Swiss watch brand, Breitling, and luxury watch retailer, Westime, have partnered to create a boutique exclusive timepiece: the Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 46 Beverly Hills Limited Edition, available at three Breitling boutiques in Southern California, operated by Westime.
The timepiece features the large Navitimer 46mm stainless steel case, which houses a black mother of pearl dial with black subdials, and a black bezel. The darkened dial is offset with white and bright blue accents. Attached to the case is the watch’s well-known seven-row Navitimer stainless steel bracelet with a butterfly clasp.
The watch, known for being the choice of pilots throughout its 70-year history, is equipped with Breitling’s iconic bidirectional rotating bezel with a circular slide rule. The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova. This distinctive watch is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 automatic movement with a 70-hour power reserve. The COSC-certified chronometer features a transparent sapphire caseback, providing a view of the movement.
This exclusive timepiece is limited to 50 pieces. The caseback features etchings of each numbered piece along with the inscription, “Beverly Hills Limited Edition.”
The Navitimer is the most celebrated of all Breitling timepieces and is arguably the foundation of the watch brand. Since its introduction in 1952, it has been the choice of both commercial and recreational pilots because of its iconic circular slide rule, making it able to perform a range of calculations relevant to aviation. The watch with its extra-large case is instantly recognizable and is the favored timepiece of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). The Breitling Navitimer B01 with its 46mm case is arguable the most authentic recreation of the original Navitimer.
The Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 46 Beverly Hills Limited Edition is available at three Southern California locations operated in partnership with Westime: The Breitling Boutique Beverly Hills, at Two Rodeo; Breitling Boutique Los Angeles at Westfield Century City; and Breitling Boutique San Diego at Fashion Valley.
