This hansome CORDURA Sports Watch is a variant sports model designed & created by SICURA S.A. It has a white face with blocky grid. It features a red/black rotating bezel, which complements its white face. The graphic red, black & white color scheme is a fitting choice for a sports watch!

SICURA built a strong alliance with BREITLING when SICURA CEO, Ernest Schneider took over & redeemed BREITLING from its near dissolution in 1979.

Schneider's game changer was the introducion of 3 new models: the BREITLING Jupiter, Mars & Pluto chronographs - all designed under SICURA specifications. After this success, Schneider decided that the SICURA brand has more potential when fitted into the inner workings of BREITLING than by itself!

At one point in its history, a previous owner did a custom job of covering the back of the case with anti-rust black enamel - a spartan but practical solution to metals prone to corrosion.

We cannot guarantee the effectiveness of its waterproof closure because this watch is vintage.
