John Travolta is one of the best dressed actors from Hollywood, so there is no surprise that his accessories are always classy and one of a kind. He was seen more than a few times wearing a gorgeous Breitling Navitimer watch, and we understand why he made this choice; the watch is a perfect fit for his personality and his clothing preferences.
The Breitling Navitimer watch is a classic, and it is one of the favorite pieces worn by pilots and those who have aeronautics as passion since more than 60 years. The watch was first made in 1952, and although the design that the watch has today is almost identical to the original one, there are many improvements in the structure and the quality of the materials.
What makes the watch stand out is the high quality steel case and the black dial with red seconds hands. Travolta is wearing his Navitimer model AB012012-BB01BK with a black leather strap, but there are many versions available starting from brown leather to stainless steel. The watch itself can also be found in red gold version with different dial colors. No matter the materials, the Navitimer is a truly reliable piece that is not only good looking, but also of an outstanding performance.
It is water resistant like most of the Breitling watches and it can resist to a pressure of 3 bars, which is more than enough for regular daily use. The bezel is bidirectional and the crystal of the watch is as resistant as the rest of it, made from cambered sapphire and glare-proofed both sides. This means that no matter where you are and how you wear the watch, there will be no disturbing reflection on its surface. We understand why this would be so important for someone like John Travolta who is in front of the cameras more often than not.
For someone who doesn’t want to worry about changing the batteries of the watch, the Navitimer is perfect since it is selfwinding mechanical. It has a power reserve of at least 42 hours, more than enough for any situation. It works on the 2nd timezone and it also shows the date, not only the time. Its weight without the strap is 112 gr, so it is light enough to be comfortable and heavy enough to look good on any wrist.
On the market you will find plenty of versions of the Navitimer available, in different colors and made from different materials, but all of them have something in common: they are timeless pieces that will not only last forever, but they will also make a statement for the person who is wearing them.
No wonder that John Travolta is so attached to his Navitimer that he is wearing it both on the red carpet and when he is on a casual meeting outside. There is probably no other piece that would look as good as this one on his wrist!
