The new Breitling Navitimer Boeing 747 retails for $9,400.
Luxury watchmaker Breitling is launching a unique limited-edition Navitimer watch commemorating the legendary Boeing 747. Celebrating the aircraft's revolutionary aviation heritage, the company promises to create 747 timepieces.
As Boeing prepares to release its last-ever jumbo and discontinue production of the 747, the watch company is producing a unique model called the Navitimer Boeing 747.
The plane, later called the "queen of the sky," was first launched in 1969. It was a real revolution in passenger air travel when the company introduced a double-deck airliner capable of carrying twice as many passengers and flying more than 5,000 nautical miles.
“What better way to remember a revolutionary jumbo jet than with a revolutionary pilot’s chronograph,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “The Boeing 747 brought style to the skies, just as the Navitimer brought the spirit of aviation to style-savvy watch enthusiasts.”
The new model's dial is designed in a classic color palette referring to the 747. The watch features a cream-colored center, black sub-dials, and a red and white line with blue accents. "Boeing 747" is emblazoned on the inner scale, and "One of 747" is engraved on the back cover. The new Navitimer version has a power reserve of 70 hours.
The unique model is already available on the watch company's website. The Breitling Navitimer Boeing 747 has a retail price of $9,400.
