Breitling collectors watch out. There is a very nice Breitling Navitimer with the reference 816-72 with manual winding movement for sale. The chro - which is actually known for its automatic (Chronomatic) - was first equipped with the Venus 178 hand-wound caliber in 1968 and later with the caliber 72 from Valjoux.
The 816 Navitimer was one of the first models to feature the new smooth-running aluminium bezel, which has proven itself in this watch for over 40 years. All in all, a 48 mm watch was an absolute sensation in the 60s and 70s. Even today, 48 mm are still above average in size and extremely present on the wrist.
In the fried egg beats the Valjoux caliber 72 - a wonderfully robust chronograph caliber, which beats very quietly and reliably with 17 jewels and 18,000 beats per hour. This movement was also used in the first versions of the Rolex Daytona and by Heuer.
The Breitling was not polished by us and comes along with a very good substance. The aluminium bezel is also in a very nice condition and not worn out like many other models. The leaf has a beautiful homogeneous patina, which suits this vintage watch perfectly.
The built-in leather strap with thorn close is a new calf leather strap and unworn. The buckle is neutral.
It carries our uk quality seal, comes with uk certificate of authenticity and has a 1 year warranty from date of purchase.
