Greetings all. I wanted to ask for some advice -- I found a nice looking older Chronograph online located in Ukraine. The owner has a small online shop and lots of positive feedback. He didn't know the year of the watch so I looked it up from the serial -- appears to be a 1950 vintage. This said I cannot find an identical watch online -- small differences such as...

The B above the Breitling is not raised -- most are. However, some are not, but those which are not raised have Cadette written on the bezel. This watch has it engraved only on the inside of the gearbox. Lastly, it does not say Swiss Made as far as I can see.

Saw video of the watch running and it looked strong. Any idea if this watch is authentic?

Thanks for any help and guidance.

Yes looks fine but has the wrong hands on it. Should be a handset with luminous material to match the dial.

Gotcha. Thanks. For the first time I just found one with the handset you described. Interesting. Everything else is the same. Any idea on price range for this watch?
