Same as Breitling they use ETA standard movements on their watches, Omega seems to modify existing ETA's and call it their own movement

Grand Seiko is considered to be one of the best watches available. Their movements are incredible and their level of fit and finish puts Omega and Breitling to shame.

For the long-term resale value, Omega will hold its value as to Breitling as Omega has release their "own" movement.

As far as servicing, Breitling will be cheaper to service as it uses standard ETA (which is pretty smart) but unfortunately, you have to cough up the dough and the resale value is horrible on the Breitlings compared to Omega

You can often pick up Breitlings for 50% off sticker though

I picked this up last month as a gift to myself. I had intended on getting a Rolex Explorer II or one of several different Breitlings. I wasn't impressed with the others after trying this one on and still couldn't be happier with my choice.

^ What made that Omega more impressive than the Rolex or the various Breitlings that you tried?

It fit the best and seemed to fit my personality. It was also 46mm and still didn't seem overwhelming like the larger Breitlings. The others just didn't feel right to me. Perhaps as I get a little more "mature" I will pick up a Rolex but for now at the age of 44 this Omega is in it's season. Hope that helps.

Damn, not in Canada though. I even inquired at Ben Bridge and they won't discount their Breitling Superocean Heritage's stating that "they sell well"

Love the Planet Ocean's but even the new 42mm with 8500 movement I find it is too big and tall for my wrist.

I have boney girl arms and a 42 is not too big. I have a few 45-46 and those start to be. My rolex in 40 seems small.

Omega Seamaster is always a classic. Congrats on a nice purchase.

well between the two my vote goes to Omega

you can pay retail for the Breilting then sell it for 1/3 of that when you get tired of it... and if you must get a Breilting, go for the Bentley.

Lol at 50% discount on breitlings. Unless its a Patek, or a very limited Panerai all watches will lose value. Both omega and breitling lose value but not 50%! Watch recon is a great place to find used watches, but you need to be careful with gray market purchases. Both omega and breitling are amazing watches, and they both now have in house movements, so please don't compare to tag or seiko or tissot. Those brands are no where near omega and breitling. At the end of the day, get the one that u like better.

Do a search online (mostly grey market) or find a Tourneau Outlet store nearby. For example, the closest one to me is in San Marcos (between San Antonio and Austin) and they contact me every time they receive a new batch. I picked up a Bentley 6.75 for $4,500

Breitling Bentley is the heavily discounted line. Navitimers are least discounted.

If you want to look at used watches, the best place is Timezone.com I bought and sold several pieces there.
