With a C.O.S.C certification, the quality is tested and assured.

Long-Lasting Power Reserve

With every component perfectly balanced, Breitling introduces an engine capable of an energy reserve of 70 hours. Providing high-performance, the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante is ideal for a busy lifestyle.

Striking Bronze Dial

The Navitimer Rattrapante is available in steel and in a 250-piece, limited edition 18K red gold edition with exclusive bronze dials. The dials are backdrops for the inner bezel and silver-tones counters, classic representations of the Navitimer style.

Transparent Caseback

Encased in a 45mm stainless steel case, these watches are exemplary of Breitling’s proficiency in watchmaking. With a transparent caseback that allows you to watch the intricacies of every component, you can observe the detailed craftsmanship of both models.

Cambered Sapphire Crystal

Glareproofed on both sides, the sapphire crystals provide optimal readability in all circumstances. Whether the sun is shining or a storm brewing, you’ll always be able to read all the relevant information that ensures you are on time to your social engagements.

Breitling highlights their expertise and excellent craftsmanship through the technological advancements introduced with the Rattrapante model. As a 2017 release, these two models represent the brand’s state-of-the-art advancements in watchmaking. Always striving for perfection, these watches provide the utmost quality.

The Navitimer is Breitling’s most emblematic model, consolidating the new split-seconds movement technology developed in-house and the expected durability and refined design that Breitling is known for.

Exceptional In-House Developed Split-Seconds Movement 

Protected by two patents, the Manufacture Breitling Caliber B03 showcases a ground-breaking structure that guarantees the utmost precision, reliability, and sturdiness through its design. Focusing on these characteristics, Breitling has developed this split-seconds movement, which is considered to be one of the hardest watchmaking mechanisms to create.

Containing two superimposed chronograph hands in a central position, the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante allows you to stop one of the hands to measure an immediate time, or split, before it ‘catches up’, or rattraper in French. This movement typically requires an extensive testing and developing phase, and Breitling has achieved a system focused on minimal components and optimal performance to avoid this factor.

Through the action of constant stopping and starting the split-seconds hands, the watch required an isolating system that disconnected these hands to ensure it didn’t take a toll on the level of energy in the watch. Replacing the usual cylindrical pin found in split-seconds mechanisms, Breitling introduced a stamped part that ensures a shape that is more defined and sturdy. Through this innovative component, Breitling has ensured that the split-seconds movement is separate from the power reserve and the timing precision.

In addition, in place of a wheel to stop the split-seconds mechanism, Breitling has surrounded the wheel with an O-ring seal, the system is complicated to produce and can lead to inaccuracy, but the brand’s invention guarantees both an extremely accurate stopping and reliable system due to being simpler to produce.

See how all these innovative and technological components work together to compose this phenomenal watch. Powerful and distinguished, it’s a true representation of Breitling’s expertise:
