Go into 2020 wearing a timepiece like no other. New in from Breitling, the Navitimer B03 Chronograph Rattrapante 45 exudes sophistication and style while simultaneously boasting ultimate precision and reliability and uses some of the best technology in horology to date.
Since the brand introduced the first modern chronograph 85 years ago, their influence on watch design has been incalculable and second to none. Having launched earlier this month, their newest timepiece features the brand's interpretation of one of watchmaking’s grandest complications and is a cutting edge piece that ensures maximum precision, sturdiness, and reliability. The rattrapante is one of the most sophisticated complications in all of watchmaking but to put simply, with two superimposed central chronograph hands, this time piece can measure two elapsed times simultaneously.
Visually, this piece is exceedingly sleek and sophisticated. The Navitimer B03 Chronograph Rattrapante 45 has an 18k red gold case and is distinguished with a Stratos Gray dial which makes it it very impressive aesthetically indeed. Its hour markers and hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, which guarantees legibility in all lighting conditions. The watch has a bidirectional rotating bezel with the circular slide rule that has long been associated with Breitling’s Navitimers. The Navitimer B03 Chronograph Rattrapante 45 offers another exquisite detail. Normally, a Breitling Navitimer features a stylized “B” logo with an anchor symbol adorning the base of the chronograph hands. However, with this piece there is a subtle refinement as the the logo has been divided between two hands. The B is on the red chronograph hand, while the anchor sits on the split-second hand. As a result, the two elements of the logo are separated when the split-second hand is stopped and reform when the hands realign with each other.
The watch, with its striking 18k red gold case, is presented on a black alligator leather strap with a pin buckle. This classic and stylish strap allows for versatility and elevation for every outfit. With this watch, go straight from the office to that country weekend away without a hitch!
