This is probably one of the absolute best Navitimers I have seen in unbelievable condition , lume is striking and best of all it comes with a full set of papers , the signed warranty papers and the original manual . Sadly no box
CASE & BACK: This watch measures a large 41 x 48.3 mm not including crown and is 13mm to the top of the flush fit crystal. The heavy all-steel case does not appear to have ever been polished and still shows its original bevels and contrast satin-polished finish. There are very few superficial scratches and some nicks commensurate with a very lightly worn 50-year-old tool watch — Superb vintage condition overall. The outer part of the snap steel back has some very light and superficial scratches but shows its original Breitling nomenclature of the period including the 1091447 serial number on the inside, which indicates a 1966 production, and correct 806 reference–also Superb original cosmetic condition. The inner caseback shows no corrosion and has the correct internal Breitling engraving of the era.
BEZEL & SLIDERULE: The Coin edged rotating bezel is in fantastic condition . The bezel itself rotates with good tension in both directions as designed. Sliderule is in Superb condition
DIAL & HANDS: A Matte black and white dial with white printing and finely calibrated track and no imperfections , small white silver subdials All original ‘cream’ colored Tritium luminous numbers , unheard of as most Navitimers have blackened spots or completely blackened lume. All original hands
CROWN & PUSHERS: Signed Breitling crown looks very clean and winds and pulls out to the time-setting position as it should. It sits tightly against the case. The two pusher caps are likewise in Excellent shape and both chrono pushers work as they should and also nice and crisply.
CRYSTAL: Large flush-fit acrylic crystal is Excellent and without scratches and no marks and sits barely proud of the bezel, which I believe to be correct for this model.
MOVEMENT: Legendary Venus 178 chronograph movement is looking bright and working well with all correct Breitling nomenclature of the era and shock protection. Watch is keeping good time with a strong power reserve and all chronograph functions are working properly and returning to zero. This is guaranteed to be the case at the time of shipment.
BOX & PAPERS: This watch comes with the original warranty papers and user manual
