    help needed..Breitling Navitimer 806

    Hi Guys, I was attracted by an ebay sale this morning and wonder if this piece is a real/fake one? I Dont know more about aopa Navitimer but it seems good for me?

    NEAR PERFECT TRANSITION VINTAGE 1964 BREITLING AOPA NAVITIMER 806 VENUS 178 | eBay

    Anyone can tell me about the history of this watch? What are the movements inside etc? Your comments are highly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    The one fault I see is the balance cock swiss code appears to be BOW. BOW was only used up through 1957 so the later WOG code should be on this 1964 watch. I also think the lettering on the bridge is the earlier lettering consistent for an older model. My guess would be the movement wasn't originally in that case.
