Breitling has announced the release of two new models ahead of this year’s Baselworld which kicks off on March 17.
Our appreciation for these technical and trendy timepieces continues to increase and these two new additions do not disappoint in style nor specs.
Breitling Navitimer 01 Limited Edition
This version of Breitling’s iconic model is being released in a limited edition of just 1,000 – destined to be a coveted collector’s piece.
The Navitimer regularly refreshes its face and the new dark grey dial and black counters effectively modernise the flagship version, with its black dial and silver counters, while remaining true to its legendary design.
Powered by the Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01, entirely developed and produced in the company workshops and chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), this Navitimer, along with its predecessors, delivers unfailing precision and reliability.
Another special feature is the black coating on the oscillating weight, visible through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback. The watch is available with either a steel bracelet, or with leather or crocodile leather straps in range of colours.
More than 60 years after it was first launched, the Navitimer continues to stand the test of time (pardon the pun).
Breitling Avenger Bandit
Designed for adrenalin junkies, the Avenger Bandit is robust, edgy and practical. And it’s big.
It boasts a 45mm, light satin-brushed titanium case, so it makes a statement on the wrist – made more subtle however with the watch’s muted tones; the titanium-grey dial given a little lift with cool red accents.
The calibre is a Breitling 13, COSC chronometer-certified.
It features a quarter-second, 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph and date window, and 42 hours of power reserve. It’s water-resistant to 300m/1,000 ft.
Its exclusive strap combines rubber with high-tech military textile fibre.
We’re anticipating plenty of interest in this solid and stylish tool watch.
To enquire, please contact one of our watch specialists at your nearest Smales showroom. The availability of these models in store will be announced in the coming weeks.
