1970’s Breitling Chronomatic 2111

£3,500.00

During the 70’s many watchmakers pushed the boundary of the norm. Breitling embraced the bold and distinctive designs of the 1970s, featuring larger watch cases and dials with prominent sub-dials and markers. This design ethos catered to the era’s fashion trends and offered a sporty and masculine aesthetic. Looking at this watch it screams 70’s with its unusual shaped case.

In brilliant condition for its age, crisp silver dial and a clean case. Featuring the iconic Project 99 movement the project by Heuer and a number of other companies to develop the world’s first automatic chronograph. Note the pulsometer scale in red, used by doctors and medical personnel to quickly take a patient’s pulse. This matches the red text on the date disc, a nice little touch and shows Breitling’s attention to detail.

It’s a great entry level chronograph for the budding collector even coming with its original box and papers.

Interesting Fact “The brand was sold to Ernest Schneider. Schneider was an electronics engineer who specialized in transmissions within the Swiss armed forces. “
