NOW REDUCED ..... A vintage Breitling chronograph model ref 181, from circa.1947. Powered by the Venus 170 manual winding movement, which is signed Breitling Watch Co. An elegant timepiece, that is also very easy on the eye.

The case is in great condition, a circular watch with wonderful flowing lugs giving this watch a really attractive look. The watch dial itself looks utterly fantastic showing slight signs of patina to the silver dial, with the Breitling signature and art deco style Arabic numerals really bringing through the classy side of this Breitling watch. 

Sweeping around the watch dial are the silver coloured lance hands, running parallel to the tachometer scale on the inner & outer edge. What make’s this more unique from other chronograph watches is the two “up-down” sub dials which can be located at 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock, the lower sub dial being the continuous seconds and the upper dial measuring 45 minutes. Blued steel hands on both subsidiary dials and also the central chronograph hand.

A beautiful, fairly rare and highly collectable timepiece in excellent overall condition on a black leather strap. A simple and elegant watch that is fully functional and keeps excellent time. Don’t miss out on this or you will be sure to regret it!
