Here we are 4 years into the 5 - how's that boast progressing??


from what i have seen Breitling vintage chrono prices have gone up 5 to 10% per year over the last 5 years or so

good watches can still be bought for 'steal' prices if you have patience and persistence

Another year later (almost)

Good examples (from my memory)

All black digital 765 AVI was sold a few months ago for "only" 8K , compared to $7100 in 2009 , the watch that originally started this thread. Personally i'd expected more of an increase from 2009 to 2013 ?

V72 recently sold for $12K on ebay and $15k through christies, both watches in good / great condition

A 70ies rattrapante recently fetched $40K i. A auction

An all black 806 typically fetches now between 3800 - 4500

Black white 765 avi's in pristine condition fetch 4750

There's a 1962 b/w cossie for sale right now, asking $9k (was 12) should sell for ?

Reasonable 1765 just sold for 3.8K euro (5k usd)



Any other reference prices to revisit in 5 years from now ?

I'm blanking on a 1970s era rattrapante. What model am I forgetting?

I am not commenting on authenticity

while 1 was searching (I cant find it on christies anymore) I found the same watch on Antiquorum

"Split Seconds Chronograph Top Time" Breitling Genève, “Duograph, Top Time”, Split-Seconds Chronograph, case No. 1354591, Ref. 764. Made circa 1970. Fine, stainless steel, water-resistant gentleman's wristwatch with round button splitseconds chronograph, register and tachometer scale.

There shouldn't be any question on the authenticity of that one, which maybe why I put it out of mind. And it is a shame they don't post more images in the on-line listings, though it might have been on purpose.

As for myself, I wouldn't trust a Duograph that didn't have "Duograph" on the dial. I notice in the 1969 catalog that only the three-register Co-Pilots and some Top Times don't have a model name on the dial. Likewise, all the reference numbers have been updated. Und, three-minute ticks on the minute totalizer were dropped around 1963.

If it was a Rolex, it would cost much more as 200.000,- $ .


Because comparing a Breitling to a Rolex is like comparing a cow chip to a diamond.
