  • Description


This is a BREITLING Extraordinarily Special Limited Edition US Air Force 50th Anniversary Model Wristwatch. It has a blue sapphire dial and a special blue and white enamel label by 3 o’clock to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the US Air Force. This is a jumbo chronograph model. The dial and the insert is blue. It has the red Breitling name on it. This is an exceptionally rare and special watch! This Original Breitling Chronomat is one of a very limited run of 50 watches ever made celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the US Air Force. It is exceptionally exciting that we were able to acquire this watch which was given to 50 of the top military personnel in the air force to celebrate this special occasion (they were likely generals in the air force). What makes this unique is that it is the only Breitling watch, and probably the only watch we have ever seen, where the back of the watch is engraved with not only “limited series,” but also “not for sale”. Meaning, this watch was not made for sale of any kind. This classic timepiece dates back to 2002 and is encased entirely in precious brushed Stainless Steel. The case measures approximately 39mm (diameter) x 14mm (high). This very rare and highly desirable wristwatch features a blue dial and has hour, minute, second, date, and chronograph functions. This amazing, Automatic Movement powered watch is enclosed by its original Stainless Steel Breitling Pilot bracelet that measures approximately 20mm (wide) and can fit up to a 8-inch wrist. The back has the unique stamps and labels. It has an automatic high quality perpetual movement, floating diving bezel. It is virtually impossible to come by this extremely Limited Edition timepiece in Brand New, Unworn Condition such as this one. It comes in a beautiful mahogany display box. Not only will this extremely rare and collectible timepiece hold its value well, but it will make a lasting impression on all who gaze upon it!

As the leading model within the Breitling collection, the Chronomat has rapidly proven its self as the undeniable reference in highly specialized field of chronograph mechanical watches. Originally created to equip the famous Frecce Tricolori elite flight team, Chronomat has advanced over the years both technically and aesthetically, while maintaining its unique styling, originally guided by the demands of glorious Italian pilots. The Chronomat is instantly recognizable for its special rider-tab bezel; its horizontal profile, extremely ergonomic shape; and above all its highly distinct dial fitted with instrument-panel type totalizers. The Chronomat is "propelled" by the powerful Breitling Caliber 13 - probably the world's finest self-winding chronograph movement with regard to both reliability and precision.
