A Superb Breitling Shadow Flyback Model Ref B35312 in Gold and Steel with a Stunning White Dial. Offered in Beautiful Condition and Complete with Original Box and Papers, c.2000.

There are few watch brands as closely associated with aviation as Breitling.  They introduced the world's first wrist-worn chronographs and patented the first wristwatch with two pushers — one to start and stop elapsed time and one to reset, a feature that is now taken for granted. In 1942 they introduced the Chronomat watch which eventually led to the development of the iconic Navitimer around a decade later. 

The Breitling Flyback formed part of the Windrider Collection and was introduced in 2000. It was a short-lived reference only remaining in production for a couple of years, however, it was well-received and offered a more versatile size with less bulk on the wrist than its counterparts, whilst still offering more than decent functionality - unidirectional bezel, easy legibility, automatic chronograph, and 100m water resistance.

What's on Offer

It’s hard to believe that this watch is over 20 years old, even on close inspection. Offered for sale in stunning condition with only light signs of general wear and complete with its original box and papers, this is a real gem from a brand with deep-rooted ties with aviation.

The gold and steel colourway offers a real luxury feel amplified by the gold dial furniture which incorporates applied baton hour markers, three gold-accented sub-dials, slim pencil hands with luminous inserts, and a subtle date aperture at 5 o’clock. The dial is encapsulated under the sapphire crystal and completed by Breitling’s signature, ratcheted, rotating bezel with its four projecting "rider tabs" in gold. Further accents of gold follow onto the crown and pushers and into the original pilot bracelet with a folding clasp.

All in all, a superb package on offer at a competitive price, a lot of watch for your money!
