I am no expert and new to the forum, but all Breitlings are desirable and the one you has always been a sought after model. Its worth at least 2500-3000 .if its has markets from the airforce to some that adds value. For a wide range example of prices check ebay and chrono 24.

Welcome aboard. I've deleted your other thread as one is sufficient. Pictures would be good - here's now to load some up -

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=66281

To be honest though, a lot of us here don't tend to give valuations as it's not an exact science, so the standard response is to check the likes of Chrono24 and eBay, though you're always best to concentrate on actual sold prices as opposed to what people are asking as often the two can be somewhat different.

You better know what you're doing when it comes to the early ESA quartz watches as they rarely are functioning properly and replacement movements are as scarce as hens teeth. 90% of them are sold not working, or partially working, and longevity is a crap shoot even if you find a good one. If the seller says "just needs a battery" or "untested" consider it broke. Buy one that the seller shows a picture of every mode of the quartz display, a movement pic, and the ability to change the analog time. All problem areas with these.

Yes i am sure i pm the poster to give him more details on how to approach sale. Including the fact if automatic much more desirability, saw both quartz and autos online. He did say it was working, even the quartz ones seem to bring a couple grand and more. But was surprised on how many militaries in the middle east gave them out.

Havent had any experience with Breitling quartz but i have a 70s Omega Mega Quartz that probably still keeps better time then anything made today. But back the i think it was 2 or 3 times the price of a mechanical one. But i think they set out from the onset to build the best quartz watch they could. Depending on the model. They were accurate from 1-5 seconds a month and many today stand up to that spec.
