This Breitling is simply beautiful. I wish this was in my collection.

Iíd like to know as well. I think Iíll hold out for a discount though. If the speedy 60th couldnít hold price this wonít either. Good for us enthusiasts though

What do you think is a reasonable discount on such limited watch?

I’ve read May/June for the 806. From talking to watchfred, Breitling will be introducing more historic reeditions throughout the year.

I think they will be floating around preowned in a few years for 40% off all day. I still want one bad enough I might eat it and take 15-20%.

Thank you. I hope they do it wisely and not follow omega footsteps issuing countless limited editions.

A European dealer offered me one with around 15% discount + tax free as I am not EU resident. Total value is coming to roughly 25% off MSRP, is it OK deal?

I would take it. Sure you can wait 12 months and prob save another 10-15% but Iíd pay the premium to have it this season. Such a cool piece.

I agree with GB, I'd buy it now and avoid trying to find a better deal. If this is anything like the original Navitimer B01 limited edition, they may hold their value slightly better than the standard Navis.

New Breitling Navitimer Re-Edition

This watch is going to be amazing. The dial is completely flat and not dished like the current production Navi, and because the dial is flat and right to the edge of the bezel, the domed acrylic crystal is curved to make space for the hands. Acrylic crystal is going to give the dial superb clarity, without glare. Beaded bezel is a nice touch like the original 1959. Wings are back for this edition. Slightly slimmer, slightly smaller, very vintage. An "All Black" version as they say. What's not to like? It's a smash hit!

I placed my order for this watch with my AD earlier this week. They were told only 250 of these are coming to the US market.

Only 250 to the US out of 1959 examples seems low to me. Very low. Iím guessing the US is Breitlings largest market but I could be wrong.

How are you guys getting discounts? None of the Breitling dealers around me are offering any discount with preorders. I placed my order anyway.

I have a 20 year relationship with my Breitling AD, go to dinner with him and his wife. I have never asked for a discount but he always gives me one.

Cool, youíre lucky! My dealer already has 5 orders before mine but only required a 50% refundable deposit. Seems like itís worth a shot for me.

I have my name on a list for one at my AD in the US. My AD was told by Breitling no discounts are available for this watch. It may be a US Breitling thing. He told me 200-300 for the US. I havenít been told a date yet, but was told I should get it before itís release, maybe as early as this month.

Placed my order yesterday with a 50% ref deposit. My AD only got 1 allocation initially but was able to get another one when I requested the watch the day it was released at Basel. He said late summer arrival. Very excited for this piece.

so it seems like this watch is going to be a hard to get one such a coll re-edition piece. Can't wait to see it once it arrives in the US.

My AD told me there is also a rose gold version of this watch, but they are already sold out. He tried to order one, but was told they were all pre-ordered at Basel.

Interesting as this was a heritage model that is only in SS on the website. I canít imagine buying a modern throw back model that wasnít in the same metal as the original. Kind of defeats the purpose. Ymmv

I ordered one right after Breitling announced it and put it up on their site. The AD called their Breitling rep for me to verify they could get it and confirmed they could and took a 100% payment in advance from me. I hope this means I'm in and no shenanigans happen
