CASE & BACK: This watchmeasures a large 39 x 48mm not including crown and is 12.5mm to the top of the flush fit crystal. The heavy all-steel case still shows its original bevels and polished finish. There are very few superficial scratches and some nicks commensurate with a very lightly worn watch — Fantastic vintage condition overall. The steel back has some very light and superficial scratches but shows its original Breitling nomenclature of the period and correct 810 reference–also Excellent original cosmetic condition.
DIAL & HANDS: ivory & black dial with white printing and finely calibrated track and only minor imperfections visible under a loupe Tritium luminous numbers show ageing
CROWN & PUSHERS: Signed Breitling 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.
CRYSTAL: Large flush-fit acrylic crystal is Excellent and sits barely proud of the bezel, which I believe to be correct for this model.
MOVEMENT: Legendary Manual wind, Venus 178 chronograph is looking bright and working well with all correct Breitling nomenclature of the era and shock protection. 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.
