Hey everyone,

Can anyone help me figure out how original this is? The only thing I could think of was the Breitling stamp on the movement, but not sure if anything else is off. If it is, it seems like a pretty good value since Chrono24 usually has them for at least a grand more.

What do you think??

Well first off it's got the wrong movement for a 806-36. Should have a Valjoux 7736 not a Venus 178. Either the back is wrong or the movement has been replaced.

Maybe it's my eye sight, or the photographs, but the hands in the last image appear to still have their lume?!?

My thoughts...case polished, movement wrong, hand lume missing, dial lume darkened, slide rule with red accents doesn't match dial. The sub dials patina is attractive but I think you should wait for a better example.

Also crystal/plexiglass is cracked at 11 o'clock position in the last picture but not in the first, though the hands have lost their lume in the first and found it in the last! ?Possibly cracked the lens trying to replace the hands, not sure the lens is correct.

Get far from this one, too many issues to be honest! Looks like a mix of different navi's parts incoherently put together to rebuild a complete watch .
