Limited Edition of 1,884 Pieces
A tribute to Breitling’s rich history, the Navitimer 1884 limited series combines the famous 1952 aviation slide rule with a calendar featuring a pointer-type date display and twin day/month apertures for which the brand was renowned in the 1940s.
The conquest of the air, with the circular aviation slide rule that made the Navitimer the cult watch among pilots and dedicated aviation enthusiasts. Useful, user-friendly functions, with a complete calendar displaying the day and the month through twin apertures at 12 o’clock, and the date by means of a central pointer tipped with a moon crescent: a system known as Datora that became a 1940s Breitling bestseller.
The case, in stainless steel, measures 46mm. Rotating bezel with circular slide rule. AR-coated sapphire crystal and water resistance to 30 meters.
Movement is the Swiss automatic Breitling caliber 21 with 25 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 42 hours. It is COSC-certified as a chronometer chronograph. Functions are: hours, minutes, seconds, 1/4th of a second chronograph, 30-minute and 12-hour counters. Calendar with date hand and twin day and month apertures. This model features an interesting practical detail in the shape of a 9 o’clock small seconds subdial providing an additional 24-hour “military-time” display much favored by pilots and which also facilitates calendar adjustment by distinguishing between day and night.
The all-black dial is made using the par épargne technique on a solid silver base enlivened with red accents. It has luminous hands and markers.
It comes on the Navitimer steel bracelet, or a crocodile leather strap with steel deployant. It is also available with a new black rubber strap featuring an aircraft tire-tread motif.
