    Help With Value of Breitling Chronomat 217012

    Hi all. I have an opportunity to buy the Breitling Chronomat below from a buddy. The watch is in original unrestored condition and comes with a highly sought after mesh bracelet. He bought the watch several years ago and was told by the previous owner that it had been serviced, but I dont have documentation. It runs well and everything works as it should. I am trying to get an idea what this watch should be worth and whether it would be a good investment to increase in value over the years. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    It's a lovely watch, but almost no watch could be considered an investment - too many watches and two much fashion involved. If you like it buy it to wear, but for no other reason. As for price, you could look at completed sale on eBay and then subtract 10% to account for fees. While there are a few listed with the hope of getting US$8K+, the highest recent sale of a stainless model on a strap was accepted at offer under £3.5K. That is not a valuation, just a fact.

    IMO, investment - no, value - under 1K USD.

    Pass on it. The dial has been redone and they never came on a mesh bracelet.

    Thanks for the replies. I don't like the bracelet, so I was thinking about buying the watch head only. The seller wanted $1900 for the watch and bracelet. After seeing your responses, I think that I am going to pass.
