Known for it's many vintage chronographs, Breitling has continued to impress even the newer generation of collectors. One of my favorite lines is the Sprint series. The line was developed specifically for athletes. Timing ones performance and heart rate was a crucial task. And like it's main competitors, the larger 40mm size is an absolute treat. The steel case would put this watch around the 1960's. Later in the 70's, Breitling decided a lighter, resin based case was a necessary replacement as it is much lighter.
The dial of this Breitling Sprint 2010 is untouched. The markers and hands have their original tritium lume. The case is sharp although there is signs of use. The engraving is strong in the back indicating that the case is unpolished. The chronograph works as expected, stops and goes and resets at zero.
