    Breitling For Bentley GMT VS. Rolex Daytona

    I really like the look of the Breitling for Bentely GMT. I really like the bezels on the Bentley's, they're different looking. I'm curious how you guys feels this watch stacks up against the Rolex Daytona's. I love the white gold daytona with the black face and red hands but that's way out of my price range. I've heard rolex's hold their value better, is that true? I've also looked at the Breitling Chronomat B01. Opinions please.

    The Rolex Daytona will certainly hold its value far better than the Breitling for Bentley. Watches co-branded with car companies may be harder to sell on the second-hand market, for instance check how well the Ferrari Panerai collaboration has fared. Unless you own a Ferrari or Bentley, then by all means..

    Also may be worth considering a Zenith El Primero, or a pre-owned AP Royal Oak or Vacheron Overseas.

    For my buying a watch is a matter of taste and the value is just nice to know. Choosing between these two it would definitely the Daytona! The watch is an icon and with a very balanced dial. I would prefer the steel version with black dial.

    Daytona without a doubt. Much better movement and a design that will never go out of style. AD's around my neck of the woods will reduce some of the Bentley models by as much as 50%.

    I thought this was a high-end forum.......

    but Daytona is better......much more sought after and will hold their value better. Bentley is a gimmick watch IMHO

    You don't view the Bentley as a high end watch? Why not? Do you not view any Breitling as a high end watch? What's gimmicky about it?

    the bentley has an eta based movement which is inferior qualitywise to a rolex 4130, I am not even talking about resale value. You lose more money with an eta based or powered watch than with a Rolex.
