Hello, a while ago I started with a project when I bought a complete case and hands for the Breitling Superocean 2005. After a while I also found the dail so the Venus 188 movement Is left to find.

Can somebody help me with this Venus 188 movement so I can finish this project? I am also looking for Breitling Superocean 1004 and Superocean 807 parts. So all parts are wanted.

Please contact me by dm.

Thanks!

Denny

Venus 188 donors and moments are on eBay pretty regularly. Whether they have a Breitling branded bridge though is another question. Do you know what modifications you need to make to it for the ref 2005? If you are looking for an already modified 188 you’ll struggle, but you found the rest of the parts so who knows! Vintage parts are hard to come by, and on the forums, parts are only occasionally traded or sold, and even then probably restricted to longer term posters helping each other out.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I understand that I am a newbie overhere but I have all parts triple except the already modified movement. I am open for trades.

Do you realize that the modified movement you seek was a Breitling exclusive? That being a Breitling exclusive means only Breitling had those parts? That Breitling nor its vintage collaborators no longer have these parts. I’m guessing you will say yes to these questions.....
Those how might have a donor movement or by some miracle have the modified parts are very unlikely to trade or sell.
Don’t try to build the unbuildable especially something Uber rare at that. End of the day, you will end up with a lot of money in parts you can’t assembly to make you project complete and years later you still in that boat.
I know if I had that movement I would not sell the hardest part to obtain! I’ll wait you out till you give up and buy your parts!
Love your optimism though!

You'll have some competition from anyone who buys this

And I found a NOS movement for my Superocean 2005. It took me a couple of weeks but that is okay.

Thanks all for your help!
