WHEREVER THE JOURNEY TAKES YOU:MEET THE NEW NAVITIMER 36 AND 32
Introducing a showstopping assortment of Breitling’s iconic watch in two slender new sizes, featuring radiant mother-of-pearl dials, traceable 18 k red gold, and responsible lab-grown diamonds. The new Navitimer 36 and 32 debuts in an intimate NAVITIMER – FOR THE JOURNEY campaign starring Charlize Theron.
The Navitimer is one of the most recognisable watches ever made. Among collectors, it is known as one of the best watches ever. What began as a tool for pilots has taken on a profound meaning for every person who has had this timepiece on their journey.
Now Breitling introduces two new additions to the Navitimer collection, in 36 mm and 32 mm sizes for anyone who likes the look and feel of a smaller-diameter watch. But these flagships have so much more to offer than just their new sizes. Combining pastel colours, mother-of-pearl and traceable precious materials with the Navitimer’s signature beaded bezel results in timepieces with jewel-like appeal, giving the legendary navigation watch a versatile elegance ready for any travel destination.
The campaign for the Navitimer 36 and 32 stars Oscar-winner Charlize Theron. She showcases her personal journey from remote South Africa to international stardom. Theron’s NAVITIMER – FOR THE JOURNEY campaign is part of an intimate series narrated by Breitling’s brand ambassadors in their own words. “You can see someone from across the room, and you know they are wearing a Navitimer. The watch is “so recognisable,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.”Charlize Theron is a great ambassador for this line, an icon known worldwide for her strength, beauty, talent and powerful journey.”
ALL THE LOOKS IN A JEWEL-LIKE FORMAT: THE NAVITIMER AUTOMATIC 36
The 36-mm Navitimer features the beaded bezel and the iconic circular slide rule used by pilots as an analogue calculator. These give the Navitimer its unmistakable look. But it is available with dials in three different chic metallic colours (mint green, silver and anthracite) with bar indexes or a white mother-of-pearl dial set with round-cut ‘better diamonds’.
As part of Breitling’s mission to do better, these diamonds are sourced from the laboratory and traceable to accredited producers who have achieved the SCS-007 Sustainability Rated Diamonds Standard. Similarly, the all-gold version and gold bezel on the duo-tone are made from ‘better gold’, traceable to artisanal and small-scale mines that meet the social and environmental impact criteria of the Swiss Better Gold Association.
All watches in this collection with better gold, better diamonds or both bear the Origins label, a sign of the product integrity of the high-quality materials. The Navitimer 36 has the COSC-certified Breitling calibre 17, which provides a three-hand time display and automatic winding mechanism.
IMPECCABLE STYLE, EXCEPTIONAL ACCURACY: THE NAVITIMER AUTOMATIC 32
This dazzling new interpretation of the classic pilot’s watch forgoes the slide rule, favouring a simplified dial design to match its small diameter. The strength of this small watch is the mother-of-pearl dial in powder pink and blue, which is a first for Breitling, alongside the colour classic white. Like the larger 36, the 32 has better diamonds and gold on the all-gold version and the bezel of the duo-tone. They all bear the Origins label.
The power behind this watch comes from the Breitling calibre 77, a high-precision SuperQuartzTM movement that, like all Breitling quartz calibres, is COSC-certified as an additional unique feature. The watch is also water resistant to 50 metres (5 bar), which is impressive for a watch of this size.
