This is a RARE, and HUGE vintage, circa 1972 BREITLING NAVITIMER CHRONOGRAPH reference 7806! This entire watch is all original… the VALJOUX, caliber 7740 manual winding movement with offset date was just meticulously cleaned and overhauled by our watchmaker an is keeping excellent time. All functions work like silk! The stainless steel case measuring a HUGE 41mm. across is in very good condition without major dings or damage for its’ age, only minor marks from normal use that would all polish out if you desire. The rotating bezel is excellent…no dings…original BREITLING winding crown, polished lugs and pushers…all very clean. The original dial is very clean-the only marks are in the silver sub-registers with usual and original darkening of the markers at the 5 minute positions-nothing detracting on this dial! All the hands are original and have never been replaced. The rotating bezel inserts are usually worn on these watch from moisture. This bezel is all original-extremely clean! This version of NAVITIMER is considered the best looking of all references due to the large sub-registers and largest of all cases of the era. These 7806 NAVITMER watches were only produced for 3 year and most are in poor condition or, dials and bezels are “refinished”. If you seek a very fine and ORIGINAL BREITLING 7806 example-here you are.
