Breitling Navitimer 806 (1959)

 Breitling Navitimer 806 (1959)

This 1st generation Breitling/AOPA Navitimer watch serial number 910640 was manufactured in 1959, the Case, Dial, Hands and Movement are in excellent condition. 

From the late 50’s, before going into the 2nd generation of Navitimers, Breitling started to produce AOPA Navitimers with their own name printed on the dial, but the AOPA wing logo was unsigned. 

The gloss gilt dial is excellent for its age and the luminous markers have patina and are no longer luminous.
The movement is the manual wound Calibre Venus 178, as you can see from the photos the movement is in excellent condition and has been serviced in our workshop and comes with a 2 year guarantee.   

The name 'Navitimer' is a combination of the words Navigation & Timer, since the watch was originally developed as a navigation watch for pilots, who could use the sliderule to calculate remaining distances, fuel consumption etc. The Navitimer seriously put Breitling on the world map. It’s until today the most famous watch they ever produced and it’s unlikely that it will ever be surpassed. Generally it can be said that the Navitimer with 3 Subdials was made in four editions/generations cased in a small watchcase.

The watch comes ready to wear on its original Breitling leather strap with breitling pin buckle.
