HISTORY & NOTES

A mystery watch manufactured after the German occupation; Breguet was housed in the Quai de l'Horloge, Paris. It was told to produce watches by the occupiers but claimed not have some parts. Drawings were obtained and sent to Krupps (Boden Kruppstahl/ Krupps Steel back), hence the German caseback for the twin seal case!

Examine the photos carefully; they form the majority of this very rare French military watch's description.

Please note that I never guarantee that a watch is 100% waterproof!

Your Breguet will be carefully wrapped (see my Feedback and bid with confidence!) and shipped via Colissimo Insured & Signed For.
