Up for sale this rare vintage manually-wound Swiss made Breitling Chronomat Ref. #217012, a two-register chronograph watch ref. #808 manufactured in 1970, in hard to find excellent condition. The watch comes with the original vintage Breitling stainless steel buckle. The rare original silver/black "Panda" dial with a complicated "sliding rule" layout looks amazing, never seen a better example, very close to NOS (new old stock) condition.
