Incoming.. breitling collection is complete

I've been searching for a blue dialed navitimer in 43mm and an applied wings logo.


Finally found one...

I'm a bit fascinated by the story of how this watch came to be ..

A company called @9 .. (exclusively@9) got a custom order from breitling .. in 2 colors and 2 sizes (43, 46, blue, grey). from what i found out, 1000 pieces ordered.

Also they had the red lettering "Exclusive Edition" added to the dial.

the caseback has engravings "@9 Exclusive Edition" the reference, serial, and a edition # .. mine is #83.

Breitling included a limited edition certificate with the papers.

I wonder how often breitling makes custom orders. -- the @9 company still has these navi's for sale on their site, i picked this one up from the classifieds at TRF (thanks seth@leotimepieces)

Can't beat a blue dial. The white is a very close second

Congrats!


My favorite is blue dial on a gold navitimer or white dial on stainless. SOON.

Thatís fantastic. I especially love the blue dial and brown strap. Also apparently very hard to get that model in the 43mm. Great find.
