Why We Love It

“We’ve had a few vintage Navitimers over the years but NEVER one like this”

What You Should Know

This is an outstanding example of an all original stainless steel Breitling Navitimer 806 from 1966.

A rare watch in any condition, this one owner Navitimer really is extraordinary.

The all original black and white ‘Reverse Panda’ dial is pretty much perfect with just the slightest of shrinking of the lume on the hour markers.  The hands are also original and untouched with complete and only very slightly darkened lume.

The bezel which is normally rounded and worn on a Navitimer of this age is incredibly sharp and crisp.  The case is unpolished from new and we have left it that way.

The whole lot is protected by a perfect plexiglass crystal to the front and stainless steel snap-on caseback to the back protecting the manual winding Venus chronograph movement.  When it was tested by Rolex & Omega certified watch specialists Michlmayr & Co the watchmaker commented that everything inside was so perfect that it had probably only been serviced once.

The watch is fitted with a brand new black leather Hirsch strap.
