The still FACTORY ORIGINAL (non-refurbished) dial has some patina. The crystal is in immaculate, scratch-free, condition. The case has slight signs of wear but retains much of the original case material and finishing, and fullness and beveling of the lugs. Please consider the pictures as well as the age of the watch.
Last Service in 2018. The movement works perfectly and the watch is keeping time well.

In the midst of the Second World War, Breitling applied for a patent for the design of a rotating watch bezel with an outer slide rule scale incorporated beneath the crystal, allowing complex calculations to be made with the turn of your fingers. Such were the beginnings of the Chronomat, the Chronograph for Mathematicians. 10 years after commercial sales of the Chronomat began, Breitling adopted the technology of the Chronomat specifically to the needs of pilots. The Navigation Timer, or Navitimer, was born and the rest is history. If you want to own a Breitling, make it a Navitimer, as it is probably the most iconic watch Breitling makes. This is a rare Breitling Navitimer issued by the United Arab Emirates Military Forces with the crest on the dial. The watch is sold along with a used Breitling leather strap and the original Breitling pin buckle.
