Nowadays it seems normal to see large watches, with diameters of 40 mm or more. Though, in the middle of the 20th century, fashion and style demanded smaller sized timepieces. It was in this scenario that Breitling, around the ’60s, decided to go against the current and began to produce large specimens, also considering the type of use to which these objects were destined. The present pilot’s chronograph offers fantastic value to the discerning collector, as it is a rare find among vintage Breitling wristwatches. The heavy all-steel case does not appear to have ever been polished and still shows its original conditions. Absolutely in near-mint condition, the black dial with its famous Art Deco Arabic Numerals filled in radio is definitely charming. This is an object that represents the style and ability that has always distinguished Breitling in all its history and object of merit for every collection.
