Steel Breitling Ref. 1450 vintage wristwatch, circa 1975
A large stainless steel 3-register chronograph wristwatch with tachymeter
This Breitling chronograph wristwatch is in exceptional condition and appears to be almost unused. The steel case is very large for a vintage wristwatch and retains the original, crisp, satin and polished finishes; it is especially rare to find the original finishes on a multi-faceted, multi-finished case from this period. The black matte dial is equally stunning with luminescent baton numerals and hands and three silvered and finely engine-turned subsidiary dials for constant/subsidiary seconds, chronograph minute and hour recording.
Breitling finished Valjoux calibre 7736 manually wound movement, lever escapement, 17 jewels, mono-metallic balance, 18,000 BPH, Incabloc shock absorber; matte black dial, luminescent baton numerals and hands (please note that luminescence will have naturally dulled with age), three silvered engine-turned subsidiary dials for constant seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour registers; very large stainless steel tonneau form case with satin finished top, polished flat bezel and facets, satin finished case sides and back; case, dial, movement and crown signed.
