Ultra Rare Vintage Breitling Wakmann Double Signed Chronograph
Beyond re-branded watches, Wakmann also supplied timekeeping devices for the Armed Forces, U. Government, commercial airlines, and radio/television studios as part of their Breitling relationship. This is a great example of an oversized watch for the 60's / 70s, coming in at 40mm. The dial is a very nice champagne color, with glossy blue subdials, accentuated with red subdial hands The dial and hands are original and unaltered, although the dial does show a few minor marks around 4 o'clock and 6 o'clock, nothing that really takes away from the beauty of the watch though. The gold plated stainless steel gives the watch a nice weight to it. The watch is humming along with no problems at all. This is truly one of the only vintage pieces that could easily pass as a modern watch, based on size, look, and condition.
I constantly get comments about it from people that know nothing about watches. Worth noting, I have yet to find another example of a double signed Wakmann - Breitling watch, so it appears this variant is quite rare. I have another Wakmann that is nearly identical, but doesn't have the Breitling sign.The watch is keeping time, and the chronograph runs + resets perfectly with no issues. Comes with a leather strap that is very comfortable on the wrist.
