Breitling 809 1960s 41MM Venus 178 Beaded Bezel AOPA Big Wings Logo 24 Hour DialBreitling
For auction is a 1960's Breitling Navitimer Cosmonatue 809 stainless steel beaded bezel 41mm 24 hour panda dial tritium patina AOPA wings logo dial. A very rare watch with beaded bezel this was the first of the Navitimers with a two color dial; the beaded 806 is famously all black. The 806/809 is certainly on the Mount Rushmore of vintage chronographs for good reason; it is a design icon. The case is a beautiful and timeless design that still looks remarkably fresh.
