Breitling Navitimer 806 "Twin Jets": The Gleaming Fusion of Luxury and Flight
Introducing the Breitling Navitimer 806 "Twin Jets" in a gold/steel case — a timepiece that masterfully encapsulates Breitling's penchant for horological finesse and pays homage to aviation's most storied era.

Gold-Clad Heritage in the Skies
Taking its roots from 1952, the Navitimer quickly garnered its reputation as the official timepiece of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). This particular "Twin Jets" rendition of the reference 806, with its fusion of gold and steel, elevates the watch from being not just a tool for aviators but a symbol of refined elegance.

An Encore to Timeless Design
The 806 "Twin Jets" showcases a gleaming dance between gold accents and a steel framework. The deep black dial provides the canvas for luminescent markers, and the contrasting gold sub-dials serve as a reminder of Breitling's commitment to luxury even in their most functional designs. Encased within this radiant shell is the trusted Venus 178 movement, a heartbeat promising both accuracy and dependability.

Slide Rule Bezel: Not Just Gilded, But Golden
The bezel isn't just adorned with gold; it carries the golden age of aviation with it. This slide rule bezel, apart from being an aesthetic marvel, is a navigational tool, enabling pilots to compute essential flight parameters. While its intricacies might seem complex, the function it brings to the wrist is undeniably invaluable.

An Opportunity Draped in Gold
Vintage watch aficionados understand the allure of the Navitimer. While the surge in vintage chronograph prices is evident, the Gold/Steel Navitimer 806 remains an accessible relic of the past. However, as prices inch upwards, acquiring this blend of gold-laden luxury and history seems like an opportunity not to be missed.

Conclusion: Embrace the Gilded Legacy
The Breitling Navitimer 806 "Twin Jets" in gold/steel isn't merely a time-telling device; it's an artifact that resonates with tales of soaring altitudes and opulent tastes. To own this watch is to wear history and luxury in unison, offering a glimpse into the adventures of yesteryears while being draped in timeless grandeur. Secure this elegant spectacle now and let your wrist chronicle stories of both air and affluence.

Condition Report

Condition Report: Presented in excellent vintage condition. The dial remains in beautiful condition, clear, free from damage and the lume plots showing some nice patina. The glass is also in excellent condition with only the occasional scratch. The case importantly retains its plating, a key factor to consider with these gold/steel 806's.
