Like many have said, this is a brand that never really interested me much but having tried on my nephews I was impressed and looked at a few models. I was particularly impressed by the Super Ocean range but felt they were a bit expensive but when I came across the Aerospace I was hooked and I still am. I think it is a fabulous watch and really hard to resist when I go into the box each day, there is so much more to it than a simple quartz.
That Colt looks really good too. Enjoy looking.

I had an Aerospace for over 25 years and recently sold it for the same as I paid for it. Servicing is stupid money though.

I saw a guy I know on Saturday, wearing a new Navitimer. Looks very nice but 46mm and £6.3k RRP....a bit too big on diameter and price.

I’d prefer one of the slightly smaller vintage versions.

I know this probably sounds daft, but I’d take the Sinn 903 over the Breitling. The Sinn looks fantastically proportioned.

Doesn’t sound daft at all! There’s a backstory about the Sinn 903 — at some point way back when, Breitling licensed the Navitimer to Sinn. That’s why the design is so similar. The Sinn is neither a homage nor a rip-off; Sinn was the exclusive maker of the Navitimer for some period of time, from what I understand. I have never seen the Sinn 903 in the flesh, but I have seen very favorable commentary from people who have handled both Sinn and Breitling variants of the Navitimer.

I find myself browsing these on a regular basis.
