Breitling ref. 1193 Chronograph from the 1950's.

This early Breitling is signed in all the correct places (dial, back and movement). It has been fully restored some years ago to look the part again. It was matched to a period correct leather strap as well as a period correct Stelux gold filled strap that matches the color exactly. It received a new gold filled layer on the case and crown but there are some signs of use (absolutely no wear through the gold layer). The original Venus 188 movement was serviced and is working great. The stainless steel back was polished as well. The dial has some small signs of age but looks great and shiny. The Case measures 34mm wide without the pushers / crown. No box, no papers but it comes with the Breitling reference book shown in the pictures to get the full details as a set. A great 70 year old watch with a lot of background which can be well worn on your special occasions!
