Luxury watchmaker Breitling is soon releasing the Navitimer Ref. 806 1959, a special reissue of a 1959 design.

Like the original unveiled 60 years ago, the watch will feature the same crisp black dial, tone-on-tone subdials, unsigned winged logo, beaded bezel, and tastefully sized 40.9mm case. On top of that, the watch is also updated with Super-Luminova coating and an in-house, hand-wound Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09 movement with a 70-hour power reserve.

Limited to 1,959 pieces with pricing TBA, it's a beautiful statement to get in the collection and a versatile design that can dress up as easy as dress down.
