  • Description



Not many watches on the market can match the incredible appearance of the 2nd Generation Aviation Swiss Cosmonaut-type Chronograph. This Ref. #2442. Aviator's Chronograph is strikingly similar in appearance to the Breitling 809 Navitimer Cosmonaut. This exact model is of a Limited Edition run of only 205 total watches ever made! This incredible timepiece features a superb 18K Yellow Gold case that measures approximately 43 mm (from case to crown). It has a coin edged bezel and a decorative 18K Yellow Gold crown. On the back, it has a solid 18K Yellow Gold case back with its Limited Edition Serial Number engraving #36/205. Behind the crystal is a superb black and white dial. It features a 24h display dial, signed Gold-plated with clipped back in steel, pearled silver-plated multifunction bezel (sliderule: flight time, fuel consumption rate and miles to nautical miles or kilometres conversion), and Swiss Cal. 7736 Mechanical Movement by Valjoux. The watch is complete with a brown crocodile two-piece strap that measures approximately 22mm (wide) and can fit up to an 8-inch wrist. The strap is enclosed by its original 18K Yellow Gold tang buckle. Not only is this piece of extreme rarity, it is incredibly hard to come by today in Brand New condition. It comes in a beautiful mahogany display box. This wearable piece of art is guaranteed to please any collector!

A complicated but interesting story for lovers of aviator watches:

  • In 1979, during the watchmaker crisis, Breitling was sold 'piece by piece'. 
  • Mr Ernst Schneider bought the Breitling brand and the logo, without the design rights, the brand thus stayed in the family.
  • Helmut Sinn, the founder of Sinn watches, bought the stock of assembled watches and the design rights to the Breitling 806 and 809 Navitimer.
  • Finally, Ollech and Wajs purchased the stock of separate components, tool, and design rights to models pre-1979. They then began to make watches, initially with Breitling component parts, then with parts made to Breitling specifications. These chronographs were made under the brand 'Swiss Engineer Chronograph'.
  • Towards the mid-1980s the brand had disappeared, before being recreated by Albert Wajs around the mid-1990s. Albert Wajs currently has two product lines, military watches and still the 'Aviator' chronographs, made with new movements from stock.
