On offer's a Breitling Top Time from some time in the early 70s.

The stainless steel case is excellent. 38mm without signed crown, 47.5mm lug-to-lug, it's perfectly sized and in essentially as-new shape. I don't know the history of this watch, but if it was worn more than a handful of times, I'd be stunned. The caseback marking still look brand new.

The dial and hands are perfect. Look at the pictures. I'm not sure what to say that the pictures don't. Full lume plots and full lume in the hands all match and glow/fade identically. Sunburst steel dial's incredible, as are the black subregisters. The presentation's as good as it gets in this model.

The Valjoux 7736 is operating very well, keeping excellent time. The top pusher's a little stickier than I'm a fan of, but it operates just fine, as does the bottom. Service history is unknown, and there are no marks—either scratched-in markings in the caseback, or notches on the screw heads—that you'd expect as a sign that someone's done anything. My apologies for not having pictures—I managed to get it open last night and should've taken pictures then, but can't seem to pry the back off presently. The dustcap's there, the inner caseback and movement are signed, and everything's correct. I'll try to post pictures later.

Again, I don't know the watch's history, but I'd be stunned if this did much more than sit in a drawer for the last 45+ years. Pictures should make the condition totally clear.

Asking $4200 ONO. Happy to provide more pictures, answer questions, provide references, etc. Watch and I are in Indiana/USA; US sales strongly preferred, though willing to work with international buyers if shipping can be agreed on. Thanks for looking, and to Jeff/CT for the space.

Estimated Private Party Value $2,213 — $4,175
