Breitling is proud to present the elegant 35-millimetre Navitimer Automatic, designed for women of style, action, and purpose. Reflecting more than 65 years of history, the modern take on the Navitimer Automatic 35 has a distinctly sophisticated personality inspired by some of the most impressive Breitlings of the 1950s. Women who wear the Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 will be wearing a timepiece that not only reflects their unique stylish flair but also carries on one of watchmaking’s greatest traditions.
The Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 is the ultimate statement of elegance and the perfect accessory for any occasion, whether it’s a meeting in the boardroom or a weekend getaway. With a choice of colourful dials, a mother-of-pearl dial set with diamonds, and alligator leather straps, these stunning new models have been designed for the cosmopolitan, stylish woman on the go. With a high-performance mechanical movement at its heart and iconic design elements, the Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 writes a new chapter in the history of this collection.
The Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 takes the design inspiration for its striking, sophisticated beaded bezel from the Navitimer Ref. 806. The clean three-hand dial is an affectionate nod to the Ref. 66, which was launched in the 1950s, and its iconic circular slide rule holds a special place in the hearts of Breitling enthusiasts everywhere. The red-tipped second hand contributes to the watch’s excellent legibility.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern is enthusiastic about the new release: “With the Navitimer Automatic 35, we have created a watch that reflects what women have been telling us: They’ve asked for a stylish, smaller Navitimer that doesn’t sacrifice heritage or functionality. It needed to be recreated just for women and suitable for any occasion. With different cases and strap options, we’ve introduced exactly what modern women look for in a watch, even those who may not have previously considered wearing a Breitling.”
The Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 is available in four different versions, each powered by the Breitling Caliber 17, which delivers a power reserve of about 38 hours. Like all Breitling watches, they are COSC-certified chronometers, an independent confirmation of their precision. The first is offered with a 35-millimetre stainless-steel case with a choice of a blue dial presented with a blue alligator leather strap, a copper dial with a brown alligator leather strap, or a silver dial with a burgundy alligator leather strap. The straps feature a pin or folding buckle, and each version of the watch is also available on a stainless-steel Navitimer bracelet with a folding clasp. The second version also features a 35-millimetre stainless-steel case with a white mother-of-pearl dial and diamond hour markers. It has a burgundy alligator leather strap with either a pin or folding buckle and is also available with a stainless-steel Navitimer bracelet with a folding clasp. The Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 is also available as a two-tone watch with a 35-millimetre stainless-steel case and a luxurious 18 k red gold bidirectional rotating bezel. Its white mother-of-pearl dial is highlighted by diamond hour markers, and the watch is presented on a brown alligator leather strap with a pin or folding buckle or a two-tone Navitimer bracelet in stainless steel and 18 k red gold with a folding clasp. Last but not least is the Navitimer Automatic 35 in 18 k red gold with a white mother-of-pearl dial and diamond hour markers. This striking watch is delivered with either a brown alligator leather strap with an 18 k red gold pin or folding buckle or an 18 k red gold Navitimer bracelet with a butterfly clasp. It’s worth noting that there are two additional strap options that can be purchased separately: exotic alligator leather straps in either green or gold brown.
The Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 is a worthy new member of Breitling’s iconic Navitimer family. Perfectly sized and offering a sublime blend of elegance and on-trend style, it is designed for women drawn both to the beauty of the watch and to its unequalled heritage.
Breitling is under the spotlight with the women’s version of the aviation legend Navitimer model family, which stands out with its new 35mm diameter case.
We would not be wrong to say that the Navitimer is the signature model family for Breitling. Considered as the cornerstone of the brand’s aviation-themed designs, Navitimer is among the iconic models of the watch world today. The collection, known only for men’s models until 2018, started to include women’s models with 38mm versions introduced in the same year. The new Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 model family introduced this year with a variety of case, dial, and strap options takes the feminine interpretation of the brand’s iconic model to the next level. The model we have chosen for you from the new series dazzles with its stainless steel/rose gold combination and mother-of-pearl dial.
The new model comes in a case measuring 35mm in diameter and 9.92mm in height. According to Breitling, the 38mm diameter Navitimer model family introduced in 2018 is also a women’s collection. However, it is worth noting that the 35mm diameter measurement looks much more like a women’s watch. The case comes with an 18K rose gold bezel following the Two-Tone concept. On the other hand, leaving the crown in stainless steel is a bit against this concept. The case features an AR-coated, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a Breitling signed solid case back at the rear. Let us remind you that the case is water-resistant to 30 meters only.
For the dial of the model, it is possible to say that it is the only feminine component of the model, after the 35mm diameter. The dial comes with a mother-of-pearl background. Accompanied by pink gold-tone details following the bicolor concept, the dial features diamond-set hour markers as well. The red-tipped second hand and the red details used on the internal scale, which is a Navitimer classic, are the elements that remain true to the DNA of the model and add integrity to the design. Finally, the absence of a date window combines the striking beauty of the dial with perfect symmetry.
Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 Collection comes to life with the brand’s Caliber 17 movement. 25-jewels C.O.S.C. certified automatic movement operates at a frequency of 4Hz (28.800vph) and offers 38 hours of power reserve when fully wound.
The version we selected for the review comes with a metal bracelet made of 18K rose gold and stainless steel components, in line with the concept. In the Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 Collection, which has already reached sales points, there are five more versions offering different case, dial, and strap options.
