Chronomat Reference 0818 "Big Case" Score

Hello Breitling Forum Members. Wanted to share my newest Breitling acquisition. A completely NOS Unworn white dial panda Chronomat "Big Case" (48mm) Three Register Chronograph reference 0818 ca. 1967. I have paired it with a black leather strap with orange stitching from Gunny Straps. I've also posted a picture of my black dialed version that I've owned for about three years and was posted here previously.
I just had the watch opened up for the first time and the stunning Venus 178 Chronograph movement fully overhauled.
Its a bit large but quite a stunner I think...especially in this pristine all original, Unworn and completely untouched condition. It even has the protective purple wax on the baseball.

Gotta love auto correct...I meant "caseback'...not "baseball"

I bought it watch head only and purchased the custom black leather strap with orange stitching from Gunny Straps which are very high quality.
