    A good tip; I've never found that leather straps work well with Breitling sports - bracelet or rubber.

    Somebody's fascinated by the Navitimer :)

    I'm looking at the prospect of a Chrono-matic 44mm, a black '00s edition as per:

    https://www.breitlingsource.com/watc...itimer_81.html

    Any observations, reviews, watch-outs (no pun intended)? The ETA movement is presumably easily serviceable? Is the black ring around the bezel rubber, and if so does it degrade?

    38mm Navitimer. Take note Breitling, it doesn't need to be bigger than this.

    I picked this up in the watchfinder sale. Very happy with it. A bit smaller dia and much slimmer than watches I tend to wear, but i think the proportions are lovely.

    Im going to need a bigger box. Mind you, this Transocean probably represents my last watch purchase for a good long time.

    My first Bret 38mm Colt Quartz I love it! Perfect size for my chicken wrist!

    I went for the all factory brushed steel Fighters edition, it just tones the Navitimer down enough for me the wear it on the bracelet.

    I'm delighted that everyone is enjoying the thread ressurection, but just a wee reminder that any info pros/cons etc on the chronomatic would be greatly appreciated!

    I looked at the silver dial variant and it wears much smaller that the dimensions suggest IMO. I didnít get it because I wanted a white dial watch at the time and the silver wasnít what I was after. Shame though as itís an utterly lovely watch and when Iím in the market for a Navitimer Iíll give this a look too. Not sure about the rubber bezel Iím afraid; maybe an e-mail to Breitling could help (Iíve always found them pretty helpful in the past)
