Wearing a professional watch like a Breitling Navitimer is a delicate straddle between formal and rugged wear. Generally, wearing big, bulky watches to the boardroom is like wearing a tee to a formal evening gala. But the Breitling Navitimer, although in every aspect bulky and full of overwhelming features like a self-winding chronograph, triple-dial functions and the Manufacture Caliber 01, is just as elegant as the best dress watch. The numerals are laid out neatly against a deep classy brown backdrop. The lines are streamlined and at most fashioned in orderly symmetry. The bronze dial only adds to the elegance of this watch. Likewise, the stainless steel bracelet pulls this watch towards a more chic and graceful attire than a casual everyday getup.
Breitling is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
