A Vintage Breitling is any out of production mechanical timepiece, with either a manual wind or automatic movement, mostly produced prior to 1976. Identification can be made via the reference number from the case back, which is normally 3 or 4 digits. The serial number, that provides production date, is usually 6 or 7 digits. NOTE: Serial numbers are often inside the case back – we do not recommend opening the case back. We provide production date with our estimate. Vintage also includes Breitling stop watches, aircraft clocks, and Montbrillant limited edition series that were sold with the old movements. Please feel free to contact us if you have a question about the reference number.
