Since his apprenticeship as a watchmaker, the man was almost obsessed with the idea of perfecting the measurement of short time with the help of special watches. It is therefore not surprising that as soon as his training was completed he set about making his own chronograph. Leon Breitling's career was destined to be like this. He designed other chronographs and built measuring tools for the watchmaking industry, and he was increasingly talked about in the profession.In 1884 appear the first chronographs bearing the signature of its inventor still manufactured in his native country in St Limier. In 1892 in the neighboring town, the Chaux De Fonds. the young industrialist creates the factory of watches Leon Breitling Montbrillant Watch its always by specializing in the chronographs.

The proposed model is a Breitling reference 817, a real Tool watch to collect. it is a steel case of 40 mn in diameter, with a large 60 mn rotating and bidirectional bezel. The immaculate black dial has luminescent painted Arabic numerals. A set of skeleton hands has an exceptional bell second hand. The movement is mechanical with manual winding, the Valjoux 236 with column wheel.

This is a beautiful technical and aesthetic object, in a rare condition.
