Breitling Navitimer 806 1959 Re-Edition 41mm stainless steel case, black leather strap


Plenty of watchmaker­s have plundered its archives for inspiratio­n in the last few years, but few have done it with such conviction and such impressive results as Breitling. The new Navitimer 806 1959 Re-Edition is as good as identical to its forebear — unveiled in 1959 and one of the most iconic pilot’s watches in its history — down to the plexiglass crystal and the number of beads in its beaded bezel. Now it comes powered by an in-house, COSC-certified hand-wound movement, developed especially for re-editions such as this. The closed case back is stamped with the watch’s number as the collection is limited to an appropriat­e 1,959 pieces. A new Breitling to add to that “most coveted” list. CT £6,520;
