    This is and always has been my favourite Breitling, wearing it as I write..... Most of my favourite models are discontinued such as the Ti Avenger Chrono and Blacksteel Skyland, of the current line up I only like the Seawolf.

    I've had a few Breitling's over the years, I'm less keen on some of the newer stuff, but they still make a good watch.

    Well I'm a fan and very keen on my Navi'



    I wish the date was quick-set though.

    I have a long term hankering for a B-1 that I must satisfy one day.

    I don't think you can beat a Navi - iconic.

    This was my first "serious" watch purchase. It has now gone to a new home in Finland but I still look out for another on the various forums. Have never seen the same model up for sale. Datora 2034.3 from the late 60s.

    I'm more into their vintage work. Perhaps a little more subdued and less shiny...

    This one was a present to my Father, from his parents, on his 21st Birthday. I had it restored for him for his 70th Birthday (It had laid unused in a draw for years) and now it is his daily wear.


    This is mine and is a sure keeper. Wearing it today in fact (photo taken 10 minutes ago approx)

    I used to a 1998 pre-chronometer version of this.
    I flipped it to put funds towards a new house. It was battered, had two full services 18 months apart, and it never kept any reasonable time compared to other watches I still have.

    But, every time I see one, damn do I wish I hadn't sold it. something about the matt finish, especially at issue when everything else was so shiny from Breitling, it made this one extra special, well, to me anyway

    Two nice watches (Your father's looks remarkably like my Seamaster 30), but I don't think there's any watch better looking than a vintage Navitimer personally, nice to hear yours gets worn too

    I had a Chrono Avenger which I quite liked.

    I do like the Blacksteels - Can one of the aficionados please remind me which is the less than enornous auto chronograph version please?

    With a couple of minor design adjustments this could have been the ultimate Breitling. In no particular order, I would have liked to seen a 41mm case WR up to 300M and a bigger crown.
