    Up for sale is a beautiful gilt-dial, dark chocolate dial Breitling manufactured in 1940s.

    The watch is 33mm with thick, solid steel water-proof case, with screw-in caseback, equipped with Venus 170 movement. The watch is serviced in 2018, runs well, chronograph resets to zero. The dial is silver printed, reflect light just like a gilt dial.

    To my knowledge all parts of the watch is original, including hands, crown & pushers. The watch case & movement is not signed as Breitling outsourced their chronograph parts to many different manufacturers back then, just like other watch brands at that time. I bought this watch from another well known collector with full confident. In all, this is a very beautiful chronograph.

    Price is $3500, including pictured mesh bracelet (unbranded) shipped WW via FedEx International Priority. I have many worldwide reference.

    Nice watch!
    You have a typo in your title - gilt is spelled wrong
