Introducing the Breitling Navitimer B01 Cathay Pacific limited-edition

An exclusive timepiece to mark our 76th anniversary – and inspire more incredible journeys to come

Breitling’s legendary Navitimer chronograph has been synonymous with travel and style since it first debuted in 1952. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of this iconic timepiece, Breitling is releasing a new collection of the Navitimer for 2022, and we are delighted to be partnering with the Swiss watchmaker to unveil an exclusive design limited to just 200 individually numbered pieces: the Navitimer B01 Cathay Pacific Limited Edition.

The collaboration marks our own 76th anniversary, and pays tribute to our rich aviation history and our elevation into a premium travel lifestyle brand.

The Navitimer was a true pilot’s watch, featuring an integrated slide rule which enabled essential flight calculations long before flight computers arrived on board. But the Navitimer didn’t just work well in the skies – it also looked great on the wrist. It wasn’t long before the Navitimer was being worn by racing drivers and musical icons, astronauts and stars, evolving from a pilots’ tool into a symbol of transformative personal journeys. “You have graphic elements, you have functional elements, and you have design elements – that’s what makes this watch so emblematic,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern (Read the full interview here).

Cathay Pacific limited-edition

A unique design for Cathay

This gorgeous 43mm collector’s model features the unique Navitimer design, updated for the modern age. Cathay Pacific’s identity has been beautifully incorporated, with our signature Jade green on the watch face, and the words “Cathay Pacific Edition”, its individual number out of 200 engraved around the display caseback. The Cathay Jade face contrasts elegantly with the white subdials and brown alligator leather strap – a warm, nostalgic look that renders this timepiece as suited to everyday wear as it is for the skies.

A style icon, refreshed

New design touches for the 2022 Navitimer include a domed sapphire crystal, evolved slide rule, contrasting polished and brushed finishings, and a redesigned display caseback which reveals the workings of the in-house, COSC-certified Caliber 01 chronograph movement. One particular detail of note for aviation fans is the return of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association logo which graced the original 1952 chronograph.
