Good day, watch aficionados! Today’s timepiece is worth a closer inspection - the Breitling Navitimer Heritage Chronograph. Read on to discover all the features of this multifunctional and elegant piece!

The Navitimer can trace its lineage back almost 70 years to aviation's pre-digital era. Approached by CEO and son of Breitling’s founder Willy Breitling in 1934, mathematician Marcel Robert was tasked with designing a dial that pilot’s could use to calculate distance and in turn, fuel consumption and average speeds. His design became what we see here today - the Navitimer.

Based on the ETA 2892-A2 movement, the Breitling Caliber 19 that sits beneath the feature-packed dial powers a seemingly endless list of features. At the noon position is the first of three dual-feature subdials, this one indicating date (on the outer rim) and a small seconds indicator (on the inner one). Opposite at the 6 o’clock position, another subdial shows day indication and a 12-hour timer readouts at the inner and outer spots, respectively. Finally, the 9 o’clock subdial indicates the month on the inside ring and a 30 minute timer on the outermost ring. Of course, this being a Navitimer, the functionality doesn’t stop there - there’s also a moonphase indicator as well as the Navitimer’s signature aviation slide rule.

These chronograph features and others combine for a dizzying array of functionality. Despite a packed dial, Breitling has managed to create a look of stylish elegance that counterpoints the watch’s serious functionality. The 42mm rose gold case and blue alligator strap provide a pop of color and, limited to just 50 pieces, the special exclusivity of this piece is even more pronounced.
