When Georges Kern arrived at Breitling after a tenure at IWC, he had a mission: to remake Breitling so it wasn't just the brand with jets and scantily clad models. As Mr. Kern himself said, "It was too macho, too 80s." Originally part of the Navitimer family, the Aviator 8 was the first step in changing Breitling's existing image and making it more palatable for a larger audience. 

How? 

This version of the Aviator dropped the slide rule, instead replacing it with a rotating bezel. In addition, it eschewed the bright, polished metals that the brand has become synonymous with for a simple brushed stainless steel seen on most other high end watches. The only polished metal is on the caseback for the Aviator 8 logo.

As for this particular versions place in the extended Navitimer 8 lineup, the Chronograph version features both a chronograph as well as the Day-Date function in its ETA 7750-based Calibre B13 movement. On the wrist, like any other Breitling, it feels substantial - even at 43 mm. With the thick bezel, it can even feel just as substantial as 46 mm Navitimer 01s. It's the rare watch that simultaneously takes its place with a legendary lineup while at the same time forging its own distinct path at Breitling.
