An exquisite and classy BREITLING chronograph watch, this rare 18k Ref. 178 ‘Extra Plat’ from 1944 [SN # 661069] has been professionally and fully serviced in-house here at our Localtime Spa.
It is in excellent authentic condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 35mm [37mm counting the centre crown] 18k rose-gold case is in excellent unpolished condition. The golden dial and gorgeous blue hands have an even patina commensurate with age and are a feast to the eyes. We have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots we took, just for fun. A scan of the original Breitling catalogue is also attached and you can see this model on the bottom right. This lovely chronograph is fitted with a handmade genuine crocodile strap in large grain dark brown.
