What’s cooler than being cool? ICE BLUE! The people have spoken and made it clear that Ice Blue dials are in. When Breitling announced the ice blue Chronomat in Summer 2021, the watch world went nuts. Since then, the clamor for light blue dial watches has only increased in ferocity with the Tiffany Nautilus, Omega x Swatch Mission to Uranus, and even Breitling’s own Top Time Triumph LE lighting up the internet. So, watch fans should rejoice at the news of the all-new Breitling B01 Navitimer Chronographs which include two all-new references featuring the iciest dials around.
Situated in a thinner case than previous versions, the new Ice Blue 2022 Navitimers are available in a 43mm size on either strap or bracelet. Black subdials and a bidirectional slide rule bezel ensure a high-contrast look while the date feature has been moved from the controversial 4:30 spot and newly integrated as part of the 6 o’clock subdial. Additionally, the Breitling logo has been updated from Brietling’s cursive “B”, to the famous Breitling wings and the second-hand has also been cleaned up with a more streamlined shape. Finally, the crown and pushers have undergone a slight adjustment, with a slightly more onion-shaped crown and smaller, flatter pushers.
All-in, the Ice Blue Navitimer might be the answer to watch fans prayers for a high-end, non-limited edition light blue dial option.
