Breitling Colt Superocean Ref. A17040 Mens Diver Automatic Stainless Steel Watch - Booklets


Item No. 8711

Today's offering showcases this Certified Pre-Owned Breitling SuperOcean with its original booklets in gorgeous condition.

Breitling's Colt SuperOcean was originally operational at a depth of 1000M. It has powerful, and sophisticated lines and a sturdy 43mm case including the crown guards. It features a rotating elapsed time bezel with rider tabs done in the classic Breitling style.

The watch possesses excellent legibility thanks to its black dial with large luminous numbers, oversized luminous hands and sapphire crystal.

Powering the watch is its precise and reliable Breitling Caliber 17 engine, making the watch's functional capabilities as robust as its style.

We were fortunate to acquire our Colt SuperOcean in gorgeous condition - on the wrist it presents as a 9.6 out of 10. The bracelet shows moderate stretch - otherwise the watch presents as mint.

The case presents as mint. So does the dial, and the crystal is scratch-free.

A Master Watchmaker has overhauled the watch. It is keeping very accurate time.

Accompanying the watch are its original booklets.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

Retail price for the newest version: $5,250.00 USD + tax.

According to Breitling, since 1957 the SuperOcean has earned a solid reputation in the field of diver's watches. As a true seagoing instrument with helium escape value the SuperOcean was originally water-resistant to 1000 meters (3300 feet).
