Breitling celebrates the golden era of commercial aviation with the Navitimer 1 Airline Editions, starting with the 43 Swissair Edition.

Breitling has long played an important role in the golden era of aviation, helping crews track the full range of calculations related to navigation for generations and its newest release, the Navitimer 1 Airline Editions, commemorate the most emblematic airlines of that time, with the first piece, the Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 Swissair Edition, a homage to one of Europe’s most endearing carriers.

The Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 Swissair Edition, which celebrates the national airline of Breitling’s home, features a transparent sapphire caseback with a printed Swissair logo. Its 43-millimetre stainless-steel case is presented with a black dial, silver subdials, and a vintage-inspired black leather strap or a stainless steel mesh bracelet.

The Breitling Capsule Collection Navitimer 1 Airline Editions watches are powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. The in-house mechanical chronograph movement has been acclaimed as one of the world’s finest and delivers both remarkable precision and a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. All models feature a bidirectional rotating bezel fitted with the famous circular slide rule, which serves to perform the entire range of calculations relating to airborne navigation.
