Breitling Premier Chronograph Ref. 790 Art-Deco

Uncommon configuration of the reference 790, a stunning art-deco numerals no lume Breitling Premier chronograph from the 1950s. This no-lume version with silver dial features collectible art-deco hour markers which are hardly ever seen on vintage chronographs/sports watches. Scroll down to read more about this watch.



Sturdy yet elegant design from the 50s, by many considered to be the golden age of chronographs. The watch has a notable wrist presence with its 35,5mm case diameter. Overall in good honest and unrestored condition. Note that the dial shows some signs of use as you can see in the pictures.

The watch features a desirable stainless steel stepped bezel case.
The case shows signs of use but nothing unusual considering its age of ± 70 years. The watch appears to be unpolished. The waterproof screw down case is stamped with its reference number. All lines of text still clearly legible.

Movement keeps accurate timing and the chronograph function works perfectly.

Comes on a vintage stainless steel ‘flat-link’ style bracelet.
