing to specialize in chronographs and timers, Léon Breitling, who founded the company in 1884, soon gained favor among aviation pioneers who needed sturdy, high-performance instruments. During the 1930s, the brand launched its first onboard chronographs, which were to equip World War II fighter planes, before accompanying the boom in air transport in the cockpits of the finest propeller planes, and later jets.
