Introducing the Breitling Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition
It's time for re-edition classic style! In 1952, Breitling developed the Navitimer, a revolutionary wrist-worn chronograph that instantly became a mainstay of every cockpit. It was worn by pilots for some of aviation’s most impressive developments, thanks to an innovative slide rule that enabled them to make all critical flight calculations.
Today, Breitling is pleased to unveil the Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition, which celebrates one of the most iconic early designs of the Navitimer, released exactly 60 years ago.
The Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition is a chronograph that replicates – almost to the smallest detail – the design codes of one of the most venerated early Navitimers, the Breitling Ref. 806, including an all-black dial with tone-on-tone subdials and a rotating beaded bezel.
