It’s Wednesday and boy do we have an exciting line up of vintage watches for you. We have everything from cool vintage divers from Aqua-Lung to Bulova, as well as a handful of unusual Rolexes. Read on to see the full selection.

1940s Breitling ‘Pre-Premier’ Ref. 734

In The Shop: 1940s Breitling 'Pre-Premier' Ref. 734, 1960s Aqua-Lung 'Skin 666' Chronograph, And A 1984 Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 16760 In The Shop: 1940s Breitling ‘Pre-Premier’ Ref. 734, 1960s Aqua-Lung ‘Skin 666’ Chronograph, And A 1984 Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 16760 932 Breitling Lifestyle

There is something about vintage Breitling watches, and we just can’t get enough. This “Pre-Premier” reference 734 is no different. First introduced by Breitling way-back-when in 1939 with a black dial, the 734 boasts clean lines and a classic tool watch demeanor. This chronograph does not feature the word “Premier” on the dial like its younger sibling, but it is just as appealing. Lately it has become one of the more desirable vintage Breitlings on the market. You can read more about this watch here.

1960s Aqua-Lung ‘Skin 666’ Chronograph

In The Shop: 1940s Breitling 'Pre-Premier' Ref. 734, 1960s Aqua-Lung 'Skin 666' Chronograph, And A 1984 Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 16760 In The Shop: 1940s Breitling ‘Pre-Premier’ Ref. 734, 1960s Aqua-Lung ‘Skin 666’ Chronograph, And A 1984 Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 16760 945 Aqualung Lifestyle

It’s hard not to love a dive watch. There is something so rewarding about a classic tool watch, with its clean lines and rugged exterior. When the Aqua-Lung “Skin 666” was first released in 1962, it cost $100. Fast forward to today and this quintessential automatic dive watch is more expensive at $3,400, but it packs the same punch. It was built to withstand pressures up to 660 feet deep and has a rich black dial fitted into the stainless steel case. You can read more about it here.

1984 Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Fat Lady’ Ref. 16760

The GMT-Master is a classic watch that just keeps on giving. Here we have a GMT-Master II “Fat Lady” reference 16760 which got its unusual nickname from the fat stainless steel case that is much bigger than previous iterations. This later transitional reference also has the index surrounds that add something extra to the black dial. There are many reasons we love the GMT-Master II, including the Pepsi bezel and the comfortable Oyster bracelet. You can read the full listing here.
