Breitling Aviation Chronograph Breitling Navitimer came out in 1952, using the design and movement of Breitling’s famous Chronomat chronograph.Then it turned into a powerful aviation instrument. Navitimer’s sliding bezel is designed to solve logarithmic calculations in flight. It’s not just a replica luxury watch, it’s also a wrist navigation computer for pilots today.
Out of concern for the aviation industry, the first Navitimer copy watches carry the logo of the Association of Aircraft Owners and Pilots. Early navigators, such as No. 806, used the Venus 178 movement. Breitling improved the chronometer throughout the 1950s and 1960s, replacing the Venus 178 with the Valjoux 72 caliber in 1954, and eventually switched to the Valjoux 7740 caliber in the late 1960s. Navitimer with Valjoux 7740 achieved a new achievement: the date.
From the 1960s to the 1970s, quartz replica watches for sale have grown from experimental to large-scale commercial success. Breitling then faced a crisis. It tries to adapt by providing a quartz Navitimer and its own digital LCD display. But this is not enough to save the watchmaker.
Breitling’s financial problems caused changes in company ownership, and Navitimer changed. This watch reappeared in the 1990s with the Valjoux 7750 movement and in 2003 with the ETA 2892 movement.
It was not until 2009 that Hyundai Navitimer fully became Breitling’s own watch. In 2009, Navitimer was the first movement equipped with Breitling 01 movement, which is the internal movement used in the current Navitimer swiss cheap watch series.
