This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Thought I’d post this as it’s an extremely good deal on a new colt. An entry level watch for the brand but an extremely well made watch, a certified, robust chronometer watch. It’s the cheapest deal to be had, RRP is close to £2500, google will tell you.
Warranty - I know a lot of people will say it’s not from an AD, you won’t get a warranty, I in fact queried this yesterday afternoon with Chronext. I spoke to a gentleman for about half an hour all things watches, how coronavirus is affecting them, this and that. He assured me that every brand new watch they sell will have a stamped manufacturer AD warranty card for whatever brand. I hope that puts that argument to bed.

I almost bought this myself but decided against it as I have my head set on Adding a Nomos to my collection a fantastic understated brand . There are a number of colts on offer, ranging from £1690-1890 brand new and on leather, bracelet and rubber deployants. Hopefully you guys like this one

I will list these here as I see no point in flooding the site with deals from the same vendor:

Rubber strap with deployant clasp - chronext.co.uk/bre…691

44mm on steel band -
chronext.co.uk/bre…647

41mm grey face on leather
chronext.co.uk/bre…687

Im sharing all of these so they get bought and it’s not me that ends up buying one! - Truth!

Cool!! Voted hot!
Breitling warranty cards aren't stamped. They are electronic and contain a chip programmed with the watch serial number, COSC cert number, purchase date and AD details, which are displayed on a screen.

I don't understand how a non-AD company can supply an AD card for a Breitling.

Grey market sellers buy pretty much all of their stock from ADs. Often ADs don’t know what stock they have coming in, the brand will simply send them watches to sell. When the new stock comes in the ADs have to advertise that, they will sell just above cost to a grey market dealer.

Purchase date & AD details have to be added, not by the manufacturer.
They are probably missing making the warranty void.

They’re not, the dealers buy these watches from ADs, all warranties are intact with the manufacturer.

What is AD???
Good deal, but not a fan of Breitling.
Finishing is not great, too many sharp angles.
I was too scared to wear my Avenger II near my car, just in case the bezel points came in contact with the paintwork.
Excellent find, thanks for posting 🔥🔥

Which is what I wondered.

A grey market dealer buys from an AD who has to update the warranty card with the sale date - the date the grey market dealer buys it, NOT the date the end customer buys it. The grey market dealer sits on the watch for x amount of time whilst the warranty is expiring. I'd be amazed if Breitling honoured the warranty for these.

I had a Swiss watch purchased from a UK grey market dealer (it wasn't Breitling) and when I took to an actual AD for a warranty repair the manufacturer would not touch the watch because it wasn't purchased *by me* from an AD

Yeah the warranty is stamped or electronically tagged from the date the grey market dealer buys it.
since warranties don’t have names on I find that extremely strange that if you took your watch for repair they’d question where you bought it? Completely crazy in fact, they wouldn’t have a clue who you bought it from. How would they know? More to the question if it’s under warranty it’s under warranty, very weird seen as the warranty card just states date of purchase and AD it was bought from. Should have taken it direct to the manufacturer whoever that was.

As long as it’s in date and the serials aren’t on a police database that’s all they usually look for. If it’s the first time you’ve taken it in they’ll Usually ask you to register your watch with them.

Easy, they buy it from an AD who had registered the watch. The thing you have to check on these none AD dealers, is when that card was activated. They might have bought it 4 months ago, so you will be missing 4 months of warranty. So best to check before ordering.

I had to look at the paperwork because it was a few years ago now. It was refused by the manufacturer because the grey market seller was the one who stamped the warranty card.

Damn that sucks, seriously shoddy practice as well. Hopefully it all got sorted in the end though.
Firstly I own a Breitling, so please don't flame me, this is a good deal. However since I bought mine with inheritance money I have found out that they use standard ETA movements, slightly modified, or the Valjoux 7750. None of them will hold their value, mine hasn't. So I now wear a Steinhart, it costs less, and still uses an ETA movement.

No flame at all mate, congrats on the Breitling and the steinhart I think at this price point those not many would consider it an “investment” and I use that term loosely when talking watches.

It was a bit frustrating, but my own fault for not checking whether the seller I bought it from was an AD.
