Breitling Chronomat Reference 769 in 18K Gold – Circa 1946
For many, the Breitling 769 Chronomat represents the epitome of vintage watch collecting. The Chronomat’s rotating slide rule function was truly a revelation in it’s day. Scientists, engineers and mathematicians had the ability to perform complex calculations decades before the invention of the hand held calculator. This watch was produced just after the end of World War II making it useful for many as they begun to rebuild what was lost.
This Chronomat features an original dial, 18K Gold Case, and Venus 175 Breiting Premier movement. This watch is signed Breitling on the dial, case and movement.
