Offering an uncommon Brietling Wakmann Dial and apparently the only dual signed Breitling Wakmann model produced.

Putting this up as part of a consolidation of the collection. Have decided to reduce quantity and increase rotation frequency. I very much enjoy my Breitling Top Time 810 and that more than scratches my Breitling vintage itch. Nevertheless, this is a very handsome and oversized chronograph that is a pleasure to dress up or down with.

Background
Bought by myself from watch dealer Simon at Orologium in UK who sells a lot of vintage Breitlings.
It has been worn sparingly on rotation for the past year, about 2-3 times a month.
Original link from Orologium is here:
https://www.orologium.co.uk/breitli...n ... -407-p.asp
Not sure why it says available but rest assured that the watch is in my possession. Have posted some other pics on OF here: https://omegaforums.net/threads/no-love ... 691/page-8

Have seen the same watch previously offered on Mentawatches here as well:

Details
Breitling Wakmann Premier 765 from the 1960s
Three register Chronograph
Movement: Manual winding Venus 178
Case size (without crown): 38mm
Case + crystal thickness: 13.5mm
Lug width: 21mm
Comes with strap as pictured, worn only once.

Service
Last serviced by previous owner in 2019 and checked in early 2021 by Orologium's watch maker.
Condition report (pictures also form part of the description)
Dial overall is in fairly decent condition with even sprinkling of patina throughout.
Crystal is clean
Case and lugs: appears unpolished, no major dents
Lume: tritium lume has aged to a very nice charcoal grey, under UV it lights up and fades evenly
Hour hand has minor loss of lume
Breitling signed crown metal coating appears worn on underside as per picture
Chronograph starts, stops and resets without issue.
Chronograph second hand is just very very slightly off centre at 0 position.
Overall keeps time well.

Price/Payment
Asking price is USD 6300 OBRO
Payment via Wise (formerly TransferWise), I would prefer to receive funds in Singapore Dollars (SGD).
Price includes Fedex International Priority shipping with full insurance coverage (happy to discuss more details re: any shipping issues).

I will not be accepting returns so please ask as many questions as you like. Happy to send more videos/photos.

Located in Singapore.
On Instagram as tockingclock.

I have some references on Omega Forums. Watch is listed there too. PM me!

Thanks for looking and thanks Breitling Source for the space!

Moving on to pictures taken on the Fujifilm XT2, no post-processing done:
