OFFERED IS A VINTAGE BREITLING TOP TIME 2000 IN COLLECTOR'S GRADE CONDITION. Watch just came back from full, complete and proper service, and is guaranteed free of mechanical defect to workmanship for 12months from purchase.
CASE & BACK: This watch measures a large 36 x 48mm not including crown and is 14mm to the top of the crystal. The heavy gold plated case has not 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 50 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: Mint ivory silvered dial with black printing and finely calibrated track and no imperfections visible. Gold and black hands
CASE - Is in excellent condition, clearly only lightly used, no loss to gold finish.
CROWN & PUSHERS: crown is 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: New acrylic crystal is perfect without scratches
MOVEMENT: Manual wind Venus 188 chronograph is working well and full serviced. Watch is keeping perfect time with a strong power reserve driven by a new mainspring, and all chronograph functions are working properly and returning to zero.
PAYMENT - £1400 plus shipping frees due via PayPal or bank transfer
