On offer is this stunning and iconic timepiece from Breitling’s professional line. This a beautiful and mint example of this much sought after timepiece… the most loved by far of the previous generation analogue/digital professional line. This is the later version so it enjoyes the highly accurate SuperQuartz B78 movement, accurate to an incredible +/-15s per year or less!
This is a very exciting opportunity, as this is no ordinary Breitling B1 offering! If you are a fan of this model then read on…
When we received this watch I couldn’t believe its amazing condition and completeness of the set it came with. I was so impressed that I actually kept it in my own collection for a while. However, finally I've decided I just can't justify keeping it, as I already have an Omega equivalent (X-33 Gen 3).
This is the more desirable stunning blue dial version. It’s also one of the very last ones made and sold, confirmed by the late 2005 stamps etched on the bracelet and case. The condition of the watch is just amazing, it has obviously been extremely well cared for and judging by the condition of the boxes and accessories (all immaculate), extremely loved too!
MEGA BONUS: As I originally thought I’d be keeping this watch I recently had it sent to Breitling for a full service (at great cost). As you’d expect from Breitling, the watch has come back looking as good as new and with 2 years international warranty!
OK, so let’s get to the list of goodies that make this watch so unique (as seen in the last picture):
1. Outer Breitling yellow card box
2. International warranty booklet
(Stamped and dated 06/2008)
3. Breitling old parts, pressure test
4. Original Chronometre hangtag
(with actual model number)
5. Inner Breitling bakelite box
6. Documentation mini-folder
7. Breitling B1 user manual
8. Breitling service booklet
9. Original bezel protector
10. Breitling polishing cloth
11. Chronometre certificate
12. Authorised distributors
13. Slide rule instructions
14. Spare bracelet link(s)
15. Bakelite info leaflet
16. Breitling travel case
17. Slide rule unit
As you’ll probably appreciate, it just doesn’t get any better than this! This really is a 100% FULL SET and a real treasure to any “die hard” Breitling B1 fan. I’ve never seen one this complete in all my years of trading. Many sets weren’t even sold this complete back in the day… so imagine trying to find something like this all these years later!
These later SuperQuartz (Calibre B78 models) are getting harder and harder to find, and are constantly creeping up in value. This is a truly unique opportunity to acquire an exceptional example (possibly the best ever) of this much sought after timepiece!
