worth documenting, these are the rarest of the rare; a 1945 Duograph ref. 762

"Duograph" was the Breitling brand for Rattrapantes

Thanks Fred, what movement is that, doesn't look like a Valjoux. Also did some this early have "Breitling" inscribed on the bridge and the Pat + on the crown? Interesting watch for sure, haven't seen anyone have one.

when I say rare, I mean rare; do not have one either and know nobody who does. the "PAT" on the crown refers to a patented crown mechanism that operates the rattrapante function by pushing the crown - as you see there is no protruding pusher in the crown and no 3rd chrono pusher ?
movement is a 14 lignes Venus 179. very rare & very, very nice.

Very interesting watch Fred. Looks like will fetch 10k+ even though the dial is not in the best of condition, very rare bird.

Btw thought Roff was supposed to be compiling a Breitling vintage reference article for us, Roff?:)

Interesting to note that there are no geneva stripes on the bridge like the one at auction in Monaco...
