Here is a great posting, by WatchFred, who is one of the driving forces behind the new Breitling models.

Fred was in Shanghia (on stage with Georges Kern), for the launch of the new Navitimer 8, and he shares some thoughts about the new watches that have been released, and those to come.

Her's the posting --



: So what do we think of Breitling's first re-issue of the Kern
: era, the Navitimer 8.

: Here is the posting, from Georges Kern, on Instagram --

: And his description -- The first baby is here. Finally! A new
: classic Breitling Pilots watch, the Navitimer 8 with our amazing
: in house B01 Chronograph movement. Of course Chronometer
: certified. 43mm of diameter. Absolutely beautiful elegant-sports
: mat and polished finishing with the typical Breitling
