It seems like Breitling has kept a significant number of the allocations for their boutiques. These generally seem sold out at ADs but readily available at boutiques. It will be interesting to see whether they keep them at the boutiques or allocate them to ADs if the boutiques don’t sell them quickly.

I would buy it, but for the price. $8600 is to much for a Navitimer.

Finally got the word from my AD yesterday - mine is IN! Still out in Europe for the time being so will have to wait until Friday to get my paws on it however. Very excited nonetheless!

That's what is p*ssing me off. I pre-ordered mine through my long time AD back in May, and we haven't heard anything on an ETA for the watch, but evidently there are other AD's with them sitting in their cases for sale, not pre-sold. I would have thought that they would ship the pre-sold ones first... guess I was wrong.

I currently have 21 Breitlings in my collection all of which, except 1 vintage piece, purchased new from my AD. I am starting to feel that if this is the way Breitling treats it's long time customers maybe I should stick to other brands.

Very disappointed in Breitling.

According to my AD, ADs didnít place orders for the 806 are-edition. ADs were allocated a certain number. My AD was told they would receive two allocations. They received their first 806 (#6 in USA) and didnít not expect to receive the second 806 for a few months. I reached out to the AD the day the watch was announced at Basel so I was able to get the ADs first allocation. I didnít have to place an order with the AD or place any money down. So if your AD told you you had a pre-order, that may not have been an accurate statement. I know it doesnít help with your anticipation and frustration, but maybe it can explain why you havenít received yours.

I would just go the boutique route if you really want one. Yes, maybe a bit more expensive but if itís a keeper, whatís another few hundred bucks?

jeezus, seems I went with the wrong AD. They told me it would be in today. No call so I called them, and I get a story something about their Brietling rep had promised to ship it, but then changed his mind at the last second and decided not to ship it to them but sent it instead to a boutique, something about boutique allocation VS their store blah blah blah, but it will ship sometime next week, definatley maybe for sure, but I definitely AM getting it, their entire company has gotten 0 but were told they'd be getting exactly 1, and that 1 single unit would be used to fill my order, so really instead of being pissed or annoyed I should be grateful about how hard they are working for me bending over backwards to get this very extremely severely limited hard to get piece blah blah blah

Yeah Breitling seems to be taking a very high handed attitude with this model. The funny thing is, in 2 years we will be able to pick one up for under $5k. Guess we are the stupid ones.

You might be right, there doesn't seem to be all that much excitement over these. The thread for this watch over on the Breitling Forum is dead. Nothing like the Omega forum discussing a new Speedy, or a new Rolex model here on this forum. Not even close.

They seem to be tinkling these out in such a way as an attempt at creating a sense of false demand and scarcity, but all that seems to be happening is the pissing off of people that pre-ordered and pre-paid in advance

Well 1959 pieces out of 8+ billion is indeed limited, and it should hold its value. I think breitling is more popular in Europe. When I sold my old navi, almost all the interest came from Europe. The reality is, as you allude to this is a Rolex form, and so these people are falling all over themselves about the Daytona and too busy to notice this piece. The navitimer is and always will be far ahead of the Daytona with regard to importance. The Daytona has added nothing new. The Daytona is like the kardashians, famous for being famous. Or because itís associated with the salad dressing guy. The navi was a real tool used by pilots in real situations and the oldest chrono still in production. The Daytona is behind the speedy, navi, el primero, and maybe then the Daytona.

Iíve almost booked mine today. I think this will be the ultimate iconic Breitling !!! Just imagine a 806 which to me is the complete absolute Breitling in a times less Platinum in a blue dial. I would spend $40K on this anytime than pay thrice as much on a steel 5726 ! ( which I own ) anyways !

It looks like Breiting USA is looking to cut-out the AD's and sell these watches directly through their boutiques and online. If they have them available online, they have a stock of them which they are not shipping to AD's.

Iím not sure you can. Unlike other watches in the site, you only get the option to ďCall to BuyĒ for the 806 Re-Edition.

I know the wait can be frustrating, but as someone who waited for the first Speedy Tuesday after months of delays, as well as alllocations with other brands, itís not unusual to have to wait many months to receive your allocation. Unlike certain Rolex, AP, Patek, and Omega watches these days, at least these are relatively obtainable.

No he's right you can..... With next day delivery. I went on and went thought the motions but didn't buy it as I have one on order from my AD. I'd rather give my local AD the business than buy it online.

This watch has lost its ďspecialĒ feel. Online ordering? Really? Thinking of going with something more unique with a date!

Where did you find this? I though the blue was only with the black subdials. I too tried on the navi reissue at tourneau KOP (they have one if anyone is interested or did on Monday). The date is quite useful for me.

That’s the 46mm version.

I also know my AD has an 806 in stock right now if anyone is interested. Just an FYI though, it's full retail.

Very disappointed in Breitling.
I would argue that this occurs across all brands, unfortunately. In my case, I was totally fortunate to find one since I had not been following Breitling for a while. In the case of Omega, I was the first one to put money down at my local AD for Ď57 Trilogy Speedmaster the day after the announcement. Yet, others who put money down well after me got their piece. So, I can emphasize with you itís not a good feeling.

Iím waiting now for a Blancpain Air Command. With this, I contacted a boutique rather than an AD. Theyíre saying next month. But, I wouldnít be surprised if itís early next year.

Even the new BLRO, a disappointment for me as its only available on the jubilee bracelet and the excessive wide lugs and bling bezel make it unwearable for me. Lets take the Daytona, the slapped a ceramic bezel and the watch continue to ne illegible and everyone cant get enough. Can you imagine if they did something like what Breitling just did with the Navi to the Daytona, now that something worth getting excited about. Like a Daytona 6263 reissue!


Which Daytona do you have thatís illegible? White or black?

I have the 116520, white and just gave it to my wife. Both the white and black dial are not very legible. I mean for a time check yes, and I can even get past the shine. But I use my chrono to time things that need to me timed precisely at work. If you look at the minute subdial, there is not enough hashmarks around the 10, 11, 12 then 19,20 and then 29. I was timing something that needed accurate timing and could not tell if it was 10,11, or 12 minutes. This is simply not ever an issue with my speedy. Likewise the issue has been on all daytonas even the 116500. I believe they used to have enough hashmarks in the ones in the mid 1980ís but the issue came with the change to the auto movement. At any rate, a watch that I canít use is simply jewelry so I passed it onto my wife who is happy with it and never uses the chrono.

Random question.....

Is there any Navitimer Bracelet that will fit on this re-issue?

Huge fan of the breitling polished bracelets.
