    Waiting (im)patiently for this.

    I have a deposit down for this Navitimer 806 1959 re-edition. First promised in August, then delayed to September, latest landing date end of October for this one. I hope the wait is worth it...

    Beautiful piece. I have also made an enquiry about this watch, and awaiting the call.

    Hopefully a sign of a positive new direction for Breitling

    I count myself lucky (I guess) that I have mine reserved at my local AD (outside but close to London). I did enquire fairly recently at the Bond St boutique about availability and it seems the first tranch are all allocated. They may be able to get some available second time around - but it seems like Breitling have a winner on their hands. I have yet to handle it but at a 41mm this will be a very wearable Navitimer, a manual wind version of the B01 chronograph movement and Plexiglas domed crystal and the lovely original style face of the 806 - I can't wait to see it.

    Hope you get yours soon!!

    I'll wait for the 50% off sale ;)

    Shame that's unlikely with this model :(
    It's just a matter of time...

    Looks amazing - far far better than a lot of the more “modern” navitimer botch jobs...

    Love the indecent logo -- once you see it, you won't unsee it.

    Looks unique and distinctive will be interesting to see it in the flesh, good choice.

    It may also hold the record for the most numbers on a watch face

    I was a hair's breadth away from ordering one - the only thing that stopped me was that it doesn't have white subdials. Even so, lovely watch and one I may up trading my vintage for.

    No, the 809 beats it .

    Nice looking reissue, it's probably even dearer than an original though.

    I also prefer the white sub dials on Navitimers, but, of course, black is correct for 1959.

    Got an email tonight that some are available via the Breitling website. Faster than something very fast - order paid for. Should be with me in 2-3 business days.

    If anyone else wants one - head over to the Breitling official page - you may get lucky!
