Navitimer 8 watches are based on the designs of the Breitling
Huit Department founded by Willy Breitling in 1938. The
Department’s name refers to the eight-hour power reserve
of the dashboard instruments designed by the company. The
watches are inspired by one of Breitling’s most iconic pilot
watches, reference 768 from 1941.
Self-winding mechanical, Power reserve: 70 h, 28,800 v.p.h, caliber Breitling 01 (Manufacture)
Chronograph 1/4th second, 30 minutes, 12 hours

The rotating bezel and triangular
hour markers attracted pilots to the watches. There’s a
strong vintage touch to this limited-edition model in everything
except how it is sold, which is thoroughly modern thanks to a
partnership with Mr Porter, a leading online retailer.
