Description

What an Exceptional Breitling 1950’s Chronograph Ref;1190 Cal;188 Mint Rarity this Big 38 mm vintage watch is !

***** NO LONGER AVAILABLE *****

One of the rarer or harder to source early Bretling ref; numbers ,  the 1190 do not surface too often at all.
Then when they do ,  they are almost never in the condition that this stunner is!!
At a Big 38 mm’s  w.o.c. ,  this is about the perfect size for a vintage chronograph in many peoples view.

The family from which this superior quality Breitling came from could never remember their Father wearing this watch!
With both ‘adult children’ being in the late 50’s  ~ neither can recall the watch coming out of the drawer that is was kept in ,  apart from a couple of occasions when their Father proudly made a ‘big deal’ showing some of his mates.

Also ,  neither can recall how or when the watch came to be their Fathers yet the daughter believes that it was a gift from their Fathers Father in-law  {how rare that is!! lol} a few years after marrying the Father in-laws daughter.

The upshot of the above is that this stunning & Exceptional Breitling 1950’s Chronograph Ref;1190 Cal;188 Mint Rarity has hardly been worn at all since being made/sold !!
The condition of the entire watch back’s that fact up whole heartily !

Known as the Breitling Geneve Ref;1190 Cal;188  ~  this exact , & attractive,  font style of the  term/word  ‘Geneve’ is a seldom seen feature on Breitling and ‘from memory only’ ,  the ref;1190 may be the only Breitling chronograph model to feature Geneve as such.
Possibly not too  ~  yet Very few do.

The truly handsome dial is not only 100% original ,  it is guaranteed to be so!!
{our g’tees are backed up by Full refunds}.
Exceptional dial surface ,  Arabic numerals with the ‘lume’ having aged  ~  yet to my mind it actually add’s to the vintage aesthetic!!

All hands ,  including the lumed pencil hands , chrono hands & seconds sweep ,  are all original to the watch & the dial has not been changed or altered in any way shape or form since being made at the Breitling factory.

The ‘strongly down turned’  lug’s look absolutely great & set the watches overall vintage aesthetic off perfectly !!

The condition of the entire watch is outstanding!
The entire watch is stainless steel with the case being heavy gold filled & in nothing short of exceptional condition  ~  for a 65+ yr’s old chronograph wristwatch!

Note the ultra close up ,  apart from showing part of the m/ment ,  it is to show the remarkable condition on one part of a chrono that Always has ware ,  especially on a gold filled watch   ~   the underside of the pushers!
I can honestly not recall ever seeing a 1950’s chrono with it’s original pushers being in such mint condition!!
Apart from a little dust build up in part ,  both are as new.
With the entire watch being in remarkable condition.

Note the st.steel case back ,   even showing ultra close up of the case back ,  we still couldn’t show any scratches or marks!

Note also the gold filled case rim / edges where the case back attaches  ~  there isn’t a mark on it!!

The movement is the same.
This watch & it’s  Venus Cal;188 ,  appears to have been given the “Rolls Royce”  movement with the inner being also gold filled ,  which is rarely seen on other 1190 Breitlings!!!
Remarkable condition in every single aspect  & combined with other indicators   ~   this Ref;1190 seems to have “more things going for it”  that most others seen!
