We are proud to present this stylish & contemporary Breitling Navitimer 8 Chronograph watch for sale in mint condition.
The Navitimer 8 collection concisely presents all that Breitling stands for, aesthetically and functionally. The contemporary watch has distinct design codes with historical elements as cues. The moniker ‘8’ is a reference to the collection’s inspiration: the Huit Aviation Department, which was established by Willy Breitling during WWII to make onboard chronographs, offering an eight-day power reserve. The Navitimer 8 really is more like a prequel to the Navitimer 1, with strong references to the designs of the aviation watches from 1930 to 1970 as it has removed the seemingly ever-present slide rule and wings from the Logo, now just an elegant B. Please be advised that this collection was re-branded as the Aviator 8 shortly after release, however this was an early production model and still features 'Navitimer' on the dial and caseback.
This version, reference M13314101B1X1 was launched in 2018 and is no longer in production. It comes set in a matte 43mm DLC stainless steel “Blacksteel” case with a matching bi-rotational bezel featuring only one marker. The black dial features luminous Arab numerals and hands, as well as 3 chronograph sub-dials at 12/9/6 and a day/date aperture at 3 o’clock. The dial is protected by a flat sapphire crystal glass and the water resistance of 10atm (100m/330ft) is ensured by a screwdown crown. Powering the watch is the automatic calibre B13 (7750) chronometer movement, which is protected by a solid caseback. Lastly, the watch comes fitted on a black leather strap with contrasting white stitching and is secured by a “blacksteel” pin buckle.
Originally purchased in July 2020 and in mint condition, this Navitimer 8 comes with its original inner & outer boxes, Breitling service documentation (2023), chronometer certificate and digital international warranty card.
This Breitling benefits from the coverage by its 2-year Breitling service guarantee until 2023.
