If it was me I'd get the blue which dial do you prefer? Or fits in best with your collection

Both would fit in with the collection just lovely. And I like them both, the boss prefers the silver.

The other 5 consist of
2 black face
2 silver face
1 white face

A blue one would look good alongside that 5. And the Brietling blues aren't in your face blues which is good. Not sure about strap matches though as it will go onto leather. The silver will match any strap colour

Blue gets my vote - but then again, I like blue watches.

Bother the 'which strap' question. Get the blue one on Bracelet.

watching you fail in your quest for a “one watch” has been great entertainment

That's a terrific take on the GMT/World timer, Bernie - quite a rival for my own favourite from Tissot (equally rare and expensive!)

:lol: Unfortunately no Steve . I think if you did get your hands on one , it would certainly be a lovely addition to your collection . Or would a gold VC manual wind come first ?
