Picked up this Breitling Chronograph, Seems pretty much New, Dial& Movement are immaculate....Has original band. Paid less than $1000.00 for it, from Estate sale. Any info regarding model Name and Year produced would be helpful. I am pretty much a Pocket Watch collector.
Back of case:
I'm a pocket watch man too and the Breitling world is real confusing so this is just an approach.
Breitling Navitimer 806; movement venus 178
Navitimer of the 1st Generation:
black subdials; B Breitling Geneve
AOPA wings: Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association
806 on the case
pearl beads on the bezel
time 1955 -1963
hope someone knows more precise
The first dating attempt i made on your watch was just on the visible details as i showed.
new information : the pre 1978 Breitlings can be dated with help of the serial number. Chronographs and non-chronographs have different number lines. I think in case of Breitling it must be the number in the caseback (Breitling used different movements - this makes numbers on the movement useless). If my assumption is true the number 930091 says manufactured 1960.
In addition to Gerald's very helpful information here is a really interesting display...

The one most similar to yours seems to be from around 1960 as Gerald suggested.

Can you describe the symbol under the balance cock is it a star or something else (photo?) and does that say 9711 below, any chance of a photo from side showing crown and bezel.
