    Is there anything worrisome about a used watch with this paperwork?

    Is it factory certified pre-owned paperwork?

    Either way you would think it would have a date.

    If it is official you may be able to go to an AD and have them fill in the date all legal like.

    I wouldn't be as worried if all the reference and serial numbers on the watch match the paperwork. It would be nice if the seller could send a copy of the purchase invoice to determine how many years / months, if any are remaining on the warranty.

    If it has a Tax Invoice that clearly identifies this particular Watch, and has a date on the Tax Invoice, then I would be okay with that.

    It may have been originally purchased from a grey market dealer with no factory warranty. You have the paper but no signature or date. If so the dealer may have included their own. Ask the seller.

    Breitling may have the original Chronometer certificate.

    Seller is a jeweler with great reviews, reputation and large following. He said he took it from one of his loyal customers as a trade-in for a more expensive watch... no further information was given.

    He sent me pictures and video, looks very legit...

    So by that it means you bought a used watch. The original owner bought it Grey Market without factory warranty. Is the dealer you bought it from including their own warranty? Good luck with it and enjoy.

    He took it from one of his loyal customers as a trade in, meaning he is not the Authorized Dealer that originally sold the watch. Unfilled warrantry cards/paperwork usually means no manufacturer's warranty and was likely a grey market watch.

    I would hazard a guess that the original seller was grey as both the date and seller’s details are blank.

    Ok, you apparently have an unwarranted used watch of which there are others to compare it with. What condition is it in and how old? If it has a bracelet are all the links with the watch? You may want to check the price of other comparable watches for sale.

    If the chronograph is over 5 years old it is probably up for a service that could run $500 +.
