Talk of the town


The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited

This COSC certified chronometer comes in a limited edition of 1000 pieces. While the watch is clearly classy and elegant to look at, it is also technically sound. The cutting-edge movement is visible through a transparent sapphire caseback. This timepiece is very stylish, featuring an elegant silver dial and anthracite contrasting chronograph with small seconds subdials. The distinctive satin-brushed bezel features indexes and Arabic numerals in addition to its practical pointer. The watch is presented on a brown leather strap.

MR PORTER will offer a curated selection of 31 timepieces from Breitling’s iconic product families. The Navitimer 8 collection was inspired by the Huit Aviation Department, which was established by Willy Breitling in 1938. The division’s name was taken from the French word for “eight,” reflecting the need for cockpit instruments of the day to have an eight-day power reserve. This is also an allusion to the aviation heritage of the brand.
