More about Breitling 1004 Vintage Super Ocean 1004 Circa 1959 + Original Bracelet

This is a very rare vintage 1959 stainless steel Breitling Super Ocean 1004. It has an original integral mesh bracelet with a tang clasp, and an acrylic crystal. It has a screw-down Breitling emblem winding crown and a screw down case back engraved in the center medallion with "BREITLING – SUPEROCEAN," and the logo, and around the perimeter is "SWISS - AUTOMATIC – WATERPROOF – 20 ATM. 660 FEET." The 38.5 diameter solid three-body case, integral downturned lugs, bracelet, and cupped concave unidirectional bezel are polished/brushed. The bezel is black with baton hour markers and a luminous triangle at the 12 o'clock position. It has the original black dial and original steel broad arrow hands, a center sweep second hand, with uniformly aged radium inserts and radium dart hour markers with radium dots underneath applied faceted steel darts at the quarter hours, around a perimeter white stick baton minute/seconds scale. The dial markings "BREITLING GENEVE and SUPEROCEAN are clear and bold, with the applied polished steel Breitling "B" at 12 o'clock. The 11mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

This Breitling Super Ocean 1004 has a 21k automatic self-winding Transocean caliber B 125 (a base ETA caliber 2365), with fausses cotes embellishment, and a 21k gold rotor. It's constructed with 25 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, a shock absorber device, an index regulator, and a self-compensating balance spring.

This Breitling Super Ocean 1004 is the first Super Ocean ever produced in 1959. It was Breitling's first diving watch, and even the example in the online Breitling Museum doesn't have an original steel mesh bracelet.
