Buying a Pre-Owned Breitling

Why You Should Buy a Pre-Owned Breitling

Breitling is a Swiss luxury watchmaker renowned the world over thanks to their precision chronometers for use by aviators and deep-sea divers.

Founded in 1884 in Grenchen, where the brand’s headquarters remain to this day, Breitling timepieces are favoured by those who rely on precise calculations on a daily basis thanks to their unnerving accuracy and robust build quality.

Two of the earliest wristwatch collections offered by Breitling were the Navitimer and the Superocean, which were manufactured for aviators and divers respectively.

Breitling’s dedication to aviators and seafarers is found in their emblematic logo, which consists of an elegantly styled letter “B” which is surrounded by a set of wings and grounded with an anchor.

Despite this, the wide range of timepieces produced by Breitling is suitable for almost any occasion, and for over 130 years the brand has catered to a very demanding clientele, who are looking for luxury, reliability, sturdiness, and timeless aesthetics.

A Second-Hand Breitling is More Affordable

The exquisite Swiss engineering, precision timekeeping, and timeless aesthetics of a Breitling watch demand a hefty price tag.

A pre-owned Breitling from BQ Watches can be a much more affordable entry into the luxury watch market, and there is the added benefit that you can be sure that the timepiece will be authentic as all the watches we sell have been checked by our experienced watch experts.
