Notes

Consigned by the original owner who bought the watch at Bijouterie Wegelin in Grenoble, the watch has been carefully and lovingly preserved. From the original box with its certificate dated 1967, the watch shows careful wear with nice angles to the lugs as well as a fully original double branded dial with perfect matching hands. Furthermore, all the light original Breitling caseback engravings are in close to new condition showing that the watch has been almost never polished. A great complete example of the Co-Pilot.
