Swiss aviation watch expert Breitling is expanding on its 1959 Re-Edition Navitimer offerings, this time releasing two limited-edition models crafted from luxury materials.

Available now in either platinum or 18k red gold, with a blue or black dial respectively, Breitling’s vintage Navitimer returns in a highly-accurate reissue. While the materials used have been updated, most of the watch’s traits have been kept true to its original, including the 41mm case size, the Plexiglass crystal instead of sapphire, the 1/5 second/30 minute/12 hour chronograph, and even the exact number of beads on the bezel (94, to be exact). As the 1959 model predates Breitling’s automatic movements, the brand has kept the Re-Edition a manual wind, though the movement has been updated to an in-house B09 movement with a 70-hour power reserve.

For those interested. both the platinum and red gold 1959 Re-Edition Navitimers are now available, retailing for $39,000 USD and $22,000 USD respectively. Act fast though as the platinum edition is limited to only 59 pieces, while the red gold version is limited to 159 pieces. Head over to Breitling’s website to learn more now.
