Breitling Long Playing Chronograph

Breitling Long Playing Chronograph

SKU: VWS-1664

Here is a fabulous, all original Breitling Long Playing from 1973. The champagne sunburst dial is in very fine condition, with black lettering and barely any marks apart from some nearly invisible wear around the edge of the dial around 3 and 6 o’clock. It has three sunken subdials with radial brushing. The 3 o’clock subdial shows the chronograph minute count, the 6 o’clock subdial shows the chronograph hour count, and the 9 o’clock subdial shows the running seconds. The dial has golden bar hour markers with black contrast and lume dots at the outer ends, double at 12 o’clock. The black baton hands are in very fine condition, with the original lume. The dial has a tachymeter scale around the edge.


The gold plated case with the original crown and pushers and hidden lugs is in very fine condition. The face continues the sunburst pattern of the dial and shows only light overall wear. The sides are brushed and show some overall wear in particular a few marks at the bottom of the case on the left side. The stainless steel case back is in very fine condition with a few marks and scratches. 


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, the high grade Valjoux 7736 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in March 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


Vintage Breitlings are wonderful watches, and this version is a bit less busy than for instance the Navitimer. This is a very attractive watch on the wrist and it will serve its next owner very well.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
