Hi, new here.

I'm a vintage watches fan from Barcelona.

Just been offered what it seems a good deal in a Breitling 1190 and, since it would be my first Breitling vintage chronograph I wanted to check some information about them.

Through Fratello Watches and an "Experts interview" on Breitling I discovered this site, so I'd like to ask your help.

I attach the pictures. I guess the crown is not correct, since it's quite out, but I assume this and could try to look for a good one.

The movement is a correct Venus 188, wondering about the signature on the bridge.

What I would like to know mainly is if the caseback engraving looks good to you or should have the serial number in the outside. I've seen quite a few on the net like this, but my knowledge about Breitling vintage watches is not very much. I collect (on my budget) vintage chronos but can't say I'm an top expert spotting fakes. :oops:

Thanks in advance and greetings to everyone here. All opinions or details welcome. Hope to keep on learning here from now on.

Looks perfectly kosher to me. Assume there is a serial number on the inside of the caseback?

Thanks, guys.

Happy to read that.

I also assume there will be a serial number inside the caseback. I did not ask it to the seller. Should have done. I'm still in time.

After this comments I'll get it. In a couple days I'll have it here and we'll do better pics to introduce myself in this site.

Thanks again. Anyway, if someone else has a different opinion on the watch, let me know.
