My first Breitling is a Breitling Military pocket watch with Wakmann movements, in perfect condition with clean case back. It looks awesome !!

Thank you for your kind words.

Here are more pictures. This is my first pocket watch too and I just love it when I can pop out the back case to look at this any time I want...

A rich vein for collectors. Breitling made about 50 variations a year maybe more for about 75 years or more. I'm just picking figures here guys but it will give you some idea of the depth of the field when you start looking for Breitling pocket timers/stopwatches. Sports, industrial, aviation, artillery, naval gunnery and the list of specific applications goes on and on. Have Fun!

Altro, sorry! :oops:

Breitling claims they started producing watches for the US air force in '42.
That date sounds pretty unlikely to me and I believe them to be from the late 40's to the 1950's.
I own a variation of the same watch and I also love to wear it.
I should post photos so you can compare it with yours.
Best,
f.j.
