This stopwatch is in amazing condition.
Very hard to find this Breitling in that amazing condition.
I present to you one very interesting exemplar of a brand Breitling, one of the biggest maker of the watches in the world. The case of the watch is in very good preserved condition.
Unfortunately, we cannot date this watch with very good precision. Watch is made about 38 – 42 years from now about 1975 – 1980 year. This means that the watch is around 40 years old and it is still in very good working condition, just has been serviced by professional watchmaker and work very accurate
This watch was wind up over 10 times and it work until completion of the entire course of the mainspring, so I can confirm that watch runs very precise, and showed no other defects.
This watch looks and works very well, I thing that every collector would love to own it, or can be very good present.

Case of this watch is in good clean condition, there are some very small dents and scratches on the case and cover but this is normal for 40 years old watch, for sure there are no serious injuries from dropping or impact.
The glass is absolutely no scratches on it.
On the inside cover of plastic case, there are inscriptions " MADE BY BREITLING " "SWISS MADE”.
The rope is in perfect condition
Outer box nearly mint condition
The serial number of the case is : PI 3669

I can say the movement is in perfect preserved and working condition.
It is completely cleaned and oiled, it works perfect and has been tested for a period of time and shows very accurate results. The movement is composite of 1 main plate and 3 bridges, one bridge which hold balance wheel. Second one which hold mainspring, third hold gear wheels they all create the movement of the watch.
To clean it every one part was disassembled, cleaned and oiled, then placed back very precisely.
The balance running very strong, absolutely perfect condition.
That movement has 17 Jewels, this means that the movement has 17 precious stones (17 rubies), the stones are on the places where it is a large friction in order to protect the metal from abrasion.
Inscriptions on the movement "17 jewels" "BREITLING WATCH LTD" "UNADJUSTED" “SWISS MADE"

It has Arabic numerals, black and red numbers on a white background, Very beautiful dial.
The dial is in perfect condition with no damages and no visible cracks on it.
The subs-dial has Arabic numerals also very clean condition.
Original dial in perfect condition
There is no fingerprints on the dial.
Inscription on the dial: BREITLING SPRINT 1/5

Watch weighs: 81.6 grams.
Watch weighs with outer case: 137.0 grams.
Diameter of the watch is 69.12mm. Excluding the crown.
