MONOCHROME: Introducing the Breitling Navitimer 01 in 46mm and Navitimer 1461 in 48mm (LIVE photos & pricing)---he Navitimer is Breitling’s most emblematic watch. Presented in 1952 with the reference 806 as the ultimate pilot chronograph, equipped with a very useful slide rule...But the 43mm of the actual models are quite average now and an update was needed, just to keep the spirit of the original one: a massive 46mm or 48mm tool-watch to wear over your flight jacket.
Breitling introduced its Breitling Emergency watch — the first wristwatch with a built-in emergency microtransmitter — in 1995. Since then, the watch has been worn and used by many professional pilots and has played a role in numerous search-and-rescue missions. At Baselworld 2013, Breitling introduced another world-first with its Emergency II, the first watch with a dual frequency locator beacon.
Breitling B55 Connected Chronograph. Breitling’s B55 Connected Chronograph flips the script on the standard smartwatch. Instead of a watch that offers a readout of your phone, the B55 uses your phone to operate the watch, allowing you to set alarms, change time zones, & adjust operating parameters. The B55 can also upload chronograph records to your phone.
Breitling Emergency II w/emergency transponder built in...finally a high end watch that's potentially worth the extra cost for those in some professions. Two transponders built in meaning it broadcasts on two emergency radio frequencies, the old and new. This is the same technology downed aircraft use. Using both emergency systems allows rescuers to pinpoint your location to within yards using a cross fix...U.S. military, State Department, global adventurers, etc. can capitalize on this…
Breitling Avenger Hurricane Watch Hands-On - by Ariel Adams - More awesome shots up now at: aBlogtoWatch.com "At Baselworld 2016, I got to play with the first watch using Breitling's so-called 'Breitlight' case material, which is the Breitling Avenger Hurricane (debuted on aBlogtoWatch). This is a deceptively cool watch even though it clearly isn't for everyone. With that said, I really like it when brands like Breitling produce intentionally niche watches like this that work really well..."
