FS: Vintage Breitling Monbrillant monopusher chronograph

I´m selling this beautiful and very rare "Breitling" montbrillant chronograph made before 1920. This is one of the first wrist chronographs ever created by the company, it was before their stamped their watches Breitling on the dial. The case measures 40 mm without the crown, unfortunately, the hinge that is holding the case back is broken, but this has no effect on the case what so ever it is just an aesthetic issue. The montbrillant movement is running great, it is clean and gorgeous. Someone has replaced the lugs in the pas, probably in the 1940´s to fit a larger strap, the porcelain dial has a tachymetric scale so it was probably used as a pilot watch. The dial and the hands are all original and unrestored, the dial has no cracks and the blued hands are also without any damage. This is really a rare and beautiful piece for someone who can appreciate these early attempts to create a chronograph on the wrist.
If you have any questions than please contact me , asking price is 1500 EUR or BEST OFFER
