For sale is my RCAF Breitling monopusher. This watch has a 1969 serial number. These were produced by Breitling for the Royal Canadian Air Force and never sold to the public. The majority of these issued watches were destroyed by the DND at the end of their service life.
I purchased this watch early last year. I had the hour and minute hands re-lumped by James Hyman in the UK. James used vintage tritium which he colour matched to the markers on the dial. When I purchased the watch it had a service crown. I sourced a period Breitling signed crown and had it installed. The original stainless steel case remains very sharp. This watch was serviced by the previous owner in February of 2017 and in running strong (see timegrapher photo).
-36mm stainless steel case
