Please do share your knowledge on this relation between Breitling & Meister! I would be curious to see other models.

Founded in 1881 by Emil Meister in Zurich, Switzerland (3 years before Breitling), Meister is initially specialized in the trade of jewellery and silverware.

After four generations of development, Meister is now represented by three stores over Zurich and is selling gold and diamonds jewellery, high end watches, silver and cristal glass objects, and also procelain.

During the 50’s and 60’s, Meister has been retailer of Breitling watches and it seems that Meister was added to some dials (Meister was also added onto some Speedmaster dials).

The only Breitling I have found with a Meister signature is a Chronomat ref 808 from 1961:
