The Breitling Navitimer Chronograph series welcomed a new large-diameter watch in 2016- Breitling Navitimer Chronograph 46 Black Steel Watch: all black body, double chronograph dial, black oscillating weight, and a new watch strap emulating the tread pattern of aircraft tires, making it stand out and attracting people’s attention, and it is still popular in nowadays.
Since its introduction in 1952, the Breitling Chronograph watch (Navitimer) has won the favor and enthusiasm of pilots and aviation flight enthusiasts. Today, this classic collection has introduced a new pure black watch: a satin-brushed black steel case with high-strength carbonization, and a black ring-shaped sliding ruler that handles all kinds of calculations required for air navigation.
However, this novel, original, cool and technological appearance is not the only highlight of the Navitimer Chronograph 46 Black Steel watch. Unlike the classic model with three silver chronograph dials, this watch has only two chronographs in the same color as the dial – the small dial at 9 o’clock and the 30 minute accumulate chronograph at 3 o’clock.. The dial as a whole is a precision and pure instrument panel. It is made of ultra-fine “par épargne” technology on the sterling silver chassis. The chronograph sub-dial hands and the central seconds hand are bright red, which perfectly strengthens this trait.
The high-performance “engine” of this watch is a Breitling-made 01 movement with the COSC. Through the transparent sapphire case back, the black oscillating weight is unobstructed.
The black case and dial are paired with a sturdy and comfortable new rubber strap – like the pattern of the aircraft tire tread, further highlighting the aviation character of this watch. From now on, all models of the Breitling chronograph will be available with this new strap, full of immortal legend and everlasting classic.
