Breitling Chronomat 769
Stainless steel case sliderule chronograph made by Breitling in the 1940’s. This present watch has a quite rare black dial with white outer scale.
The watch is in outstanding conditions. It has probably been kept in a drawer for many many decades… The outer scale has a tasty “cuban cigar” patina, radium indexes are almost 100% preserved with only a small loss at upper 6 and lower 1. The red and white colour strike and shine over the glossy black dial. It’s really a pleasure for the eyes everytime you look at it, even when knowing the exact time is not important at all.
36mm without crown
Venus 175 manual winding working fine, its bridge is signed Breitling Premier.
