Nice Breitling case in bakelite

The watch is in very good condition (!)
and is a rare model… (please read below)

The Breitling 41 caliber of the Montbrillant has 38 jewels.
A "mistake" has been done by Breitling on the dials of the very first ones: These had a 49 jewels indication (however they are equipped with the 41 caliber with 38 jewels).
Such a mistake seems incredible, but it is true.
This mistake hais been quickly corrected by Breitling.
Breitling offers a new dial if you send the watch for maintenance on these few hundred watches concerned.
Of course , this adds a collector value to the watch and I prefer to keep it in its original condition…
