Breitling Navitimer A23322
Introduced in 1952, the Breitling Navitimer took the design and movement of Breitling’s famous Chronomat and turned it into a powerful aviation instrument. With a slide rule bezel designed to solve logarithmic calculations on the fly, the Navitimer was more than a watch — it was a helpful wrist-mounted navigation computer for pilots of the day.
True to its aviation focus, the first Navitimer watches featured the logo of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Early Navitimers, such as the reference 806, used a Venus 178 movement. Breitling improved the Navitimer throughout the 1950s and 60s, replacing the Venus 178 with a Valjoux 72 movement in 1954, and eventually switching to a Valjoux 7740 movement in the late 1960s. With the Valjoux 7740, the Navitimer gained a new complication: a date.
Breitling’s financial problems resulted in the company changing ownership, and the Navitimer changing with it. The watch re-emerged during the 1990s with a Valjoux 7750 movement, and in 2003 with an ETA 2892 movement.
It wasn’t until 2009 that the modern Navitimer became entirely Breitling’s own watch. The 2009 Navitimer was the first to feature the Breitling 01 caliber—the in-house movement used for the current range of Navitimer wristwatches.
Introduced in 2003, the Navitimer Chronograph A23322 is the quintessential modern Breitling Navitimer. With a 42mm case, stainless steel slide rule bezel and large dial, the Navitimer is a stylish watch built with aviation and adventure in mind.
The A23322 combines the tool watch functionality of the original Navitimers with more usable modern complications. Notable features include a date window at five o’clock, a power reserve of 42 hours, and water resistance of up to 30 meters.
