    Thoughts on the Breguet type XX

    I’ve always been intrigued by the dial. I’m a dial guy.
    I’ve stayed away from chronos recently as I don’t really use the function but love the look. The Breguet is classy on top.

    My collection is a GO senator sixties green, a Triton dive watch, RGM diver 300, and I have a vintage DJ and Sinn 104 I’m looking to sell.

    I know they are COMPLETELY different watches...but if I were to sell the Dj and replace it with the Breguet am I gaining or losing in the collection?

    Thoughts on the Breguet at preowned prices and value?

    Thanks all!!

    I vote go for it get the Breguet. Its honestly for the price I think a hell of a watch with the history and overall look of the watch. Datejust are nice but the Breguet has a lot more style and character. I also think it would be nice to throw in a complication to your normal 3 handed collection.

    Thoughts on the Breguet type XX

    Vintage or modern? If modern, I'd prefer a Breitling 765 AVI/CP re-edition (on the right), which historically pre-dates the Bregeut Type 20 by several years. If vintage, then a vintage 765 (on the left).

    The type xx is a pretty good step up over the DJ in my opinion. It's an excellent value in the used market especially. And I think it would fit nicely into your collection even if you don't use the function much. The dial is beautiful in person.

    I decided to go with it. It seems like a good price on the preowned market and this one had a recent service so I feel good about using it. It’s from the 2000s. I like the DJ, it I still hesitate about a real vintage piece and trusting it. So I think, for me, it’ll be the better piece to own.

    I only want to have four watch’s plus maybe a “beater” so I’d like to sell one or two.

    Thanks for the input.

    I think it is a beautiful watch and the deals you get on used examples are amazing for such a watch.

    Congrats, I’m sure you will enjoy it. I’m pretty sure the Type XX’s from the early 2000s were still utilizing tritium... is the watch you are purchasing have tritium or Luminova? I regret not buying one many years ago that had begun to age very nicely and would have been an absolute steal compared to what they go for today.

    It’s just late enough to have Luminova. I agree the age tritium looks nice, but when I see the lume glow I like that just as much.
