FS: Serviced Breitling Ref. 814, Venus 178, B+P, rare fullset

I want to sell a real rare nice fullset of a Breitling Ref. 814 chronograph from the year 1971.
The watch comes serviced (march, 2019), with box (with little defects, loose hinges), hangtag, pricetag (455 DM), certificate international (may, 1971) and world service book, invoice of service.
Never seen such a fullset of this watch.

The Breitling Ref. 814 is a nice chronograph with a great handwind columnwheel movement.
The diameter without crown is 38mm.
The movement is a Venus 178, same movement as in the old navitimern.
The watch should be all original, only the crystal has been replaced (with a fitting one).
It is signed four times (crown, dial, movement and case)
The case has little scratches, but you can see the original sunlight finish on the surface.
Dial looks good, so does the caseback (with reference number and serial visible).
The lume is original in the hands and on the dial.
Crown is original and signed.
Movement is a red-golden Venus 178 with Breitling signed bridge.

Over all a set, that I have not seen again since my 15 years of collecting.

Price: I have found a few of this watches sold at Ebay and other sites, but none of them with box and papers.
They have been sold between €2k-€2.5k.
I think, for this serviced Breitling Ref. 814 incl. box and papers, a price of 2250 Euro would be more than fair.
Payment with banktransfer or (with references) with Paypal (please add 4%).
Would prefer a EU deal.
Lots of references ihere, in german and WUS.

Thanks for the place, Jeff!

Best regards,
