Hi, due large collection reduction for sale this wonderful and very rare Breil Manta Saphir 100 bars daydate quartz movement.
This is a Swiss made quartz diver wristwatch, launched in 80s. Quartz movement module ESA 9362. Quartz controlled stepper motor, sweep second, day: quickset, date: quickset, 7 jewels, f = 32,768 Hz.

Sapphire glass perfect.
The crown is original, screwdown with logo similar to Squale.

This wristwatch is in amazing condition, keeps good time, quickset day and date works as should. changing when midnight is reached. I don't know anything about its water proof, so I don't encourage to take a bath or swim with it unless a proper test.
I am a collector, not a commercial seller, so I cannot give any guarantee except as described.
