1964 Breitling Top Time Chronograph (Ref. 2000)
|Style||Top Time Chronograph|
|Material||Gold Plated/ Stainless Steel|
|Strap||2pc Black Leather Strap|
The gold-plated case is in lovely condition, showing only minimal signs of aging and use. The case retains its original and desirable square pushers along with its original "Breitling" signed crown. The stainless steel case back retains its factory markings in deep and legible condition. The watch will comes supplied on a 2pc leather strap.
The silver sunburst "panda-style" dial with black sub-dials contrasts against the gold plated beautifully. The dial itself is in great condition, though it does show some light marks. The tritium lume plots all remain intact, though there is some light degradation on some of the plots when inspected under U.V. light. The original tritium hour and minute hands have taken on a dark patina, under U.V. light inspection the hour hand shows some very light lume loss and remains stable. The sweeping chronograph hand was replaced at some point and matches the watch aesthetic nicely.
The watch is functioning and keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
