The best of Baselworld 2018 (6)

This is the sixth of a series of posts featuring some of the pieces seen this year at Baselworld, the world's most important watch show.

Breitling Navitimer 8 Chronograph
The number “8” refers to the “Huit Aviation Department”, which was organized in 1938 to manufacture cockpit instruments and classic pilot’s watches for civilian and military purposes. Willy Breitling chose the name “Huit”, i.e. the French word for “eight”, to allude to the eightday power reserve of his cockpit instruments.

Chopard Mille Miglia Racing Colours
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the brand’s partnership with the Italian vintage car race, Chopard added five new chronographs to the Mille Miglia Collection. The limited-edition watches channel the 1930’s colours assigned to each of the five national teams this year.

Edox N-Pole 42.195 Limited Edition
This timepiece features a Swiss-made Edox 102 quartz movement and a 316L stainless
steel case and scratch-resistant ceramic diving bezel. The Australian adventurer Marcus Fillinger will wear it later this year at the North Pole Marathon.

Favre-Leuba Raider Bathy 120 Memo Depth
A membrane integrated into the caseback allows water to enter a chamber that measures pressure to calculate depth up to 120 metres. Depth is relayed via a blue central hand on the dial. Water resistant to 200 metres, the Batchy also has a depth memory that stores the maximum depth (up to 120 m) reached during a single dive.

Graham Chronofighter Grand Vintage 
Originally placed there for easy thumb-activated operation in the cockpit, the trigger on the left-hand size of the 47 mm case now facilitates smooth operation of the chronograph on the ground, stationary and at speed.
