So any thought on this one @Jim Dollares @Aquagraph
Well, overall I like it. But the hour hand is strange and the strap is awful. Put this on one of those cool Breitling rubber straps and it would be pretty cool. But the hour hand is still funkier than a three week old cheese sandwich.
Not sure I could bring myself to spend £5600 on that Breitling!
Well I am not a fan of the design personally. But what I can confirm to you is that Breitling is a superb brand. Well built quality pieces. If you like the design, no reason to not buy it.
The whole discussion about some brands being "over priced"... All luxury brands are overpriced. Their margins are insane and they make a shit load of money. Does that mean we shouldn't buy their products? No, if you dream about a specific watch. Obsessing, your heart aches to get it. Then you should get it, no matter the brand.
This is a very good point. Don't buy any watch unless you absolutely love it, have to have it, and feel that it's the one for you! Otherwise, you will end up regretting/flipping, or having your head turned by something else, I guarantee it.
Absolutely. They are ALL over priced, it's all about levels of exclusivity.
All good advice again, cheers everyone.
Hour hand does look a little odd, I agree @Aquagraph. Would prefer a rubber strap too.
I have seen it reduced by about 22% @imagwai, so that’s more in my ball park.
I started out looking at more classic designs in brushed steel or Ti and now find myself veering towards more modern, often black cased varieties.
Not yet had a shop visit, so not bought the first, but already thinking there’s more than one needed…n+1…
EDIT: I absolutely will not be buying something discounted, just for the sake of it btw. I would rather pay full price than do that. Do like the challenge of combining both though, the one I want but at a discount.
Don't let these people bully you into buying a Retro diver mate, they're sneaky this lot, they got to Dollares and now look at him with his BB58, they should all be ashamed!
Don’t get me wrong, I do like the BB58, but prefer the BB Ceramic. That kind of explains my current desire, style wise.
Oh, okay then.... too late
I'm thinking I might get a canvas printed...
Just think, if Alec Monopoly had done that it would be worth thousands!
I watched a video today and Tim Mosso said 'This one will stand the test of time once all the green fads have passed', and to think I thought he knew his onions!
And you can pair it with one where you take a Black Bay and write 'yes yes yes yes' in more happier colours all over it
The major question though, what does Archie think of the pistachio masterpiece from Breitling?
Yeah this chunky piece of pseudo 50s retro will be all the rage in 2040.
Now this is a sexy Breitling!
It is, I think it’s pretty close to the pan am they also have. The difference with this just appears to be a white tachy scale.
I like this Breitling quite a bit.
At some point I feel that this will be the quartz watch in my collection
