More information

Established in 1933, Kronometer Stockholm was a prominent Swedish retailer and distributor for Breitling in Sweden. The company specialized in the import and sale of watches for both professional and civilian use, until it ceased operations in the seventies. Many of the Breitling watches featured both the Breitling and Kronometer Stockholm logos on their dials, while others displayed the Kronometer Stockholm logo exclusively.

Kronometer Stockholm sold Breitling chronographs watches to the government-run company Televerket. Resulting in the creation of a timepiece that is distinguished by the Kronometer Stockholm logo on the dial and the engraved text "Tillhör Televerket" on the case back, which can be translated to "Belongs to Televerket".
