Breil was founded in Milan in 1939 by Innocente Binda and the initial product was a line of alarm clocks, with wristwatches first being launched in 1942. In 1956, Innocente Binda undertook his “Eiffel Tower watch test,” whereby he dropped some of his watches from the Eiffel Tower, 302 metres from the ground, and noted that they survived the ordeal still working.
At some stage in the earlier Breil period, it seems that along with Panerai, the company supplied watches to Italian Naval divers, and indeed, dive watches, along with chronographs, have been a mainstay for Breil from at least as early as the late 1960s.

This Chronograph is amazing, almost like it was new! The case got some small signs of wear but really is amazing considering its age. The dial is as made for the summervibes! The dial is flawless and ready to reflect the sunlight. There are some light, small(!) signs of wear on the crystal and bezel but it's hard to capture with the eyes. This watch really is a stunner!
