The Breitling Navitimer GMT Aurora Blue is a keen keen traveler
A skyborne ace with its famous aviation slide rule and a timezone champion with its Manufacture Breitling movement delivering unprecedented user friendliness, the Navitimer GMT chronograph extends a fresh new travel invitation with a limited series featuring an exclusive blue dial. The blue of broad skies and far horizons… If ever a color were perfectly suited to the Navitimer GMT, this would be it, a fact well grasped by Breitling and expressed in this 1,000-piece limited edition of its cult model. Its blue dial with a discreet sunburst decor and tone-on-tone counters radiates a technical, elegant and timeless style.
The Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04 beating inside the large steel case is distinguished by a high-performance chronograph combined with an extremely functional dual timezone system. To adjust the main hour hand to local time, the wearer need only pull out the crown and turn it in either direction in one-hour increments – without losing any precision in terms of the minutes and with the date being automatically adjusted both forwards and backwards. Meanwhile, the redtipped hand continues to show home time in 24-hour mode, thus serving to distinguish day from night. A transparent sapphire crystal caseback provides a chance to admire the movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), a token of superior reliability and precision.
The Navitimer GMT Aurora Blue features another original characteristic in the shape of a colorful rubber strap matching the dial color and adorned with an aircraft-tire tread motif. It is also available with a leather or crocodile leather strap, or a steel bracelet.
