Breitling Navitimer 806

Mint condition vintage and highly collectible Breitling Navitimer model 806 with the highly rated Venus 178 hand winding Swiss made movement. It’s a vintage classic dating to around 1967. The dial and hands are in aged condition showing patina and fading adding to the overall vintage look of the watch – they are all original to the watch. The case is in outstanding condition, still with sharp edges and very little overall wear to it. This is the classic Navitimer originally produced in the 1950's and this one dates to the mid to late 60’s. The watch is all stainless steel, large and substantial and is a true instrument timepiece. It naturally has the rotating slide rule intended to help pilots to calculate flight plans, navigate and perform other flight or mathematical related calculations. The chronograph functions are distinguished from the timekeeping functions, as the hands are cleaner than the dial so it is possible that they could be replacements, though they are genuine Breitling. The 60 second elapsed timer is the large sweep second chronograph hand, the thirty minute elapsed timer is at the 3 position and the twelve hour elapsed timer is at the 6 position. The subsidiary seconds are at 9. Lovely contrasting colours on the dial with the main part being mat black, the outer chapter in silver, with silver sub dials.  The hands are luminous filled, and luminous material is still in good condition. It comes on a replacement strap but has a genuine Breitling pin buckle, which is off a modern Breitling Navitimer.  Lovely well laid out and symmetrical dial design. It comes on a replacement brand new Hirsch Traveller black leather strap. Dimensions are as follows. The width is 41 mm excluding crown, and 44 mm including the crown. The thickness is 13 mm and the lug to lug distance is 48 mm
