Originally developed in 1952 for pilots, the Navitimer has long since reached cult status. Its circular slide rule enables the experienced pilot to calculate important data such as flight time, fuel supply etc., which is why the watch was chosen as the official watch of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) in the United States. Its unique design, however, ensured that the watch became immensely popular amongst the civil population too. Even now 70 years after its original launch the appeal of this model is unrivalled and inspired Breitling to create a re-edition of the 1959 model of the Navitimer reference 806.
