Hi all,

Recently acquired this vintage rose gold 790 from eBay, this is my second Breitling (my first is E13360).
Upon receiving, the watch run five minutes fast per day, but fixed after demagnetize, now around ±10 sec per day. I noticed the crown and the push buttons are different colour of gold (yellow), not sure is this common around that time.
Also I can't find the "Swiss made" on the dial.
There are 2 internal cracks on the crystal (can't feel the crack on the surface).

Other than that, I think it is a nice vintage watch.

Thank you for looking.
