THE CASE IS IN FABULOUS UN-POLISHED CONDITION, MEASURING 34.5mm ACROSS THE BEZEL, NOT INCLUDING THE CROWN AND 43mm TIP-TO-TIP. THE VERY UNUSUAL SILVERED DIAL WITH SIMPLE ONE FIFTH OF A SECOND INTERVAL OUTER CHRONOGRAPH SCALE AND WIDE POLISHED BATON MARKERS, WITH MATCHING BROAD POLISHED STEEL BATON HANDS.
THE DIAL IS TOTALLY ORIGINAL AND SIGNED SIMPLY BREITLING-GENEVE. IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH JUST A LITTLE PATINA WHICH HINTS AT THE AGE OF THE WATCH. THE VENUS 188 MOVEMENT IS IN EXTRA-FINE CONDITION, HAVING CLEARLY SEEN VERY LITTLE USE AND IS WORKING PERFECTLY.
THE SNAP ON CASE BACK SNAPS CLOSED VERY FIRMLY AS IT SHOULD AND IS STAMPED BREITLING 1198 - STAINLESS-STEEL. VERY SLIM FOR A CHRONOGRAPH AND A JOY TO WEAR, FITTING VERY CLOSE TO THE WRIST AND NOT BULKY AT ALL. A FINE AND COLLECTABLE BREITLING FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF WATCHMAKING AND A SOUND INVESTMENT. Any questions are very welcome and we will do our best to get back to you within the hour.
