Hello,

I am about to purchase a 43mm Navitimer 01 and the dealer has both Navitimers below. One says Breitling and Navitimer in small font and the other one has the chronometer word added and the letters as well as the logo is bigger. I like the 2 liner as it looks less cluttered and you can see a lot more of the dial but at the same time I also like the 3 liner as it’s easier to see but you see less of the dial. Which one would you guys get?. Thanks!

I’d find a model AB012012... it’s not a Navitimer if it doesn’t have wings.

The one on the right for me. Cleaner look with the small font and I know it's a chronometer so don't really need it spelled out for me. But if I were in the market for a new Navi it would be this one.

Check the caliber on each. may be different. I prefer the in house with 5 year warranty.

I prefer in-house too especially for this kind of money. Both the models above have the 01 in house movement.

I’m leaning towards the one on the right too as like you said I already know it’s a chronometer. I also like the less cluttered and cleaner look. As far as the reissue model you posted, while I do like it, I prefer the reverse panda look with the white sub dials. Looks nicer to me!

While I do like the wings, the Navitimer 01 has such as a recognizable look that it doesn’t take away from the look of the watch to me. You can still tell it’s a Navitimer from a mile away with or without the wings.

That is a super great Navi with the outstanding B01 movement. To me, this is the most beautiful stainless steel watch on the market today.
