Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to read my thread. I'm looking for a beater watch, and one of my prime contenders is the Breitling Colt II.
I'm considering several models, including the A17040, the A17360, and the A32350 GMT, and even the quartz A74380. These are all sometimes available for around $1000-1200, which seems like a pretty good buy for this watch, even considering that most of them are very well worn. I'm not bothered by scratches and dings, even lots of them, but will insist that the watch be 100% original.
My question for you Breitling experts - is there any reason this is a bad idea? Anything I should know about this particular model or vintage, such as known, recurring problems, or prolific counterfeiting?
I'm new to Breitling and the size of these classics is really perfect for my needs, and I love the idea of having a watch I don't need to worry about scratching.
Thanks in advance, guys!
