With the new Navitimer 1959 Edition in platinum, Breitling made the best variation of the Navitimer re-edition model introduced at Baselworld 2019.
Restricted to only 59 pieces, the new model comes in a 43.00 mm x 13.43 mm platinum case water impervious to 3 bar (30 meters/100 feet) and described by a rotating beaded bezel made of 94 dots, precisely the number found on the original 1959 model, the Navitimer ref. 806.

Ensured by an exceptionally domed Plexiglas which upgrades the vintage look of the watch, the blue dial highlights tone-on-tone chronograph counters with a Breitling inscription in capital letters and an unsigned winged logo.
For upgraded neatness, Super-LumiNova coating is hand-applied to the Arabic numerals and the syringe hands.
The Navitimer 1959 Edition is controlled by the in-house Manufacture Caliber B09 beating at 28,800 vibrations each hour with a force reserve of 70 hours. In view of the Breitling Caliber 01, this hand-wound movement is guaranteed as a chronometer by COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.
Coordinated to a blue crocodile tie with a white gold pin clasp, the Breitling Navitimer 1959 Edition in platinum ref. LB0910211C1P1 has a cost of Euro 38,000 (including VAT)/US$ 39,900 (excluding deals charge). breitling.com
