A snow white dial, gold dauphine hands, sub seconds, date at 3o'clock, bright gold case in a refined size... I mean, c'mon! And from a highly regarded Swiss brand, all under £1k! The condition of this lovely piece is amazing, the gold plating is looking bright and crisp, the dial clean and vibrant. I think these 50s Breitling's have a lot to offer for such good value, how long that value will stay untapped is anyone's guess, but I do believe these will start to creep up!
I think makes the perfect addition to any collection, granted it probably wouldn't be a watch you'd wear every day, but it's a watch that could tick a lot of boxes for most collectors and easily see its way into being worn regularly!
Points of Mention
The dial condition is very clean and showing no signs of aging. The case is also very clean with a few faint hairline scratches, gold is intact and not fading or discolouring. The steel back has some scratches, the movement is clean and working well. The watch is paired on a brown Hirsh leather strap.
As soon as this one came across my desk and I saw the condition I knew it was a special piece, how many watches survive this amount of years and still look this good? I know most humans can't say the same! Either way, very excited to offer this one for sale and can't wait to send it off to its new home!
