Breitling Navitimer 01 Limited Edition

Retail Price $8,590.00

Ahh. Gabeweb, a man of good taste!
This is a wonderful watch. I had it on my wrist a few weeks ago. It only looks a little different from the old one, but the real improvement is in the movement. It has the same B01 in-house Breitling movement as my TransOcean. The work they have put into making it is really quite phenomenal.
LAAAV IT.

Breitling TransOcean Non-Chrono, the classic dress version of my Chronograph 

Looks awesome, feels awesome. Sadly very expensive at £4,300.

An ETA base with no complications and no display caseback on a strap for the same money as a Rolex datejust?

I think not.

GQ praise for the new Breitling TransOcean Chronograph.

Until you have actually been to the Baselworld watch fair, which takes place in Switzerland in March, it is hard to imagine its scale. It is enormous and the clout (and the cash) of the Swiss watch industry is truly impressive. The stands of the big players are like buildings and it is difficult to believe that after less than a fortnight they are packed away for another year.

One of the biggest hitters in Basel is Breitling and its stand is one of the most impressive, fronted with a vast aquarium containing a shoal of sea bream swimming several metres above your head. It is easy to see why this is one of the most respected and successful luxury watch brands to come out of Switzerland. And this year’s special launch, the Transocean chronograph, clearly shows Breitling is at the top of its game.

The brand has long been associated with the aircraft industry. It supplied on-board chronographs for both propeller and jet planes. Indeed, one of its ambassadors is jet-fanatic John Travolta, the proud owner of his own 1964 Boeing 707. Not to be outdone, Breitling is the sponsor of an aerobatic jet team and a restored Fifties Lockheed C-121C Super Constellation, arguably the most elegant turboprop passenger airliner ever. Unsurprisingly, a Breitling has long been the timepiece of choice for commercial pilots.

It is in this spirit of first-class travel that the brand has created the new Transocean Chronograph, a tribute to the original model that was launched back in 1958. The design is a contemporary take on its classically understated forebear, while its brand-new “engine”, the Caliber 01, is claimed to be the best movement in its category and entirely developed and produced in-house by Breitling.

The Transocean will initially be launched as a limited edition of 2,000 in steel and 200 in red gold. This could well be the best-looking model you’ll find on the horological runway this year.

Transocean chronograph in steel on steel, £6,210. Transocean chronograph in steel on leather, £5,820. Both by Breitling. breitling.com

No idea who the dude is, but a girl I follow reblogged this (i’m guessing because he is an attractive man), however, I am reblogging this because he evidently has good taste.
Upon his wrist is an IWC Pilot Chronograph.

At around £3800, it’s one of the cheaper IWCs on the market, but a nice one nonetheless.

Whoever he is. My watch is better. =P
