I keep on trying to make some room in my collection box.
Today I offer a very nice vintage Breitling chronograph, model 1190.
Some of these watches were marked Giro d'Italia in the dial.
Oversized 37 mm. (without crown).
All correct according to some vintage Breitling fans asked back when I bought it, since I'm not 100% sure that the crown is the original one. Anyway, it looks similar to ones seen in those models.
Powered by a hand winding Venus 188 caliber, signed Breitling.
Morellato leather strap.
The picture of the movement although diffferent is also from this actual watch. I just could not open the caseback now (lost my tool...) and used and old one.
Uniform patina in the dial, that gives the watch a distinctive vintage look.
All functions working properly.
Asking price is 1230 €, shipping included (registered with tracking number. Any other shipping, at actual cost).
Have a few references selling and buying here, if needed. Feel free to ask any question by email. Thanks.
