FS: Rare Breitling Navitimer 816-72 w/ Val 72

Way too much buying this past 45 days, so need to move a few pieces. Up for sale is my Breitling Navitimer 816-72. This is a rare piece because it is with the Valjoux 72 movement. The Navitimer 816, normally comes with a Venus 178 or Valjoux 7736, so this Val 72 version is quite rare. As you will see in the photos, condition is excellent, and the caseback is worn, but still visible with the CORRECT engravings for the Valjoux 72 version. I am not certain of the quantity made of the v72 version, but from what I have read, they are in very small numbers.

Case: Very sharp edges with a few tiny scratches which can be buffed out if you choose to do it.

Caseback: All original with correct signed engravings for the Valjoux 72. Breitling logo is there but faint probably due to wear.

Dial/Hands: In excellent condition with all lume intact

Bezel: Black bezel is in excellent condition, with no paint loss or chips

Movement: Valjoux 72, in great condition and all functions work perfectly

Strap: Corfam strap is included

So if you are looking for a Navitimer, here is your opportunity to buy one of the rarer versions!

I will accept the highest offer over $3000 USD. It's a hard piece to price, due to the fact that there are not many around to compare too. I know one is up on Chrono24 for 5.9, and the condition is not as great, so if interested, send me your highest offer, because I don't anticipate to hold onto this very long.

Watch can be shipped from USA or EU.

Thanks Jeff and CT for the space.
