A nice and complete example of a vintage chronostop made by Breitling for Wakmann, who was their agent in the USA during that period, it has been professionally inspected by Localtime.

It includes its original box, warranty paper and leather string. Really a lovely, complete set. The caseback still has its original sticker on.

As with all the watches that are handled by Localtime, the listed price includes a written 6-month written warranty from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you have.

Extra: Try my Localtime Verona calf buffalo leather straps: I have found them to be very comfortable and a great match especially for dress watches and chronographs that will combine well with this style of straps. They come in 5 sizes (16-18-20-22-24mm), 2 lengths (standard: 90/115mm & extra long: 95/1255mm) and 4 colours (black, blue, brown and dark brown). Each strap also comes with 2 buckles; one stainless steel and one gold-plated. They have two keepers, one of them is fixed and the other one is floating, for a better fit and comfort. A good quality pair of spring bars is included with each strap. You can see them in the last photo here and/or purchase them separately under eBay item 132941096192. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I include a written warrantee with my buy it now price and I always describe what I have changed, if anything, on the watch.

Important Note On Straps/BraceletsThe straps I use on my watches [leather, canvas, suede, rubber] are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
