Breitling ref 2100 with venus 210 movement , smallest chronograph ever

This watch is no longer available

This is an extremely rare Breitling ref 2100 with a manual wind venus 210 movement

Beautifully patinated dial and most likely the smallest chronograph ever made ?

Size 32mm without crown and pushers , beautiful lugs and stunning overall appearance

recently serviced may 2016


CASE & BACK: This watch measures 32 x 40mm not including crown and is 12mm to the top of the crystal. The stainless steel case does not appear to have ever been polished and still shows its original bevels and polished finish. There are very few superficial scratches and some nicks commensurate with a very lightly worn 48-year-old watch  — Fantastic vintage condition overall. The back has some very light and superficial scratches but still clearly shows its original Breitling nomenclature of the period

DIAL & HANDS: Absolutely stunning patina on the dial with printing and finely calibrated track  All original ‘cream’ colored Tritium luminous dots. steel and black hands with a chrono hand

CROWN & PUSHERS: crown looks very clean and winds and pulls out to the time-setting position as it should. It sits tightly against the case. The two pusher caps are likewise in Excellent shape and both chrono pushers work as they should and also nice and crisply. 1 pusher was replaced during service

CRYSTAL: Large acrylic crystal is Excellent+ without scratches and no deep marks and sits barely proud of the bezel, which I believe to be correct for this model.

MOVEMENT: Legendary Manual wind, Venus 210 chronograph is working well .  Watch is keeping good time with a strong power reserve and all chronograph functions are working properly and returning to zero. This is guaranteed to be the case at the time of shipment. Service history is unknown
