Navitimer ..... My First Breitling

I have been wanting to get a Breitling Navitimer for quite some time and the new B01 43's that were recently released really caught my attention. I've always been a Rolex fan but with watches selling at the ridiculous prices of 2-4 times retail it was high time to venture into other brands.

Big shout out to @GST15 for recommending Richard Wells @ Saltzmans he gave me a fair discounted price and no sales tax.

I tried on the new Navitimers today - they really knocked it out of the park with this one. The 43s wear much smaller than you'd think. Breitling is on a roll at the moment!

Love this I’ve also been considering this model and I had seen one with the blue face online which I liked but would need to see it in person, is the strap a buckle or clasp? Do you have the option to make it buckle or clasp?
Looks great health to wear it

I'll be giving him a call for a 35mm Navitimer for my wife in the next few weeks. Thanks for your community service!
