Breitling Toptime Tropical Thunderball
This Breitling Toptime " Thunderball ' panda dial chronograph was the same model Toptime worn by Sean Connery in James Bond's Thunderball, but was modified for with additional Geiger counter for the film. These watches were introduced in 1964. This model is an earlier example with Venus 188, which later became 7733.
This example came from the Son of the original owner, who was in his 70's. He was given it by his mother from her husbands estate. The watch was largely kept in a drawer until we purchased it, hence the condition.
Rarely do these have a clean white outer scale as this one, and near perfect matte dial which is turning brown. It is really hard to do justice only in pictures.
The watch is in all original state with original signed crown, unpolished caseback with minor scratches.
The subdials are the more desirable compact disc style, in perfect condition shape.
The watch is paired on a soft grey Molequin strap.
