Breitling
Navitimer AOPA
Ref.: 806 - 2

It was in 1923 that Braitling patented its first two-pushers chronograph, allowing for the first time to time separate intervals without having to reset at each interval.

Breitling long lasting know-how in developing these instruments resulted in what was, and probably now still is, the most popular pilot’s watch ever: the Navitimer.

The evolution of the first Navitimer started in 1952 with the so-called “pre-806” due to the absence of the reference and was made just for AOPA members, the american Aircraft and Pilot Organisation.

It took until 1956 when Breitling launched the 806 reference we are used to today, changing the movement from the previous Valjoux 72 to a Venus 178 and implementing minor dial and case changes

The present watch, made only for the American market, features the gilt AOPA logo without Breitling brand name on the dial.

The two-colours dial is preserved in crisp condition, with clear white and black graphics and no signs of ageing.

The case size and shape is sharp and the engravings on case back shows no signs of polishing.
