    This seems a good deal, what's the catch.

    Particularly on the bracelet and includes all taxes

    I guess only watchfinder know what money they have tied up in the watch. With them holding a lot of stock it’s maybe worth taking a small profit or even loss if it helps balance the books a little. Think a few good deals seem to be cropping up if you know what to look for.

    I think thats a bargain with the bracelet. The bracelet alone cost would have cost over £2k from breguet. That style of bracelet is no longer available and the replacement doesnt look as good in my opinion.

    Why is the 'Breguet' text to the left of centre?

    Looks rather odd.

    It usually has the serial number to the right but they've blurred that out

    As others have observed I think it’s become slightly more of a buyers market for some pieces. I would wager you could get 5-10% further off that asking price if you asked nicely.

    It’s an acquired taste and not a mainstream watch.
    I doubt the market for such a watch is huge. I certainly would not pay 7k for it, regardless of horological interest.
    You have to look at it…

    No, they're included.

    Watches purchased from our overseas stores, such as this one, may vary in price to identical models stocked in this country. This is due to shipping and/or import taxes, which are included in the price displayed here.

    beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think it's a nice looking watch but equally not one that I would choose the wear, at bit too classical looking.

    Steady on guys....
    It's a cracking watch, but not best suited to a bracelet IMO .

    Is it not a rubber strap?

    Just zoomed in and you’re not wrong…… doh.

    I still like it more than the bracelet.

    I agree, bracelet doesn't suit it, at least that one doesn't.

    Wow, typing guilloché into YouTube was a wonderful experience !

    One without the bracelet went for £4.4k (5k after fees) on watchcollecting a while back so I'd say this is priced to market.
    I am hoping for another to come up in blue though I suspect that'll go for a fair bit more.

    Very much under appreciated imo.
