Offering an uncommon Brietling Wakmann Dial and apparently the only dual signed Breitling Wakmann model produced.

Putting this up as part of a consolidation of the collection. Have decided to reduce quantity and increase rotation frequency. I very much enjoy my Breitling Top Time 810 and that more than scratches my Breitling vintage itch. Nevertheless, this is a very handsome and oversized chronograph that is a pleasure to dress up or down with.

Bought by myself from watch dealer Simon at Orologium in UK who sells a lot of vintage Breitlings.
It has been worn sparingly on rotation for the past year, about 2-3 times a month.
Original link from Orologium is here: ... -407-p.asp
Not sure why it says available but rest assured that the watch is in my possession. Have posted some other pics on OF here: ... 691/page-8

Have seen the same watch previously offered on Mentawatches here as well: ... ronograph/

Condition report (pictures also form part of the description)
