Thank you! Funny but I’m kind of looking looking forward to aging this watch.

Fantastic watch!

It is very nice to see the ancestor of today's model and in such extraordinary condition.

Me and my rainbow thank you sir for your valuable contribution to creating the faithful reissues of these so important Breitling watches.

So since I'm spending my honeymoon with my beautiful first Breitling let's make a fresh start in this part of our forum.

Show us the beautiful BREITLING you're wearing today and let me start with this little beauty ;-)



Thinking of getting one but had some questions. What is your wrist size? And do you notice the concave bezel? Thanks!

My wrist is 19 cm or 7,48 in. The concave bezel is part of the charm and peculiarity of this watch and does not attract as much attention from the watch itself.



Here are a few more pics to have an idea.

Awesome watch, Fred! I love the Copilot. That’s why I like the Mosquito that Breitling released last year, it’s very reminiscent of the old JC Killy.

this old thing ...

for those interested in Navitimer history:
Navitimer Mk1, Valjoux72 - from the last batch of the Valjoux Navitimer, manufactured in October 1955, just before Breitling introduced the Venus cal. 178 Mk2 in late November 1955.

These are the only Mk1 that already bear the model reference 806
