Today's offering showcases this one-owner Certified Pre-Owned Breitling Navitimer Chronometer automatic chronograph watch in gorgeous condition.
According to Breitling, "Constituting Breitlings's flagship product, the Navitimer line symbolizes the brand's mastery in the field of mechanical chronographs."
The architecture of this Navitimer is full of details - noteworthy are the chamfered lugs, the coin edge bezel, and strong black dial with tachometer scale.
The new-at-the-time caliber Breitling 24 engine used in it allowed it to have a beautiful dial layout that is similar to the original 1960s ref. 806. It is reminiscent of the reverse Panda dials of the iconic 60's and 70's Navitimers.
It has all of its Breitling parts and presents in gorgeous condition. The striking dial is mint. The crystal is just short of perfect mint. The case is just short of mint. It does not show any significant signs of previous polishing and retains strong lines.
One of our Master Watchmakers has performed any needed servicing. We have tested it extensively including testing it on a machine that spins it in all directions simulating it being worn. It continues to keep time on par with a brand new Breitling.
For the finishing touch, we have meticulously detailed it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Accompanying the watch are its Breitling boxes, tag, original protective sticker, chronometer certificate, and instructional manual.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement.
