Renowned Hollywood celebrity and Breitling Ambassador John Travolta is in Singapore this week to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic aviation timepiece, the Breitling Navitimer. The watch on Travolta’s wrist? The newly launched Breitling Navitimer Blue Sky.
The best part about this watch, aside from its good looks? It is limited to just 500 pieces globally — making it a true Breitling collector’s piece. Breitling fans this is one you don’t want to miss…

The Breitling Blue Sky was produced to celebrate the 60th anniversary of aviation’s iconic timepiece, the Navitimer. No doubt that the Breitling Navitimer is one of the most iconic aviation watches of our day, but did you know it was first launched in 1952? It is on this 60-year foundation that Breitling claims the Navitimer as being the world’s oldest mechanical chronograph still in production.
Unlike many limited editions from high volume brands (including Breitling) that I see which number in the many thousands, the Breitling Navitimer Blue Sky is limited to just 500 pieces — a fact which no doubt adds to its appeal and collectability. The Breitling Blue Sky will retail for about $10,000 on the exclusive dark blue crocodile leather strap.
