It is, among other features, the modern case size which makes these remarkable timepieces from the Navitimer range so attractive – originally intended for pilots, the size of the watch was designed to ensure easy readability. Reference 8808 dating from the 1970s has a date window with a red date disc at 6 o’clock.
The case of this piece is wonderfully preserved with sharp edges and a matt-finished band. The glossy black dial also in excellent condition – the luminous indexes have taken on a gentle, sand-coloured hue over the years. This is an altogether beautiful Navitimer chronograph dating from the 1970s.
