A rather targeted advert for this watch just popped up on my feed:

https://www.breitling.com/nl-en/watches/premier/to...

I must say it’s stunning to my eyes. I’ve long wanted a vintage style chrono and do like the top time very much. The deus link is neither here nor there but I do like the script on the outer face.

My question is: is it worth the money and indeed will it hold its value going forward? I can afford It but I’ve never paid more than a few hundred for a watch and we’re living in uncertain times so it’d be fairly annoying to overpay on the first place and then lose again if I needed to sell.

Also, there seems to be a few hundred quid difference depending where my vpn decides I’m located. What would be the best route to securing the best deal?

TIA

Looks great.

Online only, so probably no discounts, and limited to this month.

You are likely to get stung for more than a few hundred quid if you order it from abroad - the cost of insured postage will also be significant.

Who knows what will happen on the secondary market. I’d say more likely to drop a few quid than gain (like most things) but unless you are intending to sell it I don’t think it matters too much. It’s not going to be worth £200 in a few months or anything like that. The Zorro dial ones seem to have held their money.

There are two ways you can look at it:

1. You like it, you can afford it. Go for it.

2. It's nice, but it's not a Rolex.

Obviously, number 2 is the watch snob's way of looking at it, and it's ridiculous. However, for some people, it's a factor.

It’s one of those watches I would want to see in the flesh, I think it will either be an epic win or gopping mess. Have to say from the photos I think it looks epic!

I don’t think it’s going to be online only as Jura are listing them as in stock

I like that and its not the sort of Breitling that is likely to be faked I would imagine.
