With its own movement: Breitling Navitimer 01
In 2009, Breitling achieved what the company’s history had so far withheld: With the development of caliber B01, the brand became a manufacturer. The movement with chronograph meets the highest standards and is certified as a chronometer – as has been the case with all Breitling movements for the past ten years. The exterior design of the new cheap replica Breitling Navitimer 01 watches is again close to the original – and thus continues to inspire pilots and watch wearers.
For the 60th anniversary of the Navitimer in 2012, Breitling is launching the UK AAA fake Breitling Navitimer 01 Blue Sky Limited Edition watches with a blue dial, limited to 500 pieces. A special feature is the glass bottom, which was only used in limited series of the Navitimer at the time. Below is the automatic manufacture caliber 01 with column wheel.

In 2014, the best Breitling Navitimer 01 replica watches will appear at Baselworld with an enlarged case; their diameter increases from 42 to 46 millimeters. The brand is also launching a travel watch: the Navitimer GMT has another hand with a red tip that points to the gold-colored 24-hour scale. The B04 automatic movement is responsible for this.
In 2015, the brand presented a special model limited to 500 pieces, the Navitimer AOPA. Founded in 1939 in the USA, AOPA is the largest association of aircraft owners and pilots. At the time, she was so enthusiastic about the chronograph that she declared it her official watch. That’s why the AOPA logo is emblazoned on the case back of the watch.
In 2016, the watch brand is commemorating its history with the Breitling Navitimer 1884. The top Breitling copy watches, limited to 1,884 pieces, combines the slide rule with the combination of hand date and day and month in the window known as “Datora”. This form of display dates back to the 1940s. The model with retro charm is powered by the chronometer-certified automatic caliber Eta-Valjoux 7751.
Also this year, Breitling is launching a special model of the Navitimer that combines the colors brown and black. Breitling builds a total of 1,000 of the Navitimer 01 (46 mm) Limited Edition. The steel case of the chronograph is 46 millimeters in size, and its black dial is complemented by brown subdials. The model is powered by the automatic manufacture caliber Breitling 01.
Development stages of the chronograph caliber
Since the B01 caliber was introduced in 2009, Breitling has modified the in-house caliber: The B02 is the hand-wound version, the B04 offers a GMT display and the B05 a world time indication. At Baselworld 2017, the brand presented the automatic caliber B03 as a rattrapante chronograph. Breitling has developed and patented a new decoupling mechanism for this movement.
A second innovation concerns the split-seconds display. Swiss movements Breitling replica watches has improved this to enable more precise stopping. Since the mechanism sits as a module on the automatic movement, it can be easily removed for a revision. Like all Breitling calibers, caliber B03 has also been certified as a chronometer by the COSC.
UHREN-MAGAZIN has extensively tested the stainless steel version of the Navitimer Rattrapante chronograph with caliber B03. Here you can download the test for only 0.99 euros.
2018 – Time for change: The new Navitimer line
In January 2018, Breitling, under then-new boss Georges Kern, unveiled a new Navitimer line inspired by historical models (which has since been renamed the Aviator 8). The Navitimer 8 comprised five models: Navitimer 8 B01, Navitimer 8 Chronograph, Navitimer 8 Automatic, Navitimer 8 Day & Date and Navitimer 8 Unitime. The big surprise: The China Breitling replica watches did not have the characteristic slide rule bezel, which has been the unmistakable feature of the line since the introduction of the first Navitimer in 1952. In the history of the Navitimer there have always been models that also did not have a calculation scale. The flagship of the new collection was the Navitimer 8 B01 Chronograph. The watch with a diameter of 43 millimeters was available in steel with a black or blue dial and in red gold with a bronze dial. You can read an interview with Breitling boss Georges Kern about the then new line and the future of the brand here.
Big, bigger, Navitimer Super 8
The brand also presented the super clone Breitling Navitimer Super 8 watches for sale, inspired by the reference 637. Bomber crews wore this stopwatch on their thighs during World War II. With a case size of 50 millimeters, it was not for delicate wrists. The Navitimer Super 8 was available in both titanium with a green dial and steel with a black dial. Time spans could be measured with the huge, bidirectional rotating bezel with a red triangle. The caliber B20 works inside, which is based on the Tudor manufacture caliber MT5612. It has a 70 hour power reserve and is chronometer certified.
This model also belongs to the new Breitling era: The Navitimer Automatic – still called the Navitimer 1 Automatic when it was introduced – does not have a chronograph function, but it does have a slide rule bezel. With the omission of the stop function and the smaller case size of 38 millimeters, this Breitling Navitimer replica watches wholesale even looks a little elegant. The stainless steel watch is powered by the automatic Caliber 17, which is based on the Eta 2824 and has a chronometer certificate. The Navitimer Automatic is available with a wide variety of dials.
