Hi guys! Came over this 809 with a crown on the caseback and an inscription in arabic or persian:

Done some googling without success. Does anyone know the connection here? Did a picture search and found out that the text could be translated into Al-Min bin Bayt (persian), but that does not take me anywhere either.

this iws the "Hashemite Crown" of the Kingdom of Jordan and "Hussein Bin Talal" below.
King Hussein was a pilot and a Breitling enthusiast, he commissioned these watches (Both 806 and 809) and presented them to honored guests at court.
(a small number was manufactured in solid gold as part of the "Royal collection"

Thanks for the info guys! That’s an interesting back story, makes it interesting to buy, but unfortunately it appears to be re-lumed, probably had some work done on the sub-dials as well:

Unless any of you think otherwise?
