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." This new Navitimer 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 Navitimer 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 Navitimer 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.
