Navitimer with beaded bezel, silvered subdials, no AOPA but twin planes logo with breitling geneve and red-coloured printing on the dial and outer sliderule.
Hands and sliderule are new.
Is the beaded bezel correct for this dial?
I know 806 Navitimer with silvered subdials, AOPA logo and beaded bezel only from 1964.

Most likely someone fitter an earlier bezel to a later model. Alternatively, it could be a transition model from the early 1960s, although in that case the slide rule and dial would be wrong. What is the serial number - that will confirm?

Deffo wrong. Red marking on dial are 1967/68, beaded bezel earlier.
