Up for sale is the first to go of my Breitling trio, my beloved Breitling Superocean Chronograph with black dial on Pro I bracelet. As stated in previous sales listings, I've completely changed careers and started a full-time doctorate program. With this change, I've had to make some sacrifices and unfortunately my watch collection is one of them. This Breitling SOC has been discontinued for some time and is getting very hard to find in good condition with the full set--even down to the hang tag and plastic bezel protector.
The watch is in overall excellent condition with light surface marks from careful wear with the exception of dings on the bottom of the 6 o'clock lugs which I've provided a picture of below. I don't believe the watch has ever been polished but could otherwise easily be lightly buffed back into like new condition. Considering the age of the watch, it really presents well. The Pro I bracelet also shows minimal stretch/wear and the clasp and diver's extension still lock nice and tight.
I also had it fully serviced in October 2018 from a local reputable watchmaker as it randomly stopped running. One part was replaced which I kept and will be included with the sale. With the service comes a two year warranty on it.
The watch comes with absolutely all boxes, papers, and accessories which includes: outer box, inner bakelite box, sleeve for the documents, chronometer certificate, warranty booklet, AD booklet, instruction booklet, hang tag, bezel protector, all extra links, and service receipt.
I am looking to get $2,000 > $1,900 which includes paypal fees and shipping via USPS Priority mail within the US. Given the value of the item, I'd like to keep it local to the US/Canada. I have tons of references from years of buying, selling, trading, and otherwise fueling this hobby. Feel free to ask any questions and I should be able to get back in a reasonable time since I recently finished finals (woohoo!) and finally have some spare time.
