    Cool Breitling Navitimer Owner Thread

    I am shocked that as an iconic and important watch, Navitimer doesn't even has its own thread.

    Personally, I consider Navitimer as one of the most important chrono and aircraft watch.

    So I decide to share my Navitimer 01 (AB0120) as a beginning of a thread.

    Feel free to post pics of the lovely Navi and comment about this watch!

    Re: Breitling Navitimer Owner Thread

    Mine was just delivered on Friday and I could not be more in love. It's been a weird road to getting this watch. First saw it when I was reading a thread years ago about the watches from House of Cards. Doug stamper wears one in the show, but I always thought it was too busy and never was my kind of watch. I held these feelings up until a few months ago, when something flipped inside of me and I couldn't stop looking at Navi pics online. I was gearing up for a bigger watch purchase and thought I was going for a used Rolex GMT master 2 Pepsi, but once that switch flipped, I knew I had to have the Navitimer. (It also helps that it was a few thousand cheaper than the Rolex).

    The Navitimer was just delivered on Friday and I absolutely love it. I thought the slide rule bezel wouldn't be useful, but I just took a job that will have me in Paris a lot and traveling around Europe a ton, so the bezel's going to be great for calculating the exchange rate between Euros and USD.

    I got it with both the black and gold leather straps; the quality on both is amazing. Was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions for straps for this thing.

    Congrats bro, looks like yours is 46mm. Love the brown strap, I think any leather or military strap will do for a good looking Navi. I am currently searching for a bracelet for Navi but it was actually way much expensive than I expected.

    43 was solid case back, you can see the movement in 46mm version. I personally like the 43mm version more.

    Some 43mm Navitimers have an exhibition caseback -
