1953 Breitling 658024

£750.00

The Watch

When this watch landed on my desk I was immediately in love, the dial featuring, very simply, the Breitling logo with long leaf hands, applied indices with a eggshell patina'd dial. The way the case flanks to twisted lugs that feature drilled lug holes, the whole watch was just great in my mind. Coming in at 35mm it makes for the perfectly sized dress watch, whilst still have the design that could easily pull off for normal attire.

We just had to pair this watch on a Genuine Lizard strap, I mean c'mon! How amazing does that pairing look, the strap is completely unworn! There is something about a vintage watch being paired well, when it gets done properly, like in this case, it is so satisfying!

Points of Mention

The watch was serviced in 2018, however no paperwork is provided with that. The watch does feature a base metal case, which is in very good condition in comparison to how most age over 65+ years! The watch is paired on a genuine high quality lizard strap. 

Personal Note

A vintage Breitling for under £1000. Can you really ask for more? I think that answers that question, now do yourself a favour, take another look at those photos and click that add to basket button...
