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 sundials in great condition
-dial and hand lume in virtual NOS condition, which is amazing for this reference. Photos are an accurate depiction if the condition, but the dust flecks are on the crystal, not the dial.
-metal telemetry dial ring in great condition - very rare, asit 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 case back, together with the model reference 2002
-Movement and case was just fully disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned, and the movement oiled by my watchmaker.
-mounted on a new grey lizard skin strap, with matching steel buckle.
This reference has become very rare to find in good condition, and the price reflects the condition and the fact that it has just been fully serviced.
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 fully serviced Venus 188 mechanism.
