Breitling Navitimer 806 Cosmonaute

Good condition vintage and highly collectible Breitling Navitimer model 806 Cosmonoute, 24 hour movement. The case back is engraved with a name and a date in 1992, so appears to have been a gift in 1992, as the watch dates to tthe 1960's. The watch is working perfectly and all functions work correctly. 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. 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.  Lovely well laid out and symmetrical dial design.  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
