Was passing by a vintage watch shop on my birthday two days ago and stumpled over this rather cool Breitling Navitimer with manuel Venus Calibre 178 movement.
The former owner received it from Greek King Constantin in 1970 when he won a Danish regatta. King Constantin had bought the watch from the – former – local Danish Breitling dealer, Klarlund (now Rolex AD).
Well, 1970 happens to be my year of birth and what coincedence buying it on my actual birthday – and with a royal history even!
47mm manual winding, fully serviced!
