Breitling's rebirth begins with the Navitimer 8 Series

Five watches in retro aviation style.

Mr. Kern and his team quickly transformed Brentlin from top to bottom and even redesigned the company logo to eliminate the italic "B" wings. Mr. Kern's first new product line is breitling navitimer 8 , a retro-inspired watch collection designed to evoke Breitling's glory days as a supplier of aviation instruments.

The name comes from the Breitling HUIT Aviation Division - "8" is HUIT in France - set up in 1938 to make cockpit clocks and other dashboards. Named after the eight-day power reserve that is common in this clock, the department's name has reverted to Breitling's flagship product line. The "8" is also considered to be an auspicious number in Chinese culture, similar in voice to prosperity. This is an accidental coincidence, because Mr. Kern’s stated goal is to substantially increase the existence of Breitling in China.

Although its name comes from Breitling's most famous watch, with the Navitimer slider, the Navitimer 8 is not a complete remake. In contrast, the Navitimer 8 is similar to Tudor's traditional watches, such as the Black Bay, which is a fusion of various retro watch design elements that blend together to create a subtle vintage feel.

Therefore, the Navitimer 8 relies on the original Navitimer's outer casing with beveled lugs, notched side frames and sword-shaped hands. There are several elements in the vintage Breitling pilot watches replica on the dial, including rail minute tracks, Arabic numerals and sword-shaped hands.

The top model is the Navitimer 8 B01. Powered by the internal Calibre 01 chronograph movement with column and vertical clutches (and the same movement that Breitling supplied to Tudor for its Black Bay Chrono), the Navitimer 8 B01 is 43mm in diameter and is available in steel or 18k Red gold.

More affordable is the Navitimer 8 chronograph, which has the same shape but with a Valjoux 7750 movement inside. Also 43 mm, it has steel or black coated steel.

The Navitimer 8 Unitime is a world time pass crown, which moves the city disk, hour hand, and 24-hour disc in a one-hour step, set forward and backward.

Smaller, more basic is the Navitimer 8 Day-Date. The 41mm steel is driven by the Breitling Calibre 45 and the ETA 2824 comes with a date and date display. In addition, 41 mm is the entry-level model of the series, the Navitimer 8 Automatic. It is equipped with best replica watches review   Breitling Caliber 17, which is actually ETA 2824. The steel case can be painted or painted black.
