In 1884, in the Jura mountains of Switzerland, Leon Breitling opens a workshop specializing in making chronographs and precision counters for scientific and industrial purposes. The rest, as they say, is history. A specialist of technical watches, Breitling has played a crucial role in the development of the wrist chronograph.
Altin Place carries a wide range of unworn, previously-owned, and vintage Breitling watches. Used Breitling watches can be a great investment and a great value, if you buy right. Condition, finish and age all play an important part. Each of the preowned Breitling watches that we sell must first go through an extensive authentication and quality control check, and before being polished to a factory new finish, each of our used Breitling watches has the movement cleaned, serviced and timing calibrated to C.O.S.C. standards. Each previously-owned Breitling sold by Altin Place also comes covered by a 2 year service warranty.
Vintage Breitling watches have been shooting up in value and collect-ability over the last several years. Rarity and changes in fashion trends have played a part in this, no doubt, but the real reason that these watches are gaining so much popularity is that most prominent wristwatch manufacturers of the 1930s to 1970s made men’s watches in sizes too small to be desirable to men looking for a vintage watch today.
So whether you’re looking for an unworn Breitling watch, a pre-owned Breitling watch or a vintage Breitling watch, you’ve come to the right place.
