The cheap fake Breitling Navitimer ref. 7806 was introduced in 1972, and it is a much-talked-about Navitimer. The ref. 7806 was the first Navitimer in this traditional case style to feature a date function (the Chrono-Matic “Big Case” references 1806 and 1809 came first in 1969). As you can see, the date aperture is tucked away between the markers at 4 and 5 o’clock. For this Navitimer Date, perfect replica Breitling used the manual-winding Valjoux 7740 movement instead of the previous Venus caliber. But it was not the only change as the hour counter at six o’clock made way for a running seconds counter. On top of that, Breitling also changed the dial design, moving the “Navitimer” wording up and placing it under the “Breitling Geneve” text. Additionally, the brand added little hints of red to the black dial. Lastly, UK 1:1 fake Breitling also added red accents to the slide rule for some extra color.
This aaa quality replica Breitling ref. 7806 is a clear statement of the time it was released in. It is what gives this Navitimer its charm. And what I specifically like about the model in the picture is that the 41mm case works well with the 22mm-wide stainless steel bracelet. The folded high quality copy Breitling three-row bracelet features the same twin-jet logo on the clasp as is used on the dial. If you would like to add a ref. 7806 to your collection, expect to pay roughly between €4K and €8K. On top of that, the special models issued to air forces of different countries also play a part in collectibility and the corresponding prices. While the Breitling Navitimer ref. 7806 fake for men might not be the most popular Navitimer, it certainly has its place in Breitling history.
