Hi guys here is a question... What is the biggest face Breitling out there? I found the Navitimer World at 46mm what else? I have an 8 inch wrist so 38 to 40 looks like a ladies watch LOL. I am wearing a B1 which is ok and have an older Chronomat but this looks small... So what's the options? Hercules? Is there any big current models? Thanks guys and gals get your thinking caps on :) Appreciate it Regards Dave

Motors / Motors T is "only" 48.7mm. GMT and CM49 are the biggest.

The best bang for your buck is the super avenger @ 48.4mm

Yeah, but being 0.6mm narrower than the Bentley GMT, it's kind of puny, isn't it?

Once it gets over 46mm...they all look huge to me.

My 6.75 doesn't feel that big anymore. I think you soon get used to the size. I think I might have to move onto wall clocks next :mrgreen:

Biggest actual watch would seem one of the 48ers, but some of them are as much case as face. For instance, my 43mm Navi Heritage looks like it has a much larger face than my 44mm 'fish. I think Navitimers show more actual face than any Breitling, and it looks even bigger when the EB6 bezel is the same color. I haven't put them up against each other, but I think a silver faced World or Legende might have the largest face (not case) of any Breitling. The 49mm Chronomatic could eke them out, I suppose.

a few cheap but fun pieces...
...and if these new models keep showing up like this, inevitably a Breitling again.

if you are looking for a "huge" watch i would suggest the super avenger. the dial is a fraction of a mm smaller than the motors but the thickness of it almost gives the illusion that the watch is bigger.

I recently bought a Breitling Navitimer Montbrillant Legende and that is all face. It is like a normal Navi but 47mm instead. I shall try to upload a pic of it. I think the actual face is a lot bigger than my Super Avenger but it doesnt look half as chunky.

Navis do look big due to the size of the face area I keep looking at navi worlds as the moment. I think I'm on the slippery slope to another watch.
