For restoration or to be harvested for its parts as the movement likely does not run given its condition. Additionally it's difficult to set the time and the dial moves when doing so. This vintage Chronosport Breitling UDT Sea Quartz has a matte black "T SWISS MADE T" signed dial that shows discoloration and considerable wear, particularly around the edges. The lume on the dial and hands, which no longer glows after being exposed to bright light, has aged gracefully. Please note that while nearly visually imperceptible in person some lume is missing on the minute hand, which can be seen in the pictures.
The black bezel, which ratchets counterclockwise, looks great with the lume pip complementing the patina on the dial and hands nicely. The coated all stainless steel Monnin case is in good condition with the exception of some loss of coating. The outer edge of the case back is stamped 20 ATM. ALL STAINLESS STEEL SWISS MADE" with "80190" and "9682 stamped in the center.
The inside of the case back is stamped "BREITLING GENEVE" followed by "BREVET + 503305, "M. The crystal shows scratching and gouging. The Breitling stamped quartz controlled movement likely does not work given its poor condition. It's probable that the movement will need to be replaced.
And while the screwdown crown unscrews and screws back down perfectly as it should, setting the time is difficult and the dial moves when trying to do so. This watch measures approximately 41 mm excluding the crown, approximately 45.5 mm including the crown and approximately 20.5 mm between the lugs. Case thickness, measured from the bottom of the case back to the top of the bezel, is approximately 10.5 mm. The crystal adds no measurable thickness.
Because the movement likely does not run and will need to be replaced and the time is difficult to set with the dial moving when trying to do so, a complete restoration is required. As such there are no warranties, express or implied, attached with the sale of this watch. Vintage means old and while my personal belief is that old-school means better quality and workmanship, things can and do go wrong from time to time. For this watch that time is now. Any servicing costs going forward are your responsibility.
