One of my favorites from my collection, purchased in July of 2015, is a 1970 Venus 178 perfect fake Breitling 806 Navitimer twin jet with nice provenance.
The 41 mm diameter stainless steel top replica Breitling Navtimer case features a caseback that’s engraved “Drew Pirie” — who was a golf pro, pilot, and son of Andy Pirie, an Australian commando in WWII who bought and engraved the watch for him. (Over the years, dating back to the original in 1952, Navitimers have come in 38 mm, 41 mm, 43 mm, and 46 mm case diameters. The Breitling Navitimer 806 fake for men, however, has come only in 38 mm and 41 mm diameters.)
Special thanks to Fred Mandelbaum (@Watchfred) and Eric (@faded_lume) for authenticating the watch for me prior to purchase and Eric for finding and getting information via a Facebook search of Andy Pirie through his son Drew after I made the purchase.
In the early 1950s, AAA replica Breitling UK collaborated with the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) to make the slide rule bezel of its Chronomat even more relevant to pilots. They jointly produced the Navitimer. The slide rule bezel contains two logarithmic scales. The outer scale rotates bi-directionally, and the inner scale is fixed. Together, they can perform a variety of calculations.
Pilots primarily used the 1:1 fake Breitling Navitimer to calculate speed and distance. This would help them to track important elements such as flight times, fuel consumption, or wind impact. If you’re not a pilot like most of us, you can still use the Swiss made copy Breitling Navitimer’s slide rule bezel for more applicable daily life events such as calculating the tip on a bill, converting miles to kilometers, Fahrenheit to Celsius, or even dollars to Euros.
The very first 806 Breitling Navitimers replica watches for sale UK came with all-black dials but eventually, the sub-registers were changed to white and increased in size to make them more legible. Navitimers 806s were available up to the end of the original Breitling company in 1978-1979 and with the modern best quality copy Breitling company since the Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Edition from 2019.
The new high quality fake Breitling Navitimer Ref. 806 1959 Re-Editions look great, however, I prefer the vintage 806 Navtimers and you can typically still find them for less than the modern version.
