You may have forgotten your toothbrush (hopefully not your passport!), but you won't have gone anywhere this summer without your favourite timepiece clasped to your wrist - and another one in your suitcase, if you’re lucky!
Tool watches have long been the companion of military personnel, divers, pilots and explorers, and at one time were even vital to their job. In this series, we interview professionals and discuss the role their timepiece plays in their life.
We thought they had gone out of style, dropped off the radar, been run out of town by the arbiters of classicism and good taste. But not so fast... not only are super-sized watches alive and well, they are actually gaining ground, much to the delight of a fanbase who expect their timepiece to be jumbo.
Made famous by its circular slide rule, used to perform airborne navigation calculations, the Breitling Navitimer ranks among the legendary chronographs that have conquered pilots and watch collectors alike - a love affair that began in 1952, and is still going strong today.
This new version takes its cue from the original design, launched in 1994, with features that include rectangular, luminous hands and a quarter-seconds scale to measure short intervals.
