Breitling Navitimer  AB0120

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.
As the 1960s became the 1970s and quartz watches grew from an experiment into a massive commercial success, Breitling faced a crisis. It tried to adapt by offering a quartz Navitimer, complete with its own digital LCD display. But that wasn’t enough to save the watchmaker.

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.
