With the Navitimer Chrono-Matic ref. 8806 Breitling launches the automatic cal.12 caliber in the traditional tapered lugs case with a diameter of 40/41mm; of course modified with a setting crown on the left.

The Navitimer ref. 8806 has "Big Eyes" hour and minute counters, but no running seconds subdial at 6, where the date display is positioned.

Red accents feature on both dial and slide rule. The logos are "Twin Jet" for Breitling-distributed Navitimer, or silverwhite printed AOPA-signed wings. There are two executions of hands: the slim lumed tapered baton of the classic Navitimer 806, later replaced by the lumed wide baton hands of the 48mm "Big Case" Navitimer. Dials are marked CHRONO-MATIC.
