There’s not at all like news on a Friday and today some vivid, and alluring, data hit our post boxes with the presentation of the Breitling Navitimer Swissair Edition. In tempered steel and 43mm (as a Navitimer ought to be measured), Breitling reveals to us that this watch is the first to come of inside a “capsule collection” of models that will harken back to the brilliant period of non military personnel aircraft travel in the 60’s and 70’s. The watches will highlight the names of notable carrier brands and the tones that they used. Honestly, I think it’s an applicable thought for the brand, particularly since Breitling has acquired its standing as a pilot’s watch. It doesn’t hurt that the principal discharge looks so damn great as well!
The Breitling Navitimer Swissair Edition will be sold as an uncommon version (which means non-numbered), yet will be made for a restricted period. Inside, we have the in-house B01 programmed chronometer-affirmed chronograph development that likewise includes a date. The piece will be accessible on a lash, network arm band, or the “Air Racer” bracelet. We’re speculating valuing will be around the $8K imprint and I’d surmise that the watches will become accessible inside the main quarter of 2019.
Now, let’s hear into a touch more point of view on the grounds that, all things considered, you don’t come to Fratellowatches for press pics and a spec rundown. Normally, a watch, for example, this wouldn’t arouse my curiosity, yet there’s something here in the Breitling Navitimer Swissair Edition that I like a great deal: the tone choice. We’ve absolutely seen Breitling plunge into its 70’s library previously, yet this is new while summoning recollections of some dearest pieces inside the brand’s back catalog. I’m utilizing a few pieces from Fred Mandelbaum (otherwise known as ) from our vintage Breitling Interviews reference article as specific illustrations, however let’s investigate see.
First off, the incredible SuperOcean Chrono-Matic ref. 2105 comes to mind when taking a gander at the Breitling Navitimer Swissair Edition.
Then, it’s hard not to see some Chrono-Matic ref.2110 when taking a gander at the new Breitling Navitimer Swissair Edition. The new piece might be more rosy in pictures from a shading point of view, however the likeness is plainly there to the old orange pieces. Just look at those hands and one can see the link. And, it utilizes a date window in the new Navitimer somewhat less worried as the Chrono-Matics obviously included that complication.
We’re not certain what’s next on the plan for the case assortment (yet we question Hooters Airline will make the cut), however in the event that the Breitling Navitimer Swissair Edition is any sign of what’s to come, we’re interested. Some will disapprove of what is basically a stylish change to a long-running model, yet isn’t that what a portion of our number one brands do constantly (ahem, Speedmaster)? And furthermore, if airlines aren’t your thing, the carrier logo isn’t obvious from the front. No, this isn’t a great delivery that will change the course of the brand, yet I’d consider it a fun, innovative delivery that infuses a touch of sparkle into what is apparently Breitling’s most renowned watch. Watch this space – we’ll be back with additional as Georges Kern and group turn out more bright pieces.
