Product Description

This is a Breitling one button chronograph made for the Canadian Dept of National Defence. Made between 1967 and 1977 there were apparently about 5000 of the chronographs made. If you are interested in more information there is some good data at vintage-breitling.com. This is a good, clean, unmolested example with the white two register sterile dial with intact lume on the dial and hands. The case is 36.5mm stainless steel and appears to be in unpolished condition. The movement is the Valjoux 236, very clean and functioning correctly. Both chrono hands reset to zero as designed. Watch is keeping accurate time but I have only checked it briefly due to the fact that it has remained unused for about 25-30 years. Both crowns are original with the winding crown signed Breitling. The inside caseback and the movement bridge are also signed Breitling. The outside caseback bears the correct DND markings including serial number and stock number. All markings are clearly visible. The strap is the issued khaki coloured strap with a black tang style buckle. This particular watch was used in the Canadian Army by an artillery soldier. If you’ve been looking for one of these watches this is a good chance to acquire a solid unmolested example in excellent original condition. There is a limited supply of these watches and really good examples seldom come to market. We have not done anything to this watch. We are leaving this to the new owner to deal with as they see fit, but obviously an overhaul would be recommended. The watch is being sold in “as found” condition. The price is $9495.00 CDN by bankwire transfer only.
