I think if I cannot get this at the AD, I will not pay a premium to get it.


I am not sure where you are located, but I remember seeing on 17 Oct at 4:00pm they will be selling a limited number of 806s on the US Breitling website. Might be worth looking into.

Thanks, I'm currently in India, but will travel to Kuwait tomorrow. I will check that website.

Depending if you were looking to get a discount, these prices arenít too bad. One is for sale here on TRF also for 9k.

I got mine directly from AD with 4% off MSRP, but after my NY taxes, ended up paying 9k our the door.

I love the watch! Iíd been pining for a vintage 50ís 806 but good examples never come up and now I have one that I can wear with 5y warranty and he water resistance. Chronos that Iíll use liberally, I love it!

I do have a 1964 806 that I wear so carefully since Iím sure itís not waterproof, and chronos I never touch. Haha.

Alright, picked mine up in Houston today. Very happy with it. Absolute perfection. It's not at all too big on my 7" wrist. In fact, it's the perfect size. The strap is pretty substantial and comfortable.

Very happy with the purchase. No buyer's remorse...

Mine is no. 442. What numbers are y'alls? I wonder if numbers are correlated with the sale location or the order number...

Hope to collect mine end of next week - where should I look for the number? Is it engraved somewhere on the case or in the literature?
