The model reference is A13022.1The Navitimer was first introduced in 1952, the Navitimer provided pilots and air crews with a highly innovative chronograph design. This particular one with this dial configuration is now discontinued and is a sought after model.

It has an automatic winding Breitling calibre 13 movement which is the Breitling version of an ETA Valjoux 7750, with 25 jewel and operating at 28,800 vph and has a 42 hour power reserve.
