Vintage Breitling & Pre-owned Breitling Watches

brands-logo-breitling-140

Breitling, more so than any other Swiss watch brand is associated with aviation.

Breiting may have the distinction of introducing the first, and most well known “tool” watches; watches designed for a specific function, particularly as adjunct instruments for private, commercial, and military pilots.

Some of Breitling’s most well known and collectible vintage models include the 1950’s and 1960’s era Chronomat, the Navitimer and 24 hour Cosmonature version, as well as the very scarce and desirable AVI (Avigation) and Co-Pilot models. These large aviator chronographs are extremely desirable and have seen huge increases in value in recent years. Many of the classic Breitling models have been introduced in more contemporary versions. Used examples of these more contemporary models can be purchased at good discounts and represent good value in modern sporty chronograph and diver’s models.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Breitling watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
