Yowza Gary, when do you ever get to see a vintage Breitling?! Surprised Answer..hardly ever..
..if ever !

So extraordinary sir, and so much fun seeing the similarities to today's Navitimer.
The fantastic dial, and of course bezel are beautiful ! ..Neat how it doesn't say
Breitling on the dial, and just has the wings like this too ! Holy cow, cool G !!!

For some history check out this link........

Basically the wings are logo of the AOPA - the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, it says AOPA in the center of the logo. You could only get this version a member of the AOPA, the regular version had the twin tails logo....

Wow ! Incredible Gary !!! study Very Happy Thank you !

Now that's some cool history right there ! Seeing all the different versions of these over the years
is outstanding sir. Love seeing the various changes, and learning about the little details like with
the AOPA, and everything. ..Thought I saw some kind of writing at the middle of the wings there ! cheers

Thanks once again Gary ! Awesome !!!

Oh man ! Epic Darius !!!  bounce  If it's not the CF dial that gets you with this, it's the
fit, and finish !!!

The combination between the pure stainless, and red carbon fiber is phenomenal
really, and makes for such a unique team. While at the same time being timeless !  

This has to be yet another favorite in the collection. I mean it's flawless ! Unbelievable D !!!

Thanks Tom! Definite favorite along with it's brother that has a yellow dial with red. Two watches I can't imagine I'd ever part with.
