This ultra-rare first edition Breitling Chronomat was made for American Air Force officers by facilitator company 'Mervos' during WW2 and it was the first Breitling watch shipped over to the USA at the beginning of the war. This first edition has the name 'Mervos' on the dial, a feature that was left out of subsequent models, making this watch a real collector's item. This beautiful watch has an intricate dial, full of instrumentation used by pilots nearly a century ago.
THE PRICE IS $7000.00 USD AND THEREFORE THE PRICE WILL REFLECT THE EXCHANGE RATE.
