Ultimate Breitling Time Capsule - 58 Breitling Wristwatches and Pocket Timers!!

After the death of Willy Breitling in 1979 his family closed the factory doors, liquidated the machines, factory fixtures, and spare parts. They vaulted the remaining finished watches and more or less forgot about them. After many years, they resurfaced when a vintage watch dealer from Zurich, Joseph Iten, acquired the remaining inventory of wristwatches, pocket timers as well as some very rare prototypes. We became aware of this collection of pristine watches after the untimely death of Mr. Iten and purchased what were remaining which included 3600 wristwatches and 1200 pocket timers. We sold these to collectors worldwide until about 2 years ago. What you will find in this listing is a collection of what remains including watches that we have never offered for sale. This collection has been in our possession for the last 16 years stored safely and kept in original condition. Most have the factory label listing retail prices from the 1970's. We are ready to pass the legacy of Willy Breitling to the next fortunate collector. This collection is suited for a museum or advanced private collector.

Included in this listing are 23 wristwatches and 35 chronograph pocket timers as well as a Richter Breitling book, rare Breitling factory display, and Breitling timer board.
Each item in this listing is in new old stock condition.
The wristwatches have been fitted with non-Breitling straps recently and are included.
All wristwatches and pocket timers are running, keeping time, and have never been serviced.
The photographs in this listing are photos of the actual wristwatches and pocket timers.
Below are specific photos and descriptions for each of the wristwatches and pocket timers which include prototypes and rare variants.
Payment must be made by guaranteed bank funds.

Only $125,000. Hmmm, I will think about it. Geesh. Ollech and Wajs had some old inventory too and the people who got it at 2-350 think they should be able to make a 100% profit. I don't get it, get a great deal, sell for a seat on the next space shuttle.

Also, you can make an offer! Any offer i could make would be a waste of bandwidth; however, there are a couple of folks here who might be able to pool resources and make a run at it. Is a shame those aren't all wristwatches.

58 NOS watches for 125,000.
All probably need some service or at least a looking over. Could get expensive for this "deal"
You might have to work to make a profit.

Max value should be 60,000, in reality will be even less.

Selling off the wristwatches in individual auctions would garner a decent amount.

The stopwatches are another story. I am thinking that's a fairly narrow hobby, collecting high dollar stopwatches?

At $125K that's $2156 each. Figure another grand each for overhaul and you are at about $3200 each.

Serious Breitling enthusiasts are out there and most wouldn't hesitate to spend $3K on a wristwatch such as those offered.

Finding one buyer to fork over the $125K though is a longer shot for sure.

Most of those Breitlings are not great watches, and represent the dark days of cost cutting and Sicura. They are not $2k watches.

Maybe so, but many of them make my dick hard indeed.

Yup. A few years ago there were ads in Watchtime and other mags from a company offering many of these for a song.
