Hi All - pls advise
I have a watch that Ive had for 23yrs - a Breitling Superocean colt auto. It has a little sentimental value but not much inherent value as is - I haven't worn it for well over a decade, and it's in need of some TLC: new crown & sleeve, new Bezel ratchet, new crystal, new hands, full service. It was running well and keeping good time but when the Luminova on the hollow bayonet watch hands flaked and came off, it was left unloved.
I think this is gonna be at least £500. I think once serviced it could be worth north of £1000 - but ..... is it worth me doing this? or flipping it as it is? I wore it through the late 1990's and early 2000's but almost never after 2005 when I bought a larger, less shiny Breitling Avenger - now also long gone.
what would you do?
