One of the first Baselworld novelties to grab our attention this year comes from the good people at Breitling.
On their radar? Men with smaller wrists and ladies who don’t mind a touch of masculinity on their elegant timepiece. That’s the motivation behind the Swiss watchmaker’s latest Navitimer 1 Automatic 38, the first men’s and women’s piece to arrive under the watch of CEO, Georges Kern.
The timepiece features a svelte 38mm x 10mm case which isn’t exactly small in reality, but smaller when compared to the 41mm Navitimer offerings set to launch at Basel this year. It’s a nice move from Breitling considering that many men are today moving towards smaller watches with sophsticated aesthetic.
The Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 comes in two variations of steel and steel and gold which is further paired to three dial colours of silver, blue and black.
A Breitling caliber 17 automatic movement looks after the hours, minutes and seconds functions alongside a date window at the 6 o’clock mark. Power reserve for this unit comes in at a reliable 40 hours whilst water resistance is rated at 30 metres.
An alligator strap with contrast stitching polishes things off nicely.
Local pricing for the Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 in steel-black will be AU$5,620 whilst the steel-blue will retail for AU$5,620 and the steel-red gold for AU$7,590.
