The Breitling caliber 69 is a rare mecaquartz movement found in the Chronoracer Rattrapanté model (Ref: A69048). This movement was in watches that were sold around 2000 to 2002.
This caliber is based off the Frédéric Piguet caliber 1271. It is a hybrid mechanical/quartz movement. It gets power via the battery cell, but the rattrapante complication is mechanical. This caliber also utilizes a mechanical vertical clutch column wheel for the chronograph function.
