The new Breitling Replica 38mm Navitimerthree-hander would seem to be a direct response to his strategy and plays the unisex card to great effect. Ideal for men with smaller wrists and women who like watches with a more virile personality.
THE NAVITIMER 1 AUTOMATIC 38 IS NOT A CHRONOGRAPH…!
The first obvious fact is that, unlike the veteran Navitimer, the Navitimer 1 is not a chronograph. Before everybody starts jumping up and down insisting that the Navitimer was and always will be a chronograph, Breitling Replica Watches points out that there was, in fact, a three-hand Navitimer produced in the 1950s, known as Ref. 66. With no pushers on the case band and no counters on the dial, the highly instrument/tool nature of the watch is erased allowing it to redefine its character as a more elegant.
A UNISEX CASE
With a diameter of 38mm, the Navitimer 1 plays the unisex card to perfection. Designed to appeal to men and women, the deliberate genderless nature of Navitimer 1 is classic Kern.
MY TAKE ON THIS WATCH, AS A WOMAN
When I first saw the three Navitimer I Replica Watches, I was drawn to the red gold and steel model with its unconventional gold beaded bezel and warm, creamy dial. But the white background on the date window changed my mind and I went for the black and grey dial with the less disruptive date window.
