Breitling’s iconic pilot’s chronograph, the Navitimer B01 Chronograph 46 Black Dial Watch (AB0137211B1P1), is a testament to the brand's rich aviation heritage. Introduced in 1952 by Willy Breitling, this luxury chronograph features a circular slide rule that allows pilots to perform essential flight calculations. Two years later, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) adopted the design as its official timepiece, solidifying the "navigation timer" or Navitimer as the quintessential pilot’s watch.

 

The Navitimer has been cherished by airline captains and aircraft enthusiasts, and it even ventured into space with astronaut Scott Carpenter in 1962. Its aesthetic appeal also captivated celebrities like Miles Davis and Serge Gainsbourg. The latest iteration of the Navitimer maintains its classic features while incorporating modern refinements. The flattened slide rule and domed crystal create a sleeker profile, and the alternating polished and brushed metal elements provide a lustrous yet understated finish. Notably, the AOPA wings have returned to their original position at 12 o'clock, evoking a sense of nostalgia.

 

This model features a 46mm stainless steel case with a black dial, powered by the Breitling Caliber 01, a COSC-certified chronometer known for its precision and reliability. With its timeless design and impeccable craftsmanship, the Navitimer remains Breitling’s most iconic timepiece and one of the most recognizable watches of all time.
