If you can’t figure out who the famous person in this picture is, the luxury watch on his wrist might be a great clue. Nicholas Sarkozy likes to wear luxury watches and his collection includes several Rolex Daytona, Cartier, Breguet and, as you can see from this picture, a Breitling Navitimer. The President of the French Republic is a huge luxury watch enthusiast and he shows off his prestigious models as often as he can. Being an important political figure makes him a role model to so many and his choice of accessories can be very important.
Breitling watches are known for having a large display due to the many dials and the information displayed. There are three main groups, each designed and inspired from a category; diving, aviation and luxury. The Navitimer belongs in the air, and there is a lot of Breitling history that can guarantee a precise build and the necessary aviation functions. While these extras may not be used as much as they were in the past, the tradition of making a high quality watch designed for aviation use is very important to Breitling. Ever since the 1940s, Breitling has a circular slide rule on the bezel to help pilots. When the Breitling Navitimer was introduced in 50s and 60s, it was an instant success but there was still a problem which astronauts were having; a 24 hour dial was needed and Breitling agreed with a new model released in 1962. The same year, Carpenter wore one on his space flight. It is this kind of constant battle to achieve perfection that made Breitling the luxury powerhouse it is today. As a small side note, Breitling is one of the main sponsors behind the world’s first jet-powered flying man, Yves Rossy.
Having such a prestigious client as Nicholas Sarkozy can say a lot about the brand and the list of celebrities can go on forever.Breitling Navitimer, Breitling Watch, Nicholas Sarkozy Breitling Navitimer, Nicholas Sarkozy Watch
