    Thoughts on this vintage 18k breitling 789 chronograph-opinions& help needed

    Hello,

    Thank you for clicking in..!
    I am considering purchasing the below watch for a bit under $2K.
    It is missing a screw, crown is not original, and needs servicing to run correctly.
    Could anyone who is well versed in breitling watches shed some light on this watch? (i.e. authenticity, condition of dial, and etc.)
    Is it worth buying and putting it through service?

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    watch is authentic and seems all correct. bear in mind the 789 were one of the smaller Breitling chronographs of the 1940s and would be considered very small today - iirc 32 or 33mm, reflected in prices these typically achieve, about half the asking price you quote.
