Vintage Breitling Co-Pilot 765 CP circa 1966

SOLD

Great condition example vintage Breitling Co-Pilot ref 765 CP circa 1966. Featuring 41mm diameter case with screw down case back, round pushers, signed Breitling crown, beautiful condition original dial, and with rare split hours and minutes bezel. This is the classic aviator’s chronograph with large contrasting silver registers and distinctive oversized 15 minute register at 3 o’clock with 3 minute indications.

This model is much rarer than the more well known Navitimer model. Early versions of the co-pilot came with a black bakelite hours bezel, the next generation with steel hours bezel, and this very small production example from 1966, with it’s distinctive and very minty condition split hours and minutes rotating bezel. Like the navitimer, this model is powered by the Venus 178 caliber movement. The case back serial # 1.140,xxx corresponds to the 1966 production year.  A beautiful condition example in every respect, fitted with a sporty bone white strap with polished rivet accents. Guaranteed genuine and in excellent operating condition.
