For sale is a very rare vintage Breitling/Sicura Automatic Men’s Date Watch in excellent fully working condition.

From the stunning golden dial, to the beautifully timeless casing, this watch is a masterpiece. An excellent watch that is suitable for any occasion.

Coming by a vintage circa 37-year-old watch of this calibre is a once in a life-time opportunity to say the least.

In 1979, Breitling was purchased by Sicura to keep its heritage, excellent build quality and design strong and flowing, making Breitling what it is today, without it, Breitling would be no more – This Sicura being from after the purchase of Breitling.

It is keeping time and working as it should, ready to be worn and enjoyed.

- Vintage, Genuine Breitling/Sicura Automatic Men’s Date Watch (serial 9329, branded Sicura)

I have described the watch to the best of my ability, feel free to either ask me a question or refer to the internet/photos for more accurate information.

The watch is under warranty for approx six months with a well trusted collector that I have purchased a number of watches from over time. No warranty or guarantee of any sort is provided by me, it is an "as is" sale due to the fact that the watch is vintage.

I am reducing my collection and this watch is now surplus to requirements.

Questions and answers

How old is this watch? Auto or battery? b***0 (0 0 positive feedback) 5:50 pm, Tue 14 Mar
Good evening, it is circa 37 years old - becoming more sought after as time goes by. It has its original 17 jewel automatic movement (it isn't battery powered). Thanks, Barney 5:55 pm, Tue 14 Mar
Why are you calling this a Breitling when it clearly isn't? Ernst Schneider, owner of Sicura bought Breitling: they were two different brands. Why don't you post a photo of the movement? I bet it is a humble (and cheap) Rondamatic. c*****2 (106 106 positive feedback) 3:20 pm, Wed 15 Mar
Seller Comment: Hi "Cheval", Thanks for the extra information - Have added to the listing. As per the listing, this Sicura is built after the purchase of Breitling. I am a watch appreciator not tinkerer, so leave the servicing of watches to specialized jewellers. Thanks and have a nice afternoon, Regards, Barney 3:42 pm, Wed 15 Mar

Thanks, it is a stunning watch. Regards, Barney 2:13 pm, Fri 17 Mar
Hi-does auto movement require servicing or is it low maintenance.My tag heuer caf 1010 playing up probably cheaper to buy your one than repair.can you do paynow via credit card? a*********y (261 261 positive feedback) 10:46 pm, Mon 20 Mar
Hi, it is a very low maintenance non-fussy, reliable automatic movement, servicable by all capable jewellers (unlike many Tag Heuers). It has been given a routine service for buyer peace of mind - In perfect working order. It has one of the best automatic power reserves I have ever seen (lasts for days and days). Newer watches aren't built to the same standard as watches like this example (hence why the only watches in my collection are vintage). Have never used PayNow, will look into it.
