Kings of the knurl, Breitling, have announced the availability of the Navitimer 1884 Limited Edition, a sexy black chrono with a 46mm case, day/month window, date hand, as well as a 24-hour register at 9 o’clock.
For your money you get a COSC-certified piece and this model – the black on white – is limited to 1,884 watches so you’d better get down to your local watch shop/pilot store.
Expect to pay about $7,500 for the pleasure of owning this Breitling, which, arguably, isn’t much for a nice COSC-certified chrono with date complications. It’s sexy like a chocolate strawberry, to be sure, and I’m really pleased with the understated dial. It’s a unique piece that may make me like Breitling again.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