The Navitimer models 2019
For Baselworld 2019, Breitling made the first changes to the new Navitimer line. From then on, the Navitimer 8 was called the Aviator 8. The watch manufacturer from Grenchen also added special retro-style models to the fake Breitling Navitimer watches for men, reminiscent of the three legendary airlines PanAm, TWA and Swissair.
The Airline Editions were identified by the airline-colored dial, the tip of the sweep seconds hand shaped like an airplane, and the airline’s name on the caseback. All models come with a 43 millimeter stainless steel case.
However, the highlight among the Navitimer models of 2019 was the Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition. This new edition of the first Navitimer, presented in 1952, remained visually close to the original. It inherited the all-black dial, 40.9-millimeter case size, acrylic glass, and beaded knurling on the bezel. However, Breitling equipped the pilot’s watch with the contemporary B09 manual winding caliber. All information about the re-edition of the first Navitimer can be found here.
Navitimer 8 becomes Aviator 8
Back to the roots: Only those who own a slide rule bezel will also be called Navitimer in the future. Breitling has renamed its Navitimer 8 models, all of which lacked the famous slide rule bezel, to the Aviator 8. In this way, the brand is now avoiding confusion that has certainly arisen with one or the other buyer and caused resentment.
2022: 70 years of Navitimer
In 2022 the famous Navitimer celebrated its 70th birthday. Reason enough to present new dials, case sizes and detailed changes in the design. In addition to 46 and 43 millimeters, there is now also a 41 millimeter case to choose from. The slide rule ring of the luxury replica Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 watches is flatter. The date is now in the hour counter at six o’clock.
Perhaps the most important change, however, is the return of the winged AOPA logo on the dial: two years after the Navitimer’s appearance, the “Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association” (association of aircraft owners and pilots) declared the functional chronograph to be their official watch. Breitling is now skeletonizing the winding rotor to provide a better view of the movement. Inside, the manufacture automatic caliber B01 still works with a 70-hour power reserve, chronometer precision, a modern vertical clutch and a column wheel for safe control of the chronograph functions.
In the anniversary year, the brand also relaunched a classic from the company’s history: the Cosmonaute. The original Cosmonaute accompanied NASA astronaut Scott Carpenter on May 24, 1962 on his Mercury-Atlas 7 mission in the spacecraft Aurora 7 on three orbits in space. The new high quality fake Breitling Navtimer B02 Chronograph 41 Cosmonaute Limited Edition watches follows its historical model in many details, namely the 24-hour division on the dial. Scott Carpenter had commissioned this type of inscription from Willy Breitling specifically for his mission, in order to be able to distinguish between the hours of the day and the hours of the night in space. Other similarities include the circular slide rule bezel, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) wing logo, and the three sub-dials.
The case size of 41 millimeters and the platinum bezel are new. The watch shows both the number 24 and the brand lettering above the center on the dial. Through the sapphire crystal caseback you can see the hand-wound manufacture caliber B02 with a 70-hour power reserve, whose bridge engravings “Carpenter”, “Aurora 7” and “3 orbits around the earth” are reminiscent of the mission at that time. The limitation of 362 copies also reminds of the 3 orbits of the earth and the year of the mission.
New Navitimer models
Early August 2023 Earlier this month, Breitling introduced the Navitimer B01 Chronograph 46 as a limited edition for the US market. The anthracite dial with black sub-dial is housed in a 46mm stainless steel and 18k red gold case. The 2023 online replica Breitling watches has a black alligator leather strap with a folding clasp. Only 300 pieces of the B01 Chronograph 46 US Limited Edition will be available.
In early 2023, Breitling will launch another limited Navitimer edition in honor of the legendary Boeing 747, which had a decisive impact on air travel. The Swiss made fake Breitling Navitimer Boeing 747 watches bears the AOPA logo at 12 o’clock, the dial colors reflect the colors of the original Boeing 747: a cream dial with black sub-dials and a red and white slide rule with blue accents. The lettering “Boeing 747” is discreetly integrated into the inner scale of the slide rule. The watch also features an integrated date window at 6 o’clock. It is available with a black alligator leather strap or a seven-row metal bracelet. The case back reveals the Swiss brand’s Breitling Caliber 01, which is COSC chronometer-certified and offers a power reserve of around 70 hours. The case back bears the special engraving “One of 747” and the writing “The Original Jumbo Jet”. The watch starts at 9,050 euros on a leather strap, the variant on a stainless steel bracelet costs 9,400 euros.
