The Breitling 817 was introduced in 1975 specifically made as a tool watch for Italian Army Helicopter pilots

The bezel on this Breitling 817 is manufactured entirely of aluminium, this one piece bi-directional rotating bezel with a sixty-minute graduation is black PVD coated and was made according the military specifications, just like the rest of the watch.

The entire watch is in good condition, especially considering its Army issued status. The back of the case is probably the most important piece of the watch, it’s very well preserved with the following military engraving; “E.I” (Esercito Italiano) which translates to “Italian Army”, along with the watch it’s military stock number – in this case;0534

These Breitling 817 Italian Army Chronographs were never made available to civilians on the open market and very little pieces have surfaced so far or are offered for sale. Only 500 pieces ever were manufactured with most decommissioned and/or destroyed, making this a very, very rare military issued Breitling Chronograph.

This watch comes with an additional strap, for more information please dont hesitate to contact our boutique.
