A chronograph function is a tool for accurately measuring the passage of time such as a stop watch. On Analogue watches you will usually have independent sweep second, and minute hand which can be started, stopped and reset.
A tachymeter is simply a means of converting elapsed time (in seconds per unit) to speed (in units per hour). A tachymeter is a scale sometimes inscribed around the rim of an analogue watch with a chronograph. It can be used to calculate your current speed of motion based on the time you have been travelling.
Navitimer Sliding Rule
Normally the tachymeter works independent of the unit of measure and so you have to keep to the same scale IE miles, or kilometers, through out your calculation. But the Navitimer changes that. The tachymeter is the third scale in from the watch edge but the sliding bezel scale allows you to simply convert units from miles to kilometers for example or even to calculate general multiplication or division.
Your Breitling Navitimer-B01 Chronograph watch AB0121211G1P1 will arrive in its official Breitling box and 2 years manufacturer’s warranty, making it the perfect gift and keeping it immaculate through time.

Léon Breitling focused on chronographs, which were increasingly in demand at the time for industrial, military, and scientific applications as well as for athletic organizations. In 1889, Léon Breitling was granted a patent for a simplified model, which distinguished itself from its competitors through its sleek design, uncomplicated manufacturing process, and straightforward maintenance.
Awards followed, establishing the company’s reputation and prompting a move to a new factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1892. L. Breitling, Montbrillant Watch Manufacturing soon had 60 employees focused on making precise, innovative timepieces.
An Obsession With Quality
Breitling has its very own place among watch brands: the highly exclusive ‘stronghold’ of technical watches, mainly chronographs. A longstanding partner of aviation, a field where reliability and precision play a vital role, the brand has always devoted premier importance to the quality of its products, designed to withstand intensive use in the most trying conditions.
Breitling is a chronograph specialist that has played a key role in the technical development of this complication, including by inventing the two independent pushpieces and by presenting the first selfwinding chronograph (1969).
Breitling cases are designed to accompany professionals on their most extreme missions. They must therefore provide maximum protection in case of impacts, and each detail of their construction has been developed and tested to withstand intensive use.
Breitling chronographs and wrist instruments are all equipped with sapphire crystals that are glareproofed on both sides. This guarantees extreme sturdiness, combined with optimal readability of the information in all circumstances.
Breitling bracelets are distinguished by their proven sturdiness, their comfort on the wrist, their exclusive design and their high-end finishing. So as to enable them to withstand the forces of traction and torsion (pulling and twisting) to which they will be subjected on a daily basis, the firm has developed highly specific production methods and technologies.
