In celebrating its 125th anniversary, Breitling unveiled the Breitling Navitimer 125e Anniversaire.
The legendary Breitling Navitimer chronograph has been a favorite with pilots with its circular slide rule designed to compute all airborne navigation calculations.
The Breitling Navitimer 125e Anniversaire is a highly distinctive version of this cult-object, specially designed by Breitling to mark the company’s five quarter-centuries.
This limited edition of 2,009 pieces is distinguished by a particularly understated and dynamic aesthetic.
Watchmakers around the globe started to pre announce their master pieces for the BaselWorld 2009 taking place in March. The new watches are still bold for 2009 despite the economic crisis. Take for instance the Aquanautic Super King Diving Tourbillon. The case in titanium and 18kt rose gold measures a super-sized 52mm.
Besides its size the Aquanautic Super King features some cool mechanical technology and is water proof to depths for 300m.
The BaselWorld 2009 draws nearer and announcements of new watches appear more and more. Porsche Design for instance will show a new limited edition chronograph.
I continue to be in love with all black watches and the Porsche P6920 Split-Seconds Chronograph is all black.
The Japanese LED watch shop and label Tokyo Flash unveiled an extreme minimalist LED watch dubbed Heko.
Heko wraps around your wrist like a bracelet and has hidden LED lights under a mirrored dial segments.
Pushing one of the big buttons reveal the cryptic time display. Hours are presented on the upper screen. The hours three, six, nine and twelve in the same positions as on a clock face. Hours one and two are in between, a combination of lit LEDs show the hour.
