You can find Breitling watches on Chrono24 starting at about 550 USD. These are mostly vintage watches from the 1950s or quartz watches from the early 1980s. Timepieces with the characteristic Breitling design, like the quartz-powered Colt Oceane, are available in mint condition from about 1,600 USD. You can buy an automatic Colt from the same era for approximately 2,000 USD.
Current models are noticeably more expensive. The three-hand version of the current Superocean, for example, changes hands for roughly 4,000 USD. The price climbs to just over 6,300 USD for the Superocean Heritage Chronograph. Classic cult chronographs like the Navitimer and Chronomat will set you back anywhere from 7,000 to 38,000 USD, depending on whether it's made of stainless steel or gold.
Which Breitling watch is the most affordable?
The most affordable watch in the current Breitling catalog is the Endurance Pro, which you can buy unworn on Chrono24 for about 2,700 USD (as of early 2023). For another 500 USD, you could own an Aviator 8 Automatic 41 in the standard version with a black dial. Classic Breitling models like the 43-mm three-hand version of the Avenger or the Chronomat 32 ladies' watch come with a similar price tag, approximately 3,300 USD.
How much is the most expensive Breitling?
The most expensive Breitling ever produced is the Breitling for Bentley Flying B, which demands an investment of over 200,000 USD. This is because the watch is "iced out," i.e., completely covered with diamonds, including the dial and bracelet. The Grenchen-based manufacturer produced only 50 of these pieces.
As of early 2023, the most expensive watch in the current Breitling catalog is the Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Willy Breitling, which has an MSRP of 67,000 USD.
Are Breitling watches a good investment?
Breitling watches are considered to be relatively stable investments. Some models have even increased in value in recent years. However, at an average of 3% to 10%, the rate of increase here is significantly lower than that of industry leaders such as Rolex and Patek Philippe, for example.
