Stopped by my AD today, still no definitive word on when it will arrive. He's guessing July at this point. He also said he has received 30+ calls from people looking for this watch. He tried to order a second one for a customer, but Breitling told him that the US allocation has been pre-sold at this point and no others can be ordered.

Just got off the phone with the boutique I ordered mine from.
I was told end of August / beginning of September.
They underestimated the time needed to finish such a model - since the watch has many hand decorations to the dial and case.
Not all 1959 are being delivered at once, and they are trying to distribute them uniformly - so some will be more lucky than others with the delivery time.
They are all Sold Out!

Iím intrigued. I ordered this model sight unseen when it was released at Basel. I, like others have seen pictures, but I would like to know more details on the handmade decorations to the dial and case you speak of. Can you elaborate?

My understanding is that the lume is hand-applied on the numerals. Read it somewhere and the SA mentioned it on the phone as well.

Since the case features both polished and brushed surfaces, I'm guessing this also takes more time compared with other models they are making (fully polished).

The Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition has been designed with painstaking attention to every detail to faithfully match the design of the original Navitimer in 1959. It has a stainless-steel case of precisely the same dimensions as its inspiration and an all-black dial with tone-on-tone small second, 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters. Recreating one of the signature elements of the original Navitimer Ref. 806 in 1959, the dial, protected by a highly-domed Plexiglas, is highlighted with a Breitling inscription in capital letters and an unsigned winged logo. In fact, the only concessions to modernity are the water resistance, which has been increased to 3 bar (30 meters), and a Super-LumiNova coating for which a very special attention has been paid to the color to ensure that it aligns with the aging of the luminescent material on earlier watches. Its hand-finished application gives the dial an additional touch of vintage allure and all its character. The Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition is powered by the in-house Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09, a hand-wound COSC-certified caliber based on the renowned Breitling Caliber 01 and developed specifically for historical re-editions. The Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition is available on a black leather strap and as a limited-edition of 1959 pieces, all individually numbered and engraved on the caseback.

Followed up with my AD, was told October. Was told basically the same thing, that they didn't properly anticipate the time and trouble of getting the fine details right during production.

Could be one of our AD's is correct and one is over promising, or the other one is correct and the other is under promising or they are both under/over promising

Just remembered I never got back to this - my guy told me mid September most likely. Even though I trust he'll come through like he always does I put a 50% deposit down at the same time. (Was ordering a 36mm datejust for one of my buddies anyways)

Excited to finally have it come through!

I have asked my AD to try and order me a Rose Gold version also. He put the request in, but only 159 will be available and I believe they were all pre-sold at Basel back in the Spring. I thought just in case someone cancels their order I may get lucky.
