Are Breitling watches overpriced?
As with all products, value is in the eye of the buyer. Many people find that Breitling’s watches (and watches by other fine manufacturers) are well worth the price. Different people purchase watches for different reasons, and Breitling has models for all of them; from pure tool watches such as the Aerospace, SuperOcean Professional and Chronomat Blackbird to jewelry watches such as the Callisto. The Navitimer with its classic, some say romantic, looks and utilitarian slide rule bezel lands somewhere in between. A $20 plastic quartz watch keeps better time than most fine mechanical watches, but anyone comparing the two is missing the point entirely.
