Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
A circa 1967 Breitling Top Time, the desirable 2002 Thunderball reverse panda, so called due to a modified version worn by Sean Connery in the 1965 James Bond film.
This example features:
-reverse panda black dial with silvered subdials in great condition
- Photos are an accurate depiction of the condition
-metal telemetry dial ring in great condition - very rare, as it is often damaged by moisture ingress near the crown and pushers.
-triple stamped, with signed dial, crown, and caseback -"Breitling, Waterproof, Antimagnetic, Shockprotected, Stainless Steel, Swiss Made” is signed on the caseback, together with the model reference 2002
-mounted on a highly tapered vintage black rally strap, with matching steel buckle.
This watch model has a "monocoque" (1 piece) case where the movement is removed from the front after removing the crystal and dial ring. As such, there is no caseback that pops off or unscrews to allow a photograph of the movement to be added to the listing. However, this watch houses a Venus 188 mechanism.
This reference has become very rare to find in good condition.
