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 hardened 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 time of regular citizen airline travel in the 60’s and 70’s. The watches will highlight the names of memorable airline 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 main delivery looks so damn great as well!
The Breitling Navitimer Swissair Edition will be sold as an uncommon release (which means non-numbered), yet will be made for a restricted period. Inside, we have the in-house B01 programmed chronometer-guaranteed chronograph development that additionally includes a date. The piece will be accessible on a lash, network wristband, or the “Air Racer” bracelet. We’re speculating evaluating 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 in light of the fact 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 provoke 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 conjuring recollections of some cherished 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, yet let’s investigate see.
First off, the amazing 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 ruddy in pictures from a shading viewpoint, however the similarity 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 unmistakably included that complication.
We’re not certain what’s next on the plan for the container assortment (however we question Hooters Airline will make the cut), yet on the off chance 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 tasteful change to a long-running model, yet isn’t that what a portion of our #1 brands do constantly (ahem, Speedmaster)? And also, if airlines aren’t your thing, the airline logo isn’t obvious from the front. No, this isn’t a fantastic delivery that will change the course of the brand, yet I’d consider it a fun, imaginative delivery that infuses a touch of flash into what is seemingly Breitling’s most well known watch. Watch this space – we’ll be back with additional as Georges Kern and group turn out more bright pieces.
