Breitling Sprint - uniquely beautiful steel chronograph in a large 36 mm casing (measured without crown) from around 1927, all parts of this timepiece are original, it couldn't be any better for collectors. Casing no. 316608; pressed base
This is a patented mono-pusher chronograph, one of the first developed by Gaston Breitling, the son of Leon Breitling, the founder of the company. It has a Breitling Montbrillant intermediate wheel calibre with 14 lines, in full working order and serviced just 2 years ago.
100% original dial with wonderful, beautifully even patina with the inscription "Sprint". With telemeter/tachymeter scale. Until around 1932, before the company was taken over by Willy Breitling, Breitling was not allowed to sign dials with "BREITLING" because the naming rights had belonged to the earlier company Breitling-Laederich since 1840. At that time, dials were inscribed with Montbrillant, Sprint, Koko or Vitesse. However, for the most part, nothing was inscribed on the dials. (See Benno Richter page 13), original blued hands.
Black calfskin leather strap with buckle.
Strap length: 21 cm; lug width: 19 mm
