    Show your Breitling!

    Please share your Breitling Pics here. Watches you own, have owned, almost owned it doesn't matter. :-)

    I think they are Cracking watches, with cracking history. Most of us have owned one or two in our time, the colt GMT seems to be the one I keep coming back to seem to be without one. Here she is on the NY Subway yesterday, and the underground today.








    I regret most selling a SteelFish GMT with blue dial. I've never seen one since. Will find the photo.


    The Colt is just a stunner!

    On its Pro2 Bling Bling



    Aerospace Advantage. The back light makes all the difference!

    A lovely Pair.

    B1 and SteelFish which I always prefer in Ti. Both look the business on a Toshi!

    More to follow.


    Happy new year!

    Here's mine. It's a prototype! A real one though - not something with a dial knocked up in Mumbai.

    This Steelfish X-Plus arrived just before Christmas. It's my first Breitling. I've since been trying to decide whether it's too big and heavy for me. My opinion has been changing daily. Today is a 'no it's fine I'll keep it' day!

    That's a cracker mate. Looks like a Doxa. Maybe same designer?

    Currently Breitling-less, but there’s been a few in the past:

    I like the Superocean Pro - a watch that shows up everything that's wrong and insubstantial about today's "fashion" dive watches, whatever the manufacturer.

    No pic, I know what it looks like and hardly anyone else is interested so I never bothered to take one ;).
    ...but what do I know; I don't even like watches!

    Pity!!!!



    How about a stunning original Aerospace. Blue dial. Looks so vintage for an aggressively modern watch!

    The SteelFish 1 is a beautiful watch, the circular number markets almost winking to a submariner. Creamy dial and pro1 bracelet that has a diving extension.



    Or maybe a standard Superocean. On a pro1 strap.

    Steel Fish! On a stunning Toshi strap!
    Blue dial, which works soooo well.
    If Han Solo wore a watch!




    Or how about an aerospace chronometer?



    Or maybe you prefer a Grey Dial?

    Although there is another breitling thread elsewhere, loads of the pictures are missing.

    these are mine at the moment:



    B1
    Navitimer world
    Superocean Heritage
    Emergency Mission
    Avenger Chrono
    Steelfish
    Avenger Seawolf

    i would really like something with a breitling movement in it, especially the transocean unitime but alas, i will always be too poor!

    Dont' know about prototype. These are normal production pieces from the early 1980's. Here's mine and the catalog pic.

    This thread is but a lame attempt to be seen as an important part of the forum with a thread that runs for years.

    Lovely, I think if anything could tempt me out of my E75362 Aerospace it would be one of these.
