Launched in 1952 with a slide-rule bezel to compute complex navigational calculations, the Breitling Replica Navitimer was designed with professional pilots in mind.
The design of the new Navitimer 806 1959 Re-Edition was essentially plucked straight from Best Breitling Replica archives to create a faithful reproduction of the vintage model. In fact, place the new and old side-by-side and you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference.
The dial is arguably the Navitimer’s most defining characteristic and yet again, Fake Breitling Watches has accurately re-created the one from 1959. The black dial is home to a trio of black subdials and the all-caps Breitling name just above the unsigned winged logo.
Eschewing modern-day sapphire crystal on the Navitimer 806 1959 Re-Edition, Breitling instead opted for the period-correct high-domed acrylic glass to protect the dial. Completing the retro look of the 806 reissue is a vintage-inspired black leather strap attached to lugs that are identical to the maiden model.
Since we are six decades along after the takeoff of the original 1959 ref. 806, a few modern touches had to be included in the new re-edition. Water resistance is amped up to 30 meters and modern SuperLuminova material was hand-applied to the dial for luminescence. However, Breitling Replica Watches ensured that the color of the lume mimics that of the original 1959 Navitimer 806 watches.
To honor the Navitimer 806 movement of yesteryear, Breitling produced an entirely new in-house manual movement. The in-house AAA Breitling Replica 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.
