FS: Britling Navitimer 806 mfg. 1966 GILT Dial, Unpolished Case!

1960s vintage Breitling Navitimer chronograph ref. 806 in great original condition.
The dial is absolutely beautiful.
It is a true galvanic process GILT dial!!
This dial has a few surface imperfections very close to the tritium covered hour markers. This undoubtedly because a chemical reaction that has occurred over the 50 plus years.
The case is in great condition. All of the factory polished surfaces are still in factory condition. I see no evidence of re-polishing.
The bi directional turning bezel is also in very sharp condition.
The crystal has a few small scratches but not easy to see unless you view from certain angles and look for them.
The 17 jewels movement looks great and performs well with all functions working well. It is Venus 178.
The case measures 40 mm in diameter, 41 mm across the bezel.
The case back has a few minor scuffs.
I have no record of last service. All functions working well and the watch is keeping very good time.
I do not guarantee the water resistance of any of my vintage watches.
Any water damage occurring while in your possession is your responsibility.
Any questions, please e-mail. The watch is priced here at $6000
Payment by bank wire transfer to our 20 plus years old corporate account at Bank of America.
Shipping by FEDEX with Parcel Pro insurance runs $40 in the U.S. and $110 overseas.
