We have covered the interesting history behind Breitling‘s Navitimer in the past. This amazing timepiece with its unique sliding rule bezel was released in 1952. It became an immediate hit with pilots and aviation enthusiasts, so much so that the International Aircraft Owners’ and Pilots’ Association chose it as their official timepiece. It was famously worn by Raquel Welch as a skydiving spy in the film Fathom (1967) and by Sean Connery as James Bond in Thunderball (1965). This watch has become a favorite of many pilots who have turned to Breitling for their watch needs. Watch Repair.

With this in mind it is no wonder why John Travolta eagerly agreed to become the official Breitling brand ambassador and is featured in many of their advertisements. John Travolta is a well known and experienced pilot, he has spent more than 5,000 hours in the air and is certified to fly several types of planes. He owns five plans: a customized Boeing 707, three Gulfstream jets and a Lear jet and even has his own 1.4 mile  runway at his home in Florida. Mr. Travolta famously flew his Boeing 707 to Haiti in 2010 with disaster relief supplies, volunteers and doctors. The actor/pilot has been a Breitling ambassador since 2005 and often wears these watches on a daily basis.
