After its debut in the Breitling
B01 collection watches, the in-house made Breitling Caliber 01 automatic chronograph movement enters a new watch - this time the Breitling super-classic, the Navitimer. Probably the most recognizable Breitling watch collection of all time, the Navitimer has been around since 1952 and epitomizes the Breitling pilot watch. I think it was this timepiece that made the slide rule bezel popular. And since 1952 only 10 people have actually used the slide rule feature!
There really isn't much different about this Navitimer versus other models that don't have the Caliber 01 movement. Though the movement is COSC Chronometer certified. The watch is a limited edition (of 2000 pieces), and is said to be a bit larger than standard Navitimer in a 43mm wide case. The watch is available in either 18k rose gold or steel. Case is nicely polished and has everything you expect in a Navitimer in terms of function and quality.
Look for these new Breitling Navitimer 01 limited edition watches Spring 2011.
