Hi guys,
I am looking at this Breitling Sprint but I cant find much on that reference:
https://ticktage.com/product/breitling-sprint-zorro/

Is that really a 2000-33? Does it look correct to you?

Thanks for your help!

I looked at the website that has the watch for sale for some more pics. And i checked it against Benno Richters book. A couple of issues, it is described as rose gold plated, not sure if Breitling ever did rose gold plating, can easily find out between the lugs there should be marks there for the type of plating yg for yellow gold and thickness of the plating. Another issue i have is that it described as a Top Time but it has Sprint on the dial, i think it needs to be one thing or the other. The sprint “zorro” , the ref 2010, according to the catalog has round pushers and the top time “zorro” ref 2003.4, has squared pushers. The watch case back and being described as a ref 2000.33 from the Toptime collection does not really add up with sprint on the dial. Also the engraving on the case back seems a bit inconsistent. I am not an expert on these so am just sharing my observations. Below pics from the catalog i looked at.

the Zorro dials were avaialble for both the 2000 and the 2003 - and we have never seen a dial marked “Top Time” like the one pictured in the 1969 catalog, all were marked “Sprint”.

see no apparent issue with the OP example, if that case has been restored it has been done perfectly.

Thanks @watchfred
You posted a very similar model in August 2016 but without the red second hand. Did Breitling produce the 2000-33 with and without red hands?
