Not being familiar enough with this model it’s hard for me to assess it. Stated as a 769 Chronomat with unmarked Venus 175 movement. Any thoughts would be great.

Cheers

I am suspicious of the Chrono hand. It looks too thick/wide. Based on other images I looked at from the 40’s.

Inside caseback

None of the Breitling serial charts i could find seem to go back this far. They all seem to start at 1944 with a higher # than this. But that would make sense assuming this is supposed to be early ‘40’s.

I also wonder about the serial number. Seems to reflect early 40’s ... but is it typical to be stamped inside the caseback on these models or should it be on the outside ? Is it the original stamp ? Seems so crisp.

Should be like this ....

So a buddy of mine bought that 769 and is quite happy with it but is on the hunt for a Chrono sweep hand. So if anyone has a lead or a contact who might have one .... it would be great to hear from you.
