My First Incoming of 2012

Post by ianblyth »

Some watch had to be first and this is it. I have been watching out for a nice black dialled Breitling when this came up. At first I hesitated as I already have the silver GMT version but after the price was dropped I could not help it. :lol:

While the bracelet was in the ultrasonic for a clean I tried it on this CWL alligator.

Some stats

Movement: Breitling 32 aka ETA 2893-2
Power Reserve: 42 Hours
Water Resistance: 500m
Diameter: 40.5mm
Thickness: 13.6mm
Weight: 85.1g
Lug Width: 20mm

It is the first Breitling I have had with the Fighter bracelet. It is quite nice.

I am not sure why I have so many GMT watches when I don't really use them. :problem: Superb watch though.

Yep - I'm a fan! I've toyed with buying the silver-faced one in the past, but I just couldn't afford it. Great, solid watches. :thumbup:

Congratulations Ian. a great way to start the year. I do like their bracelets as well.... very comfortable.

One thing to check....the pressure pin on the safety clasp (6 side)...they have a tendency to loosen. Check to be sure it is pressed in tight.
