    Breitling

    Visited the boutique in the trafford centre to pick up my strap.
    They really know their onions there.
    This monster was off sc a few weeks ago but came on a canvas strap which is strange for a diver.
    Anyway bought as a holiday watch.
    (Ambitious perhaps).
    Here's some pics.

    Very nice, my Volcano Black says Hi.




    For a while this was my only watch that i wore constantly so a selection of straps always helped.

    recently got a NATO for it as well

    I recently got this on the SS bracelet but the whole thing becomes to heavy. Have ordered the leather strap and buckle from Breitling which cost a reasonable 170 for both.

    What a beauty! These are real man watches heheh.

    My SteelFish is pretty much the same design. I love it... owned it since 2008.

    OP. That looks like a super summer watch. The iconic Breitling colour really looks good on that one.

    I am seriously thinking of picking one of these up again. Breitling in their heyday (pic from 2006). - there are some non-LE big dates available for pick up at very reasonable prices.

    I remember when you wrote a detailed review on it Martyn, funny enough I’m tempted to pick up a Breitling Blackbird big date Chronograph as they seem well priced these days....

    I think this is probably the best value 'luxury' dive watch out there:

    I have to agree except I would go for the 44 mm version with HEV and 1000m WR.
