Breguet vintage diving watch. Now that's one which I would well see as a limited edition for us!

Look at this one: 















Credit pictures: Jatuka? 

Now... Remove the date ( here not a deal breaker, I must confess, but better without, in my opinion ), keep a domed plexy, change the movement for a good modern one from Breguet, 

40 mm case. Screw-in crown. Screw-in case back. 

And here we are! 

What do you think? 

Best,

Nicolas

Love your thinking, Nico!

Let’s lobby Breguet to create this dream and turn it into a reality!

With or without date?

 
 By: amanico : December 3rd, 2022-23:29

No date is a given

 
 By: Arronax : December 4th, 2022-01:19
Lume color however is a more difficult decision

39mm no date would be nice

Beauty. I vote no date!

Screw in crown would be a must. Closed case back would make sense. I know this is a tool watch, but since it is a breguet… maybe an option for sapphire back to look at the movement?

Wow, nice lume markers on this piece

Wish they released it again. It will be a force to reckon with.

Definitely, my friend.

No date indeed...

 
 By: bruckner4 : December 4th, 2022-02:30
but perhaps just under 40 mm. 38 or 39?

8 for the No Date. And well, maybe it is the Unimatic which got its inspiration from this Breguet? :)))

The FF went the same way, a bit.... Rolex and Tudor, too. And Rolex and Blancpain were pioneers on that matter.... ...  

Yes! I'm in.

Sell me this, Breguet. Please!

No date. Beaucoup mieux?

...  

Yes! No date for me. But… the charm is in the rich

Creamy patina. That will be though to replicate.

Oooh yes, me too!

 
 By: amanico : December 4th, 2022-09:59

No date…. Less is more

Need to think about that,

Thanks for sharing the photos and the idea!

This is a beauty

I d love to have one. No-date would be perfecto!

12, now! Thanks, Alberti.

Great one!

 
 By: jlc.thomsen : December 4th, 2022-11:01
No date for me. But I’m in even if we end up having a date there for historical reasons.

Cool. Something serious cooking?

 
 By: jlc.thomsen : December 4th, 2022-15:02

No-Date & i’m in…

 
 By: mahesh : December 4th, 2022-12:06

Could be a surprise gift in Christmas🎉

 
 By: saintseiyaikki : December 4th, 2022-12:10
But could i have the limited(?) Type XX similar to the 'Only watch 2019' first🎊

Count me in, minus date.

 
 By: mrds : December 4th, 2022-15:32
Could this be my first Breguet? I love these pancake-sized hour markers! I am wondering about the hands though, as these are so typical Rolex. Was this the only type of hands used on Breguet divers? I could see some Type XX style hands work well for this ... 

+1

No date… thanks 😉

 
 By: darrony : December 5th, 2022-03:45
Maybe a more modern bezel material?

I'm in!😊

 
 By: radone : December 5th, 2022-06:14
Also without date

20, now. Thanks, Radu.

 
 By: amanico : December 5th, 2022-08:38

No date for me as well Nicolas!

 
 By: p-m-k : December 5th, 2022-07:20
I would add a sapphire case back. And skeletonized rotor to appreciate the movement. A WPS edition?!

No date amicu :D

 
 By: Joker2a : December 5th, 2022-08:00

22. Merci, amicu.

I’m in. John-E-Mac’s no date rendition of the photo looks fantastic!

 
 By: Andy_Mac : December 14th, 2022-08:15
No date get’s my vote 👌

Fully agree

 
 By: Blue and White : December 16th, 2022-20:48
Plexiglas, 40mm…fully agree and yes, Breguet should make a re-issue of this watch. No date preferred (but I would still like it a lot even with date). Thank you for showing this watch, I was not aware Breguet made such nice pieces.
