Chronomat to Navitimer: Breitling vintage watches make history
It is not for nothing that many Breitling vintage watches enjoy cult status: the renowned Swiss watch manufacturer presented the first Chronomat as early as 1941 — a wristwatch with a slide rule. The Navitimer, one of the most legendary pilot's watches in history, presented in 1952, is also equipped with such a slide rule. It has accompanied countless pilots over generations and has become an icon. In the historic Mercury project, the special Cosmonaute model even made it into space.

The vintage trend is becoming increasingly popular. In addition to nostalgia, the price aspect also plays a decisive role. You usually pay less for a Vintage Breitling watch than for a new one. If you invest in a rare collector's model, you can expect an increase in value. The more sought- after and rare a watch is, the higher its resale value. It is advantageous to have the original box and the papers of the initial purchase as it increases the value; however, this is not a criterion for exclusion in the case of vintage watches. Above all, every vintage watch (whether Breitling, Rolex or Omega) is distinguished by its eventful past and its unmistakable and authentic character.
When does a Breitling watch become "vintage"?
First and foremost, the age of a watch determines whether it falls into the "Vintage" category. While experts such as Robert-Jan Broer place this at around 20 years, some collectors do not admit the title "Vintage" to a timepiece until it is 40 years old. At CHRONEXT, we call every model vintage as long as it is 20 years or older.
