Breitling TopTime ref 2009

Beautiful Tonneau case, beautifully worked & gold plated case


CASE & BACK: This watch measures a large 40mm not including crown and is 12.5mm to the top of the flush fit crystal. The Gold plated case appears to have never been polished and still shows its original bevels and polished finish. I can not see any scratches , a very lightly worn watch  — Fantastic vintage condition overall. The steel back has no scratches either and shows its original Breitling nomenclature of the period is also in Excellent original cosmetic condition. The inner caseback shows no corrosion . Case has reference 2009 and serial number 1138976

DIAL & HANDS: Beautifullyblack dial without scratches  All original polished steel and ‘cream’ colored Tritium luminous hands.

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 pushers 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+ 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 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.

SERVICE HISTORY: No service history is known
