BREITLING GMT Ref. 812 Chronograph - 1969


One characterful pilot! Here we have Breitling GMT Chronograph Ref. 812, a wonderful example of GMT chronograph by Breitling which was a bit ahead of its time. Breitling have produced beautiful mechanical chronographs in the 60s and 70s and the Ref. 812 is surely one of the most odd and futuristic out there. The 47.5mm oversized pilot was intended to steal some limelight from the increasingly popular GMT-Master. The model utilized a Valjoux 72, plexi crystal, inner rotation two-tone bezel, lime GMT hand, and fluo-orange accents. The result is a practical GMT chronograph which can be observed from space. This Breitling GMT Ref. 812 chronograph is a a rare and in this condition absolute unique timepiece. It’s a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling, and a great reference to aviation. This is the real deal, everything you would want in a vintage chronograph.
