Launched in 1952 with a slide-rule bezel to compute complex navigational calculations, the Navitimer was designed with professional pilots in mind.
Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition Is A Faithful Tribute
Just like the original version, the new Fake Navitimer 806 1959 Re-Edition sports a 40.9 mm stainless steel case and a rotating beaded bezel with exactly 94 beads. The number of beads is a thoughtful detail that serves to please vintage watch enthusiasts.
The dial is arguably the Navitimer’s most defining characteristic and yet again, Breitling has accurately re-created the one from 1959. The black dial is home to a trio of black subdials and the all-caps Breitling Replica Watches UK name just above the unsigned winged logo.
A Few Modern Touches
Fake Breitling Water resistance is amped up to 30 meters and modern SuperLuminova material was hand-applied to the dial for luminescence. However, Breitling ensured that the color of the lume mimics that of the original 1959 Navitimer 806 watches.
The in-house Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09, which is, of course, COSC-certified, is based on the brand’s Caliber 01. This new hand-wound Breitling chronograph movement operates at 28,800bph and offers a 70-hour power reserve.
