Here is a small selection of some of the fine Vintage Breitling models we currently have. Feel free to contact us if you have any specific requests, models or special year you might be looking for.
1960s Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Ref 809
Throughout the 1950s & 60s, there was a high demand for quality time keeping wristwatches for pilots & astronauts. Lauched in 1962, this model was designed specifically for the astronauts to aid them in distinguishing between 12 noon & Mid-day. The Cosmonaute model features a 24 hour alongside all the regular slide rule indicies that enable users to perform various complicated mathematical calculations such as gasoline consumprion, speed, distance travelled, etc.
This specific example has all of its original details still present. The dial, hands & insert all share a matching patina indicating they were all born with this watch. The solid stainless steel case is nice and sharp, free from any major dents, pits or corrosion. Movement winds and runs beautifully once would. Triple signed Dial, Case & Movement.

1940s Classic Vintage Breitling Chronomat
Ref 769 +217012
This model is were it all started for Breitling & the introduction of the slide rule. The very first reference to have incorporated the slide rule feature that was later used in the navitimer models. This addition was one of the most ingenious steps which posted Breitlings on a global scale and to this day pays dividends to the company.
All 100% original and unchanged to 1947. One of the best examples I have seen. The solid stainless steel case has been well looked after and the dial & hands all share the same patina indicating nothing has been changed from the day this watch was manufactured & released in 1947.
Vintage Breitling Unitime 24h Pilots
Chronograph Ref 1765
Here we have an early Vintage Breitling 1765 Unitime 24hr Pilots Chronograph wristwatch. Mint condition. This watch works perfect well as do all chronograph features, swiftly resetting back to zero exactly how they should.
The superb 100% original never touched dial is unique to this model. Larger than the Navitimer dial it offers better clarity and more space to increase the silver chronograph sub dials. The 30min chrono at 3oclock is wonderful. This is larger than the other 2 silver sub dials and has unique luminous arrow head chrono hand. Simply stunning design and very easy to read. Ideal for long haul, Trans/Atlantic pilots which was Breitlings intention. The broad luminous filled main hour and minuet hands are the best Breitling ever designed.....Read More
ICONIC Vintage Breitling Top Time Chronograph
Inspired by the Motor Racing Industry, Breitling produced a number of unique chronographs throughout the late 60s, each one encapsulating a unique style or celebrating a specific event.
This is most probably the best Top time variation they made. The sub dials are equally balanced and the dial colours & texture resembles that of a dash board. Altogether a well designed attractive comfortable chronograph wristwatch. The solid stainless steel case is as clean as the dial. Free from any pits & dent & marks.

Commissioned by the Association of Pilots & Aircrafts (AOPA), Breitling manufactured and supplied their Navitimer range initially to the pilots. The revolutionary slide rule on these watches allowed them to calculate a huge range of various complicated calculations, making them extremely useful. These early examples are the most desirable and collectable.
All 100% original, this really is one of the finest examples I have had the pleasure of acquiring. The original untouched dial has all of its original detail and is simply marvalious to look at. The unpolished solid stainless case has all of its original sharp finish. All of the original Caseback engravings are clearly readable. Free from any major pits & dents, this watch looks marvellous on the wrist and is very comfortable.
