Vintage Navitimer 806
First Series "Twin Planes"
The Navitimer is among those rare winning designs that are as fresh and contemporary today as in the 1950s and 60s.
This 806 from 1964 is quite exceptional, being from the first year of the famous Breitling "Twin Planes" dial logo. This watch is in never-polished condition, with its case edges and bevels beautifully delineated. The black lacquered dial is absolutely perfect, perhaps the best we have ever seen.
Beautiful original tritium luminous hands and hour chapters in a bright warm tint. The black steel sub-dial hands are original and of the correct weight (fat for the hour, and skinny for the others), while the original 'monochrome' slide-rule bezel is clean and legible.
The interior is equally pristine. The gilding in this manual-wind Venus 178 Navitimer calibre is in superb condition, while the steel work is without signs of careless handling that one often sees. Fitted to a fine-grain lizard strap in the pattern of the 1960s originals. The condition of this watch can't be overstated – collectors know how rare Navitimers are in this in this condition. Fully serviced by Watch Club and carrying our two-year warranty.
