John Travolta Breitling Navitimer

Black dial Navitimer with chronograph

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!

Criss Angel Breitling Diamond Super Avenger

When you work with the public like Criss Angel does, every part of your outfit needs to be carefully adjusted. Criss is playing with the human mind, doing tricks and performances that would surprise even the most skeptic viewer and he needs distractions and advantages that he can use during his shows. His outfit is also part of the performance, so there is no surprise that his watch is as special as the person wearing it.

Breitling has a wide variety of watches, each one with different features and designs, but the Diamond Super Avenger one that Criss is wearing is truly attention grabbing. Surrounded by diamonds and with a professional, but elegant appearance, Criss can wear it not only during his shows  but also during other public appearances.

The watch has a resistant, classy steel case that will not get easily broken or scratched. It is water resistant and it will work perfectly fine up to 300 m deep in the water. With a non-slip grip, every screw is adjusted to prevent water and dirt from going inside, not to mention how much this adds to the elegant look of the watch. The chronograph is self-winding and it is certified by COSC, so it is truly reliable in terms of precision.




The classic version of the watch can be adjusted to fit your needs, but Criss wanted something truly spectacular so he made sure that the strap is not only made from the best steel available, but also decorated with dozens of small diamonds that increase not only the value, but also the uniqueness of the watch. This, of course, does not make the watch less suitable for dangerous tricks; it is still as resistant and reliable as any other piece.

The case of the watch is also decorated with diamonds, and the bezel is unidirectional and ratcheted. The crystal of the watch is just as important as the rest, as it can destroy the entire piece if it gets easily scratched. Luckily, it is made from cambered sapphire and it is glareproofed both sides. What does this mean? There’s no chance that a reflection in his watch will destroy his tricks, and this is exactly what he needs. The watch keeps its appearance and design but it will never become an inconvenient.

Although it is made from strong and resistant materials, the watch is quite light and comfortable to wear, with a weight of only 150.10 gr without the strap. Of course, the weight can increase slightly depending on the elements that you decide to add on the watch, but this is a very solid yet appealing base to begin with.

The Super Avenger watch will put anyone in the center of attention, as it is truly one of the pieces that can’t be easily forgotten. Depending on the strap that you choose you can make it a discreet watch for the evening or a glowing one for a show; either way, it will look perfect.

Bear Grylls Breitling Emergency Watch

If you ever watched Bear Grylls’s show, you were probably surprised by the strong will and skills that he has. He can handle any extreme situation, he will go until the end of the world and back just to test his limits and he will do things that for us are unimaginable. With all this, it’s clear that he needs extraordinary equipment that he can count on at any time and in any condition, starting from his clothes to his accessories.

Bear Grylls was seen, more than a few times, wearing the Breitling emergency watch, and this made many people wonder what is so special about this watch and why he chose to wear it from so many other options available. We have the answer!

Black and Blue Breitling Emergency Watches

To begin with, it is easy to notice the special appearance of the watch. Many emergency watches are too big or with a strange design, but not Breitling. The strap of the watch is also made from high quality, high resistance materials. No matter where you go (maybe a trip through the forest?) you will not damage it easily.  Made from titanium and with a water resistance of up to 5 bars, it is difficult to break this watch by mistake. If you are on a special mission at night and you don’t want to be noticed by anyone, you can choose the watch that is made from black titanium and that comes with an anti-glare look. In this way no light will reflect in your watch to blow away your cover.

The watch is unique for many reasons, one of them being that it is the first watch with an integrated dual frequency Personal Locator Beacon, which is very helpful in situations when you might want to be found by the rescue team. The Emergency function can issue alerts and it can tell the people of your choice when you are in danger. At the same time, it can help them find you and bring you back to safety. Considering how many times Bear Grylls decided to face the wilderness alone, there’s no surprise that he preferred this watch instead of a regular, elegant, but useless one.

As you can easily picture, this watch is more accurate than most of other accessories on the market. It shows the times ten times more accurate than standards similar watches thanks to the SuperQuartz movement, and you can take full advance of the calendar and program it with 4 years ahead. In this way you will be always prepared in your missions outside the city and you will be never taken by surprise by any event. The battery will keep the watch working for 2-3 years, so you will not find yourself without a functioning watch in the middle of something important.

Overall, it is one of the best watches that you can choose if you want to be as well prepared as Bear Grylls is for any situation.
