Very nice. Looks big. (And expensive).

I do still prefer the old style Breitling wings on their logo though.

It’s only 40mm case so quite small in the breitling world and yes the old style wings were better

Strangely enough, my 18 year old Breitling SuperOcean would now cost me between two and three times its initial cost (new) to replace - tbf, I bought it in Jersey tax-free (but from a U.K. chain of jewellers to ensure any problems would be resolved).

SuperOcean is a stunning watch , all of them seem to nosedive in terms of value and then level off and in the case of the SuperOcean and a few other models regain.

The Enduranxe Pro is available at 1yr old, full set, remaining warranty at £1450 ish so that’s a drop of 50%

Still not as bad as TAG though 😂


The Citizen Super Titanium BY1018-80E Tsuki-yomi Is next on the list and I need to get it fairly quickly as it’s selling out

Well, I don’t ‘need’ to get it

Actually, I do brb

I have a titanium Citizen, easily the most reliable and accurate watch I have. It must be nearly 20 years old now and still holds charge that lasts for months on end. Weighs next to nothing too.

Citizen make some great watches I had a titanium eco drive until it was nicked by Turkish customs about five years ago. they use Citizen movements in the new TAG Heuer solargraphs.

There’s a stunning Citizen with a blue paper dial that was only released to the Japanese market, they’re fairly rare over here and priced accordingly > £2.5k before import duties

I would have asked for the link for that but then seen it's 44mm. Way too big for me. Gutted, looks really nice too.

Typically I've found something I'm considering but won't be buying till I try it on due to the size (40mm). It's the Hamilton Intra-Matic Chrono Panda. But just my luck after ringing around the shops in my town they don't have them in stock. So, not sure what to do about it at the mo.
