When asked about what you want to do when you grow up and if you happen to be a boy, you may have come up with the answer like an aviator, which seems so attractive to a little boy. But when years passes and you are going toward another direction, you might feel a little upset about the lost dream. However, If this sounds like you, then you can find some memory and comfort back from the brilliant Breitling Navitimer Watches.
The Breitling Navitimer Watch is thought of as the original watch for airline pilots. It was one of the first chronograph watches with a circular slide rule on the bezel. The watch soon became a huge success after a model was specially designed for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). It features the AOPA logo and is made available for sale to their members. The Navitimer model was once again re-designed when astronaut Scott Carpenter suggested to Breitling craftsman that the 12 hour numerical dial be changed to a 24 hour dial.
The brilliant idea of this design comes from the absence of night and day conditions that are inherent in space travel. Breitling was quick to incorporate the design changes and the watch, which was actually worn by Carpenter on a space mission, later became known as the Breitling Cosmonaute Navitimer.
Other popular timepieces in the Navitimer series include the Navitimer Montbrillan, Navitimer Chronomatic, Navitimer World and the Navitimer Heratiget.
The basic Breitling Navitimer watch is equiped with a self-winding chronograph enclosed in a steel case. The face has black dials with silver sub-dials and a tang-type buckle clasp for the leather strap. Also, different colors of the watches are available for choices according to your own interest.
The Breitling Navitimer watches are sold at prices ranging from about $5000 for a basic Navitimer, to over $20,000 for a Montbrillant in platinum. However, there are excellent deals to be found on the web, if you do some research work. Besides, fabulous replica versions of these Breitling Navitimer watches are also offered by lots of online retailers at prices around 100 dollars.
