FS: 1966 Breitling Top Time 2002 silver dial amazing cond.

The silvered dial does not show any obvious imperfections and is close to flawless. The tacky ring is in brilliant condition, and this is where lesser examples often fall short. The straight handset is consistent for this time period, and shows only some minor aging to the minute hand. The original tritium hands looks well preserved. The red seconds hand is also correct for this configuration, and the crown is signed but I think a replacement. The case looks unpolished, and the engravings on the caseback are crisp and deep. The pushers look to be original. If you are a Top Time aficionado, you will know that these are monocoque cases and so you cannot remove the caseback to take a photo of the movement.

Asking £1700 ONO (great dial). Watch is London.
