SOLD, PENDING FUNDS...Listing my Breitling Navitimer Montbrillant Ref. #A48330. Do your due diligence on this one, Boys! Only built from 2005-2008, the LAST hand wind offering by Breitling, one of a very few two sub-register Chronos EVER built by Breitling - this is an exquisitely beautiful watch! I fell for the "symmetrical" dial, which to my eyes looks "proper" on a Chrono; convenient Date function at 6 O'clock, gold gilt hands/gilt indices/gilt "Breitling"; Montbrillant 100th hour center dial in red gives it a nice sporty splash of color, as does the red-tipped sweep second hand. It's a "proper" size too; at 43mm wide (w/o crown), it has JUST the right "wrist presence" IMHO - enough to attract attention, but not too much to be ostentatious, like the Breitling for Bentley or Legende series. Wears well on my 7.25" wrist.
This is the complete (and CRITICAL) "kit" - inner/outer boxes, all booklets/instructions INCLUDING the (usually missing) Slide rule "tool", and the all-important Breitling "punched" serial number papers - no Fugazy here! A Search of eBay current and past auctions, as well as Chrono24, will reveal to you that lesser examples (strap instead of the FINE Breitling bracelet, no papers, no boxes, etc.) have SOLD for US$3,400.00+. I paid US$4,000.00 for this watch back in March from a WUS Stateside owner. It is currently keeping GREAT time; all chrono functions work PERFECTLY, all hands reset EXACTLY to zero. I just now louped it - crystal is entirely scratch-free; lugs each have a few light scratches from bracelet changes; nothing that the lightest "kiss" of a polishing wheel wouldn't remove. I would conservatively grade it at TZ 92%.

First CONUS-only "I'll take it!" for US$3,400.00 will not only get it shipped Priority Overnight (Cashier's Check or Postal M.O.'s please), but I will also include a vintage brushed stainless Breitling bracelet - EASILY worth an additional $500-$800. Do a Google Search on my name "Joe Ganzler" and feel good about the seller - Additional watch references available too. (Strap in second scan below NOT included-no scans of vintage bracelet.)
