Originally announced in January, Breitling’s new retro Navitimer 1 Airline Editions are now in stock at Breitling boutiques. The image (shown above) was taken the flagship Breitling in New York located at 575 Madison Avenue last month, during the launch of the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Norton Edition. From left to right are the Navitimer 1 TWA, PAN AM, and SwissAir Editions.

The Airline Editions come in a stainless steel Navitimer case that measures 43 mm x 14.22 mm and is powered by a Breitling B01 in-house chronograph movement which beats at 4Hz and has a 70-hour power reserve.

Each version has its respective logo printed on the sapphire caseback. See our original coverage for more details. The weight is 120 grams without strap or bracelet.

Navitimers are synonymous with pilots and airline travel and these three pieces have that 1950s and 1960s nostalgia factor, and of the three, only Swiss Air still exists.

Retail is $8,275 on a vintage-style leather strap; $9,160 on a stainless steel mesh bracelet; or $9,225 on a stainless steel Air Racer bracelet.
