Hi everyone

I own this 18ct Navitimer 806 with 'Big Eye' dial. One thing that I still haven't managed to figure out is that the case back has no serial number (inside or outside) and there is also a scroll / flag design engraved under the BREITLING B logo which I have never seen before.
The finish on the gold looks to be the original factory finish and either way there is definitely no sign of wear or polishing on the inside or outside of the case back.
(See attached photos)

Thoughts on the lack of serial number and unusual scroll flag logo would be great. Thanks in advance...

have never seen that flag symbol on 18k Navitimers - but have a steel 806 Navitimer cases without serial that came from a Swiss Breitling Service stock, so may a spare case ?

Have you seen the flag logo on any other Breitling models (steel) ?

sorry, was a bit unclear - have never seen this flag design on any case of any brand or material.

it also isn't a logo of the casemaker Guillod Gunther SA, as no other of their cases have that.
