Throughtout the 1950’s and 1960’s many Navitimers featured the logo of the AOPA.
A reinterpretation of this historical model, the Breitling Navitimer AOPA replica watch has a 42mm stainless steel case. The AOPA logo in gold is placed at the 12 o’clock position. Like the 50’s and 60’s models the watch has the slide rule indicator and chronograph for timing events for up to 12 hours.It comes on either a leather strap or stainless steel bracelet.
