FS: Breitling Wakmann Premier 765 38mm Chronograph 1960s *PIC*

Offering another lovely oversized vintage chronograph up for sale.
An uncommon Breitling Wakmann Dial and apparently the only dual signed Breitling Wakmann model produced.

Putting this up as part of a consolidation of the collection. Have decided to reduce quantity and increase rotation frequency. I very much enjoy my Breitling Top Time 810 and that more than scratches my Breitling vintage itch. Nevertheless, this is a very handsome and oversized chronograph that is a pleasure to dress up or down with.

Bought by myself from watch dealer Simon at Orologium in UK who sells a lot of vintage Breitlings.
It has been worn sparingly on rotation for the past year, about 2-3 times a month.
Original link from Orologium is here:

Have seen the same watch previously offered on Mentawatches here as well:

Overall keeps time well.
