I just pick up this Cordura sea-gull
wrist watch and from my knowledge I know some got the breitling
movement in it any one know the marking of
breitling? I'm at work now and no camera to take the picture and no tools to open the back.
A Vintage Cordura Sea-Gull Diver Wristwatch by Breitling Sicura.
IT IS NOT BREITLING QUALITY, BUT IT HAS SOME VALUE, READ ON....
100 years of watchmaking and Breitling tradition was not about to vanish off the face of the Earth, however. In 1979, the Breitling name was taken over by Ernest Schneider of the Sicura firm in Grenchen. Willy Breitling's two sons, Gregory and Alain, were too young to take over the business.
Schneider reaffirmed to the public that Breitling was worthy of their confidence. He showed them that the original philosophy was unchanged and that special focus was, as always, given to the flying sports. A pilot himself, Schneider conferred with other pilots and introduced the Jupiter, Pluton and Mars chronographs in 1980. The market at this time wanted electronic watches, so these watches had quartz movements.
Thanks Andy I found this as well
I just need to find the markings to make sure its
got the breitling movement.
watch runs so far and if I find Schneider markings on it its breitling for sure?
I know is not the top breitling movement but I see
