Hello everyone,,,
I've wanted to purhcase a nice watch for sometime and have been torn between a Tag Heur Carerra and a Breitling Transocean. After doing some searching online I've decided to go with a transocean and have came across the below watch and have a few question I'm hoping you can help me out with.

How concerned should I be that the original box and paperwork are not available?

Or is this just more necessary if I was planning on selling the watch in the future? Which I'm not planning on.

How suitable is this watch for everyday?

How do you think the watch is priced all things considered?

Are there any specifics I should be requesting of the store prior to purchase? I did request some better high resolution pictures yesterday.

Thanks in advnace,..

If its a keeper, and the price and condition reflect a value that goes along with it not having box + PW; then yes.... buy it.

Its only a big deal to me if I'm concerned about future value.

I’d request additional photos. Also, I’d request a 15-30 second video showing the watch second hand pass over the 12:00 position to make sure the minute hand lines up with a minute marker. The video will also show you the movement of the watch (like 4hz / 8 beats per second).

I'd say, if you're not in a hurry, look for one with the whole package...

Always worth it!

Don't know where you are located but if you really want this watch, I'd recommend contacting Breitling with the model & serial number to confirm it's all OK. (it keeps puzzling me people "misplace" the authenticity paperwork of items valued thousands of GBR / EUR / USD!).

I'm in the UK and BUK have always been very helpful!

Cheers,
PG

Me too. Totally bizarre to me that someone will buy an expensive watch that invariably comes in a nice box with quality paperwork, and thinks, "No point in keeping any of this box and paperwork stuff, so I'll just chuck it out". :huh Total head-scratcher to me that one.
