Breitling Navitimer GMT Aurora Blue Limited Edition
Breitling enhances its Navitimer GMT chronograph line by unveiling a limited series featuring an exclusive blue dial. Available in a 1000 piece limited edition, this new Navitimer GMT model boasts a stunning 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 time-zone 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 red tipped 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.
