Looks fine to me. I’m wearing the same watch right now in fact.

Looks OK the price is high for a GP model. The plating is worn on the lugs. I think you can do better.

Hi Guys,

I come back to you as I am looking for a vintage top time reversed panda dial reference 810.

What do you think of this one available on C24?

https://www.chrono24.fr/breitling/breit ... 344906.htm

I have asked additional pictures (caseback and mechanism) that I will post here when I will get it.

Thanks to the experts of the forum for the help.

Regards,

Thanks Fred !

I received more information this morning. The watch has been refurbished and overhauled.

The dial has been relumed, case polished and crown replaced. What do you think about the polishing on the pics?

Certainly doesn’t look relumed. Pretty sure it isn’t. Case polishing is also pretty mild. These dont have sharp edges on the lugs so you can get away with a bit of a polish.

Thanks guys for your comments.

Please find below others pictures received. I will upload movement pictures when I will receive it.

I am also looking to the following one (Mark 1.2) on ebay with box and papers. I noticed that there is a scratch on the crystal and that the small left hand seems different than the other ones. Is it possible to find small vintage hand to replace it?

Moreover, it seems that it has never been serviced. How much can I expect for the service and what do you think of this one in comparison to the first one?

I have a very small preference for the specific hands of the Mark 1.1 version that look more vintage :wink:

Hi Breitling experts,

Do you have any comment on the movement? I am not a specialist and I want to be cautious before to make an offer.

Thanks ;-)

Hi guys,

I am very new in vintage Breitling so I would really appreciate your comments, if any, on the mechanism picture I posted some days ago.

It looks fine and pretty clean for me but I want to be sure as I will not be able to have a look to the watch before buying it (the watch dealer is located in South Africa).

Thank you for your help.
Regards,
