Breitling Navitimer 806 1959 Re-Edition

Post by Racer-X » March 15th 2019, 10:20am

"Today, we’re excited to bring you a hands-on look at something we’ve been anticipating: the Breitling Navitimer 806 1959 Reedition.

For many of us, we thought this day would never come, but lo and behold, we have finally arrived and Breitling has delivered a watch that should please fans of its impressive back catalog. With the announcement of the Breitling Navitimer 806 1959 Reedition, we are getting a no excuses watch that ticks every box (aside from it actually being from 1959); there’s honestly so little to complain about that it should silence even the most persnickety critics. We’ll talk about why that is, what went into making this watch and what you’ll be getting should you be lucky enough to pick up one of the 1,959 pieces that will begin arriving into authorized dealers this June. Oh, and a huge thanks to our cameraman Bert, who got up very early to photograph this piece, we have live pics – something we love to provide here on Fratello if at all possible."

I think Breitling is on a bit of a roll these days. I like a number of the new offerings.

Yup. That's is actually the point. In fact I'd go further and say this is the archetypal Breitling chrono. If you want dull or austere, a billion other dull, austere watches from other brands are available : )
