The offered chronograph Datora was first marketed as a full calendar in 1945. This model was then modernized in terms of design two decades later in 1967 with the introduction of a case with a synthesis of cushion and round shape. There is a tachymeter scale on the outer edge of the dial to read off speeds.
The Datora is in very nice condition and shows very few signs of wear. There are no deep scratches, dents, etc. Please use the high-resolution images for reference.
Technically, the chronograph works perfect.
Breitling was founded by Léon Breitling in Switzerland in 1884 and is now owned by the British financial investor CVC Capital Partners.
Since the 1930s, the manufacturer has been supplying on-board clocks and wristwatches specially developed for pilots with predominantly black dials and eye-catching luminous numbers to the Royal Air Force and, since the 1940s, to the US Army Air Force. The operating patterns and possible calculations made sense especially for pilots. Among other things, Willy Breitling introduced the second pusher as a stopping mechanism for the chronograph from 1934, which still sets the standard in the watch industry today.
The models Chronomat and its further development Navitimer from 1952 have complex bezels for special calculations by airmen such as fuel consumption, climb and descent rates and speeds. Also called a pilot's personal on-board instrument. With the Superocean Breitling marketed the first diving watch in 1958.
In 1979 the name and trademark rights of Willy Breitling passed to the entrepreneur Ernest Schneider, who had been producing watches under the Sicura brand since the 1960s. The manufacturer specialized in multifunctional mechanical chronographs including integrated quartz functions, for example the pilot's watch Emergency with an emergency transmitter especially for pilots.
The first mechanical diver's watch to be water-resistant to a depth of 3000 meters and the self-constructed chronograph movement received special public attention B01 for the 125th anniversary celebration in 2009.
