Breitling is an institution in the watch world. Founded in 1884 by Leon Breitling, Breitling quickly rose to being recognized as one of the top manufacturers in the world, and especially in the field of tool and pilot watches.
The watch offered here, an uncommon Reference 1191 chronograph circa 1954-1955, is in amazing vintage condition. This example features a Venus 188 movement, and the dial and case are in mint condition – virtually untouched. The dial has also aged to a light cream patina. The configuration we have here for this reference doesn’t come up for sale very often – just take a look on google to see how many you can find – so grab this great example while it’s available!
