What's with reviving ancient threads lately... but while we're at it I'll post mine. I've dreamed of this watch since I first saw it in 1996 (I'm an aerobatics freak and some of my favourite airplanes were sponsored by Breitling, I looked them up and I saw the Aerospace...). I've never been passionate about watches but I am about this one. I've had it for 6 months now and it still feels like a good investment (which almost never happens, my car, laptop, camera and TV are the only other gadgets I have that I haven't regretted, everything else I regret almost as soon as I leave the store - I owned 2 PSP's for about a week each, just didn't make sense to have one). It's also the only watch I've ever worn so consistently. I wear it every day. It's titanium so it's so light that I don't feel it on my hand, so I can wear it in the gym doing cardio etc and it doesn't get in the way. The clasp is spring loaded so it never feels too loose or chaffing my wrist. It also has only lost ONE second of time in the 6 months I've owned it (I synced it to the US atomic clock when I got it, and again a week ago), which is unheard of in a wristwatch.

Though slowered beat me to it so my comment is no longer original, I too tell time by the sun.


Seriously though havent worn a watch since I was in grade 6 or 7. So about 8-10 years. I have my cellphone everywhere I go, whats the point of a watch. Plus I have a personal pet peeve with watch-tans.

1 you can tell a lot about a person by the watch he/she wears.
2 also a watch makes the man.
3 no watch = no personality

anyone agree or at least believe these sayings?
