Breitling Navitimer Super Constellation
In more recent times, Breitling has sponsored various classic aircraft, and last month the company announced plans to help fund the restoration of its legendary Super Constellation aircraft, one of the world’s three remaining flight-worthy Super Connies. The brand is also launching a limited edition of its legendary Navitimer aviation chronograph, from whose sale a $229,022 will go for the association.
The stainless steel case measures 42mm, has an AR-coated sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 30 meters. The dial comes in black only. Movement is the Swiss automatic Breitling caliber 23, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC, selfwinding, high-frequency (28,800 vibrations per hour), 25 jewels. 1/4th of a second chronograph, 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers. Bearing an inscription on the dial that reads Breitling Super Constallation, the watch has a golden B logo that’s reminiscent of the one used by the company back in the 1950s.
Designed for intensive professional use, Breitling Chronospace boasts an impressive array of functions that are useful to pilots – 1/100th of a second chronograph with split times, alarm, countdown, dual timezone display with independent alarm, 24-hour military time, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), perpetual calendar – all powered by a chronometer-certified Breitling SuperQuartz movement that is ten times more accurate than an ordinary quartz caliber.
