Watches Live: Rolex, Omega, Breitling: The Big Three Of Luxury Watches

Tim Mosso joins the online luxury watch community for a deep dive into several of Watchbox’s best pre-owned Swiss luxury watch inventory from Rolex, Omega, and Breitling. We’re holding court with live questions about luxury watches and giving away free watch related SWAG. Tonight, we’re sharing and discussing a cross-section of the best luxury watches from the “Big Three” of Swiss watches. Rolex arrives with the Rolex Submariner in “Hulk” guise, the recently discontinued and hugely collectible Sea-Dweller 116600, and the Brobdingnagian Deepsea Sea-Dweller 116660. Rolex history and heritage comes to the fore with the transitional Rolex GMT-Master II 16760 “Fat Lady,” the first Rolex GMT-Master with a truly independent dual-time function. A much-discussed Rolex on our channel for several weeks, the Rolex Explorer II 216570 “Polar” dial makes an appearance. Breitling arrives with a combination of value and innovation. The Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronoworks, a $39,000+ technical tour-de-force, leads the line. Value comes in the form of Breitling’s classic Navitimer pilot’s watch and the Superocean Steelfish diver. History gets a nod thanks to the Breitling Chono-matic, and the huge “Breitlight” Avenger Hurricane makes its 50mm presence felt. Finally, Omega, 170 years-old this year, musters several of its signature watch families. The Speedmaster CK2998 represents Switzerland’s first family of chronographs; a Seamaster Skeleton from the Omega Seamaster’s 50th anniversary graces us with its presence this year, the 70th anniversary of the original model. Omega’s PloProf Seamastrer 1200 dominates the stage with its 55mm x 48mm titanium case. Finally, an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Annual Calendar reminds us that Omega’s surf/turf watch can bring the complications; in truth, the Aqua Terra is the closest Seamaster in style and spirit to the 1948 original model. This is Watches Live, episode 10.

If the big Blue was blue with bright green highlights instead of orange I’d be selling organs to buy one

Gizmo TheWestie says:

I love the black/yellow strap on the Breitling. I want one of those for my Breitling Avenger ll.

jumboJetPilot says:

I want that Omega Big Blue!

Sicario_Camisado says:

Best watch content on YouTube. Excellent content Tim!

Watch lover in Hawaii says:

I enjoyed the affordable to non affordable watches you had on.

Joseph C. Cheng says:

I finally understood what you meant by “eventually you find the one you love” when I saw your review of the Datejust penguin dial. Great video and great watches tonight. You were quite ebullient.
BTW, Go Big Green!

Venus Dee says:

Many websites and other media always throw Tag Heuer in the mix. I think they deserve a spot there. People sometimes say it is not equal to the other 3 but non of those 3 are equal to each other. Rolex is surely on top and I cant say with 100% but believe most put Omega over Breitling and then Tag last. But still Tag is there.

andrewst12 says:

That blue PO is kinda silly and mad, I laughed when I saw it

Titi teatea says:

Great review Tim!

Falseflagz 67 says:

great video!!! thanks for posting this..very informative

tons834848 says:

Tim, did you turn all the dive-bezels away from 12 just to annoy me? – Well you did more than that; you made me INSAAANE!
Otherwise excellent content/presentation.

TopSecretVid says:

Me want a Hulk

Oe Elkhateeb says:

Tim, there’s something with the voice quality this time. I dunno it sounds muffled or distant. Certainly not as good as it sounds in your watch reviews.

Peter Olsson says:

Fanastic content. Tim rocks.

Bubba B says:

Speed dating live with sexy time pieces with your host Tim Mosso. Nice watch variety and narrative tonight Tim. Sports are for Claudio, watches are for Tim. Lol!Priceless. Copacabana? Do you have a turn table on the shelf with Barry Manilow queued up? Best…

C Miller says:

Woa it’s Tim’s face! This is amazing.

scott satren says:

Hey Tim, you know far too much for only 34 but I love it, you tack driver! Thank you.

Andy Garton says:

Great video, but please make sure the focus is on Tim, and not the background books, next time!

steven uk1 says:

great format & content.. and some very good watches.

jumboJetPilot says:

You have a Seamaster Professional! So do I. Except mine has the steel bezel. I love it! And I also have a tie to James Bond. My uncle was the sound producer from Dr. No through Octopussy. He was very close personal friends with Sean Connery.

treehouse722 says:

High quality content as usual. Excellent video.

ripperx444 says:

I had the Hulk. It was very nice but i sold it. I picked up and omega planet ocean 8900 movement and I just can’t go back to Rolex. Omega is great value for money especially discounted… also let me ask this. So omega changed the case back on the planet ocean mainly because it wanted to center the verbiage ?

Mike M says:

Tim you’re awesome and your vocabulary astounds me.
Great show!!

highnrising says:

Tim–
Great show, as usual. I’m amazed that you–and every other reviewer, like blog-to-watch et al–have completely missed an unusual feature of the Omega Trilogy 1957 SM 300 Diver. Omega also fails to mention it in their description of the watch on their website:
The watch has a count-DOWN bezel instead of the standard count-UP. I’ve never seen that on a dive watch–except you once mentioned that there’s a small custom watch maker in Italy or Spain that offers that as an option. I’d think it’s worth discussing in a review of the watch.
