The Navitimer 1959 Edition in 18k red gold celebrates Breitling’s most iconic model & most coveted early Navitimer design in a limited edition of 159 pieces. The Navitimer 1959 Edition in 18k red gold features a black dial with white contrasting chronograph counters.
Recreating one of the signature elements of the original Navitimer Ref. 806 in 1959, the dial, protected by a highly-domed Plexiglas, is highlighted with a Breitling inscription in capital letters and an unsigned winged logo. In fact, the only concessions to modernity are the water resistance, which has been increased to 3 bar (30 meters), and a Super-LumiNova® coating for which a very special attention has been paid to the color to ensure that it aligns with the aging of the luminescent material on earlier watches. Its hand-finished application gives the dial an additional touch of vintage allure and all its character. The Navitimer 1959 Edition is powered by the in-house Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09, a hand-wound COSC-certified caliber based on the renowned Breitling Caliber 01. The Navitimer 1959 Edition in 18k red gold is available on a brown leather strap with an 18k red gold pin buckle and is limited to 159 pieces.
