Navitimer Super 8 / Breitling


The Breitling Navitimer Super 8 case measures 46mm and 50mm when you include the bidirectional bezel (so 50mm all-in). The screw-locked crown is located on the left-hand side, which is another homage to the 637 whose crown was located in the same place for easy manoeuvring. The Super 8 is available in stainless steel with a black dial or titanium with a green dial. The movement is the Breitling B20 which is based on the calibre MT5612, which is the same movement used by Tudor in the Black Bay and Pelagos. The calibre B20 is chronometer certified and has an impressive power reserve of 70 hours — via Hodinkee
