The proven and practically indestructible caliber 13 represents the driving force of this chronograph. This allows the work of art and as such the chronograph must be considered to display the hours, minutes and small seconds as well as the date. This, it may be legitimately assumed, to the most exact. Where, however, perfection was required, the so-called hardware must not make any difference. This can be seen in the hand-polished stainless steel case, the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides and the rotating bezel. The slide rule, indispensable for aviation, was placed on it. The naturally luminescent hands and indices of this chronograph are located on a black polished dial. The diameter of this chronograph is 1 mm smaller (due to the calibre 13 in the chronograph). Not a millimetre too much and not a millimetre too little.
Timelessness has a name
Secretly, you ask yourself how much time you put into the construction of this chronograph. How much thought and skill was needed to create the Breitling Navitimer 1 Chronograph 41. What is certain, however, is that this marvel of technical mechanics is unique in its precision. The design proves this anyway. Precision and design. At Breitling, these two go hand in hand!
