meh.. there is some validity in that comment but not too much. i do have to admit that i've used it a few times.. not always correct.

i don't have any pics or any highend watches (all 3 are under 300usd each) but i'm aiming to buy a Breitling within a year.

Why a Breitling? Don't take it the wrong way, just curious. It seems they have become popular over the last couple years.

it's not the name, it's how it looks and feels. if the same watch were made by another firm i'd go with it. at that level most watches retain time very well so i guess it's just personal choice.

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.


I got the same Watch. But not as an everyday watch.
