Hands-On The Breitling Navitimer Super 8

Post by koimaster » April 17th 2018, 11:14pm

To indulge in a feeble joke, making watches based on instruments that were used by belligerents in a major war is always going to be something of a minefield. War is something everyone deplores (well, mostly everyone) and yet not only do we seem to keep getting into them, we also celebrate many aspects of war; it brings out both the very best and the very worst in human nature. Watches and clocks are as essential to the waging of war as they are to making peacetime a well-regulated and profitable enterprise, and participate in the dual character of military conflict. Such instruments, made for war, make it much easier for us to do each other in efficiently, which is rather ghastly, but as is so often the case with precision instruments made to serve a specific, critical purpose, they also, you know, look cool.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
