After receiving a very enthusiastic welcome from Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association (AOPA) members, Breitling decides to make the Navitimer a "core catalog" model and market it through its worldwide distribution network, assigning and stamping the model reference 806 on the cases.

This small, single-production Navitimer batch is considered a transitional execution, still powered by the Valjoux 72 caliber, but already stamped 806 on its caseback. It features AOPA- and Breitling-branded dials.

Caliber: Valjoux 72, BOW-coded
Case: tapered lugs, ca. 40mm diameter
Bezel: small beads, ca. 40mm diameter
Dial: black, monochrome slide rule
Hands: wide lumed syringe, wide counterweight chrono sweep
