1972 Breitling Vintage Panda Dial Pilot's Chronograph - Stainless Steel


Item No. 4145

Today's offering showcases this classic and desirable Breitling "Long Playing" chronograph with a striking so-called Panda dial. The retro dial and hands give this Breitling a very distinctive look.

Here are some of its qualities:

  • Contrasting dial with "Panda" easy to read dark subdials
  • Rugged, waterproof case with antimagnetic cover provides protection against the elements as well as the electromagnetic fields present in a cockpit
  • Breitling finished Venus Valjoux 7733 movement
  • Two subdials for recording of events up to 45 minutes. The subdials have a balanced feel on the dial.
  • Sleek and professional style.

The watch is in very pleasing condition and the case appears unpolished with crisp lines. The only replacement parts appear to be the pushers. The original panda dial is mint! And the original hands retain their luminous.

Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $595 value).

For the final touch we have fitted it with a new Italian calf leather band and new-old-stock period Breitling buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase are open period correct Breitling warranty papers, a Connoisseur of Time certificate of Authenticity, a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, and a new timing certificate.
