As the latest addition to the Navitimer line, the new Montbrillant Légende chronograph is also the largest in this emblematic collection, with an imposing stature of 47 mm. But that is certainly not the only special feature of its design. By smoothly integrating the case and bracelet, Breitling has endowed this model with flowing, balanced lines that further emphasize its unique character. In terms of the choice of finish, Montbrillant Légende also reinforces its singularity by offering - in addition to the steel version - a steel and rose gold version in which the crown, pushpieces and bezel are all crafted in this precious metal.
Faithful to the aeronautical spirit cherished by Breitling, the Montbrillant Légende is equipped not only with the famous circular slide rule, but also on its caseback with a conversion scale for the main aviation weights and measures. The styling and layout of the dial are resolutely inspired by the 1940s. The same goes for the hands, the traditional central 1/100th of an hour indication, as well as the horizontal totalizers at 9 and 3 o'clock characteristic of Breitling Caliber 23, the mechanism driving this superlative Navitimer.
