Hello everybody,

I'm new to this forum and find myself here after a trip to Las Vegas. While there, I stumbled upon a jewelry store and fell in love with a Breitling Transocean Chrono with black croc tang strap. The ring around the face was in gold while the rest was not.

The dealer there offered me the watch for 8100 (9550 retail I believe) plus said no tax since they do not have a presence in California. I didn't buy as I research large purchases.

Since I've been back, I've done some research for used Breitlings and have come across Torneau and Bernard Watch. Which site do you suggest for used watches? Also, as long as I have the papers, box and receipt, am I good to go for warranty work (if needed)?

Also, what AD do you recommend for purchase of this watch new?

Thanks.

Here is an image of the watch.

I forgot to mention I've never had a watch more expensive than $200. Is there a FAQ post or blog you can recommend?

Thanks.

I think its a beautiful watch, there is a transocean with a gold bezel as well for 3k less that might suit your needs.
A great watch but you are jumping from $200 to $8k so just be sure.

Btw I have a breitling and All I can say is they are superb!

Congrats on your Transocean. It's my favourite $10 k watch.

COngrats on the watch. One of my favorites in Breitling lineup - impressive yet understated. Let's see some pics when you get it strapped up

Congrats! Saw one yesterday. SS on a black leather strap. Very nice watch. It was very reasonably sized and has a clean dial for a chrono.
