Breitling introduction of a new member of the famed Navitimer collection with a new movement and the addition of a split-second chronograph complication. Containing the new in-house-made Caliber B03 automatic split-second chronograph movement, the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante adds an uncommon complication to the Breitling Navitimer Replica Watches, and a complication that I don’t think I’ve previously seen from the brand.
Breiting claims that while the B03’s split-second chronograph has been specially designed to use parts which are simpler to produce than more historic rattrapante models, this also provides the mechanism with more precise and reliable use. I say this because many split-second chronographs, given the delicate nature of their construction, are not celebrated for their precision or reliability. Note the fun design element where the Swiss Breitling Replica Watches anchor B logo is split, so that half of it is on the main chronograph seconds hand, and the other is on the rattrapante hand.
Rattrapante chronographs are a bit difficult to explain without demonstrating them. The idea is that a main chronograph is supplemented with an additional Best Breitling Replica Watches Reviews chronograph seconds hand. A pusher in the crown is used to activate this additional chronograph seconds hand, which can be used to independently measure a one-minute interval while the main 12-hour chronograph is in operation.
The Breitling Replica Watches Swiss Movement Caliber B03 automatic chronograph movement is COSC Chronometer-certified and operates at 4Hz with a power reserve of 70 hours. The movement features the time, date, and 12-hour chronograph with split-second “rattrapante” functionality. Otherwise, this is very much your traditional Navitimer dial, only in brown.
To launch the caliber B03, Breitling chose the 45mm-wide Navitimer watch with the brown dial in two case materials: steel, and 18ct red gold as a limited edition. The brown dials are matched to padded brown crocodile straps. Though Breitling will also offer the Navitimer Rattrapante on a leather or rubber strap.
