    Breitling out, Oris in.

    Hi all

    I purchased my Breitling Colt A73380 in 2007. Back then I immediately fell in love. I wore it for about 6 years and after it had to go in for two overly expensive services, I packed it away in disgust.

    Fast forward to 2019 and my watch collection is limited to beater watches (except the Breitling of course)


    • Breitling Colt Chronograph Ė A73380
    • Seiko Sea Urchin Ė SNZF17
    • Seiko SSC031
    • G-Shock Mudmaster


    As much as I love the Breitling still, my style has completely moved in a different direction. Iím not looking to invest in multiple mid to high end watches so I have decided that if I am to replace the Breitling, I would probably get an Oris Aquis and call it a day. Beautiful, more than decent every day watch.

    I think I can only get about $1300 for the Breitling. The Oris if purchased grey can be had for about that amount.

    So, would you do it?

    Yes - your head n heart is no longer with the Breitling - its had a good run for its money - let someone else have and enjoy n you flip to get what you fancy

    Yes.
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    I love my Aquis. I have tried on many Breitlings at the store and they all felt wrong. The moment I put the Oris on I knew.

    Definitely yes, especially since you donít wear the Breitling any more.

    Hhmmmm. Iíve been there with my Breitling and thank the watch gods I didnít pull the trigger. Iíve even been so far into selling my Breitling as to have staged photos for eBay. In the end, I packed it away, wore some of my other watches, and found how much I love the Breitling again. Distance makes the heart grow fonder they say. Now it is on my weekend rotation. I just know if you loved it once you will love it again and have the regret of loss. Itís damn nice looking watch! You donít see many in that color scheme.

    Yes, absolutely. If you’re willing to buy used, you can even find them below $1,000 on the forum, so you’d have money to spare. Also, if you’re going to buy gray, you might as well go to an AD. I bought mine from an AD for less than the gray prices being offered. Aquis gray prices for whatever reason are not significantly less. I’d be surprised if your AD couldn’t match it or even give you a better price.

    Yes, without a moment's hesitation (and to Random, AD means "authorized dealer").
