Watches Every Man Should Own
The Breitling Navitimer Montbrillant Eclipse A43030
There are certain wardrobe staples that every stylish man needs to own: a classic blue blazer, the perfect dress shoe, a well-tailored suit – these are all givens. But as we’ve stated many a time before, no ensemble is truly complete without the finishing touches that elevate an outfit to refinement. More often than not, the final piece of the sartorial puzzle is a well chosen wrist watch.
A timepiece says a lot about its wearer, and we’re here to make sure you’re making the right statement. Join us in our series outlining the best choices for a fully rounded watch wardrobe with the timepieces that every man should own.
When the watch of the week is the Breitling Navitimer Montbrilliant Eclipse, you know that the time has arrived for you to add a hobby watch to your collection.The Montbrilliant Eclipse is unique in that its lunar phase chronograph is an extremely cool feature often unheard of in watches at this price point.
Typically, a complicated extra feature like the lunar phase chronograph would be a component of a Swiss watch made in precious metal. Bretiling manufactured a relatively small series of this ultra-cool edition of the Navitimer in stainless steel, making it a great way to add this hobby watch to your wardrobe.
We love the jet black dial, punctuated with over-large numbers on the bias. The date window and chronograph features lend a staid air to this watch (but not enough to make it stuffy) and the moonphase chronograph adds whimsy while giving the Eclipse its name.
The classic Breitling-woven stainless steel bracelet is a sleek addition to this watch, and the case size (a bit smaller than the average Breitling) lends this watch an additional layer of refinement.
