Breitling AOPA Navitimer 806 (1955)

This 1st generation Breitling/AOPA Navitimer watch serial number 845016 was manufactured in 1955. The Case, Dial, Hands and Movement are in excellent condition and are left untouched. This is one of the earliest serial number AOPA's i have seen.

The early AOPA Navitimers had the smallest beads on the bezel (125 beads), and then up through the 50’s they grew bigger & bigger, so basically one can say – the more beads on the bezel the earlier the watch

The gloss gilt dial is excellent for its age and the luminous markers have patina and are no longer luminous.
The movement is the manual wound Calibre Venus 178, as you can see from the photos the movement is in excellent condition and has been serviced in our workshop and comes with a 2 year guarantee.   

The name 'Navitimer' is a combination of the words Navigation & Timer, since the watch was originally developed as a navigation watch for pilots, who could use the  slide rule to calculate remaining distances, fuel consumption etc.. The Navitimer seriously put Breitling on the world map. It’s until today the most famous watch they ever produced and it’s unlikely that it will ever be surpassed. Generally it can be said that the Navitimer with 3 Sub dials was made in four editions/generations cased in a small watch case.

The watch comes ready to wear on an original Breitling leather strap along with Breitling Pin Buckle.
