    She sounds like a great find if mint condition - but this watch needs to be sent to Breitling or similar expert for a full overhaul/service. Even if in unused pristine condition, after 4yrs let alone 40yr, the oils & gaskets will be dried out, parts may have corroded - she needs a service. As for cost - dunno - best part of 400 Euros I'd say - but worth doing
