Breitling Navitimer 1960 All Black 98 Count Beaded Bezel Venus 178 41mm RadiumBreitling
For auction is a 1960 Breitling Navitimer 806 98 bead bezel caliber 178 exceptional condition black dial with wonderfully aged patina and clean white chapter ring on an excellent unpolished case. It is cliche how overused the word iconic is when talking about or describing watches, but definitely accurate when talking about a Navitimer. One of the most identifiable three register chronographs ever and the most famous Breitling by a mile. It would be a challenge to find a nicer example of an all black 98 count beaded bezel; a beautifully preserved example.
