Thank you, Driver8, for your educational response.
I would just really like it if, as WatchFred says, Breitling were to be really, really open about it. For instance mentioning the collaboration with Concepto or the La Joux-Perret base in the descriptions, making these questions redundant, as well as avoiding misleading/confusing terms like manufacture and in-house.

I haven’t posted on here in a while as it’s been a crazy year, but I saw the new Breitling releases and was reminded of these forums and everyone here, I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe!

The new releases are absolutely fantastic, it’s great to see Breitling pull themselves out of the rut they have been in for so long, at this rate they might overcome Omega in five years, great job George’s, Fred, and the rest of the team!

Altair! Good to see you again my friend! Sadly it's even quieter here now than it was when you were last here. I'm still hanging in there though! :lol: I hope all is well with you?

Good to see you around Altair. I totally agree with you—if Breitling keeps running the ship tight like this they could give omega a run for their money. I still think there is a lot of the line that can be chopped and making watches that are 48-49mm is ridiculous IMO, but, for the first time in a very long time they seem to be heading in the right direction.

Great to see you keeping the torch alive Driver, you are a better man than me!

I am doing well, trying to keep a new business afloat, turns out opening a fine dining restaurant was not the best idea just before a global pandemic :?

Its really good to see these forums still there, I have no doubt with the direction Breitling is taking and all the right moves they are making under new leadership that the brand will take back its rightful place in the top tier of Swiss watchmakers, and I am sure these forums will be even more alive than they ever have been.

Again, really good of you to keep faith and stick around doing the work even with the low interest. I have allot of fond memories of these forums and count many here now and previously, including yourself, as friends. Its good to relive those days and the passion we had for Breitling.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, the new releases are truly great. I am down to one Breitling in the collection, my beloved Navitimer, and now I am considering adding three more once the finances allow (if this pandemic is ever over), considering I moved on from Breitling as the first watch brand I was truly enthusiastic about to Pateks and Langes and now that passion is rekindled I would say that is no small feat!

Just want to add my Congrats to Fred and the team. The new releases are awesome. Someone posted a live shot of the pistachio on FB—it looks like a really subtle green. I love it. The hits keep coming and I’m still here trying to decide which one to buy!
