Why We Love it

Why We Love It

Stemming from a long line of Breitling Chronographs, the 765 line was introduced in 1963 with a larger, modernized design language that set it apart from its forefathers, allowing it to compete for consumer attention with the Omega Speedmaster and Rolex Daytona, amongst others. 

With a strong 40mm case and reverse-panda dial, this is a no-nonsense purpose built chronograph - the likes of which we wish Breitling still made today. Fitted with its 'red triangle' bezel and a supremely aged (likely original) acrylic crystal, this piece is a survivor, devoid of the common replacement and refinishing that plagues Breitlings from this era.

In short, honest, cool, and rare as hell. Don't miss it!

The Story

We've discovered in our many conversations with like-minded enthusiasts that when it comes to timepieces from Breitling, they either have "it," or they don't.

With polarizing designs and complicated dial aesthetics, a vast majority of collectors don't know what to make of Breitling chronographs.  For the most part, we're right there along with them - hell, we don't know how to use the sliderule feature on the Navitimer 806 any better than you do - but we know it is one hell of a watch, and one that is intrinsic to the history of 20th Century aviation.  Fortunately for us, Breitling also manufactured a range of timepieces in the 1960s and 70s with far simpler designs that are easier to wrap our heads around.  Chronographs such as the Top Time, Superocean 2005, Datora and this beauty, a Reference 765 Co-Pilot, stand in stark contrast to their Navitimer/Cosmonaute brethren, and made us think twice before dismissing vintage Breitling as universally unwearable.
