Comments:

Breitling is by far one of our favourite watchmakers and the Breitling Sprint Steel Vintage Chronograph is one of our favourite Breitlings!

This vintage Breitling is a reference 2051 and is engraved with the serial number 1437496 to the caseback. This makes its year of production, 1975.

The striking blue dial really gets this watch noticed. The blue dial has faceted  baton hour markers with luminous tips bordered by an outer minute track . This is complimented by the round subsidiary dials for running seconds and 45 minute recording. So much information, but so clearly presented.
The black and orange hour and minute hands with luminous Tritium inserts, accompanied by the orange chronograph seconds hand complete the face perfectly. The tritium has decayed with parts missing from the hands, which would suggest they are original. We believe something can be restored many times over, but it can only be original once. We prefer the life of a watch to shine through and so we have left them as they are. Thee case has the usual wear of a much loved watch but the crown and glass are original.The case dial and movement are signed Breitling.

 

The watch is available for immediate dispatch and we can ship worldwide via DHL so please feel fret ask for shipping rates.
