Up for sale is this an incredible example a Breitling 817 military watch issued to the Italian Military helicopter pilots (Army Pilots, not Air Force pilots) in the 1970's and were never commercially available to civilian market. Only 500 of the references were made, with only a several recorded amongst collectors, making this arguably one of the rarest collection of military wristwatches ever produced.

This Breitling 817 as per CP-1 specification the case measures 39.5 mm in diameter with rarely preserved military engraving “E.I” (Esercito Italiano) translates to “Italian Army”, along with its military stock number on the screw-down case-back. The case features a black aluminium, PVD coated bi-directional rotating bezel with a sixty-minute graduation. Inside the watch, it houses a hand-wound signed Breitling Valjoux calibre 236 movement.

The watch goes on the generic black NATO strap.

Price: 15000 Euro net to me.
