Fresh from being serviced, this Breitling Cadette gives you a good vintage chronograph without spending five figures.  Model reference 1155.


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1968.


The Cadette was more of an entry level chronograph from Breitling.  True, it uses the same movement as the more expensive Top Time, but it saved some money by using a chromed case rather than stainless steel (although many of the Top Time’s were gold plated anyway).  The chrome does show the wear and tear of fifty plus years, and if this is not appealing to you then you are better to upgrade to a different model, but many people like the patina look and the Cadette is ideal in that case.  The dial is original and good, with just a slight mark near 200 on the tachymetre outer scale.  The Valjoux 7730 movement is signed, as is the inner and outer case back, and even the crown is original (albeit with the plating completely worn off).  The steel blue grey leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
