In the 2014 Basel Watch Fair, Breitling launched 5 brand new watches, including two Dual Time watches and another 2 41-mm and 44-mm chronograph watches. What’s more, in the Bingley series, a Bingley B04 Dual Time was released.
1961, Breitling custom-made a special 24-hour 806. In 1962, American Cott Carpenter, an astronaut, wore a Breitling 806, rode on Aurora 7 and orbited around the Earth for 7 round, making Breitling 806 become an Astronaut watches. Under this astronaut event, Breitling started a new line to produce 24-hour Navitimer and named after Cosmonaute. In 1969, Breitling become cooperated with Tag Heuer and developed Calibre 11 movement. Since then, it began to put this so-called home-made movement on its watches. Before that you could see Valjoux 72, Valjoux7736 and Venus 178 were assembled on the old watches. The new Breitling movement removed a small dial and added a date display. And also remove the crown to the left side, which caused massive dispute. Sooner, it went back to the Valjoux movement and change 7736 into 7740 by adding new features.
Except what we have discussed above, let’s take a look at the NaviTimer GMT 48. In the all NaviTimer series, it has plenty of Dual Time watches, but this NaviTimer GMT 48 is the first one that is fitted with a home-made movement. GMT 48 has a stronger performance than the other NaviTimer watches. It also elevates 46mm to a 48mm case. This huge case has a B04 movement that can work for 70 hours properly. In addition, two dials are available: the black and a silver one. The interesting thing is that GMT 48 will launch a limited 200 watches with black dial and red gold. And if you want to buy a replica Breitling watch, the Breitling Navitimer A2432212/B726/441X/A20BA.1 mechanical men watch is a great choice for you!
