Over 60 years ago, Breitling revealed a stunning piece of wristwear to the aviation world. Known as the Navitimer, the pilot’s watch would become a mainstay in the cockpits of pilots the world over thanks to its innovative “slide rule” — a system used to calculate critical flight processes. Now, the iconic timekeeper is serving as the manufacturer’s first historic re-issue, boasting a limited-run collection and a glorious classic design principle.

The Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 harkens back to the original aviator’s watch with an impeccably realized all-black dial and tone-on-tone subdial. Alongside the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09 mechanical movement and Super-Luminova coated elements, the 40.9mm case sports a high-domed acrylic glass, an unsigned winged logo, and a black vintage-inspired leather strap. A water resistance of 30 meters and a COSC-certified chrono­meter revitalize the respectable build — and with just 1,959 units set to be sold, the Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 is sure to be a hit among collectors who are looking to capture a glimpse of aviation’s nostalgic past.
