The first Navitimer 806 editions were sold with a Venus 178 manual chronograph movement such as the one that we are featuring here at Craft & Tailored. The glossy black silver gilt dial remains in untouched condition. The dial itself is rare due to the fact that is Signed AOPA and Breitling which is transitional for the reference and initially only sold to AOPA members. The case size of 41mm was very large for the specific time period and fits into toads modern tool watch sizing category without looking obtrusive. The outer bezel is in wonderful condition and functions flawlessly.

The case of this Breitling Navitimer Ref. 806 remains in unpolished condition and is wonderfully sharp and stunning! This watch was owned by a USAF pilot with the last name STONE which has been engraved into the case back by the original owner of the piece. The watch will come completely on a hand made Horween shell cordovan NATO watch strap which accompanies the look of this vintage Navitimer.


The glossy black silver gilt dial remains in untouched condition. The dial itself is rare due to the fact that is Signed AOPA and Breitling which is transitional for the reference and initially only sold to AOPA members. The dial also possesses a sought after silver gilding which is also rare and sought after for the 806 reference. The lume on the dial and hands is matching and has taken on the wonderful yellowish green patina. The outer sliding bezel functions flawlessly and possessed a wonderful patina with all numbers and markings intact and visible.

None. The watch was recently serviced and is running at COSC spec backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
