Breitling Superocean II

Have just ordered myself one of these as a weekend/2nd watch. I havent gone for the yellow insert though, played it safe and ordered black.

This is interesting...

I was just about to post seperately a thread called something like 'what watch deals are out there at the mo' and up pops this!

Looks nice to me. My kind of thing.

I like chunky, steel bracelet type watches with a lot of character... I'm not keen on these very slight, snakeskin type strap watches that are popular!

What was the deal MB?

Anyone spotted some crazy bargains online or anything? I know someone (Scuba I think) had a local dealer doing 50% off on some nice ones not long ago.

Thanks
Matt

Ok, the watch can be bought with the basic rubber strap (as pictured) for 2K, it can bought with a bracelet for 2.3K or with the ocean racer rubber strap (which is basically a rubber strap with some holes in and a very nice clasp and not the standard buckle) for 2.23K this is the one im going for.

The prices I have mentioned are from a high street retailer (goldsmiths) and they will happily do 10% down and the balance on interest free credit over 3 years. If you pay cash/credit card they will knock of 10%, or if you know someone in the trade and they are not that hard to find and you have hard cash you will be able to get 20% off of Breitling.

Personally I will by it from the shop, bung them a grand and pay the balance on a new credit card, and pay it off within the 16 interest free time period. I have seen the watch in the flesh and it is a belter, this model has literately just been released

They look great, as do most Breitlings, i love divers style watches for casual / weekend wear.

It's a pity Breitling's movements are made by Swatch though, although they have just released their very first in house movement - about time after 125 years!

So is Omega and various others. I had reason to mail Omega bout a watch and they informed me about swatch being the movment manufacturer. Cant remember the other brands off the top of my head.

absolutely, many of the main brands buy in 3rd party movements. in fact very few make their own.

still great packaging though.
