Hi all,

It’s the end of August, 2018, and I’m curious if there are any long term B50 owners who might share their impressions after owning one for a while. I still can’t get it out of my head, but would like to know how it treats owners after the honeymoon wears off.

Thanks,
Henry

I had one for well over a year and liked it. That being said, it did have to go to BUSA twice for service. Once it was sorted out, it worked flawlessly. The only reason that I sold it was because it would not fit under shirt cuffs...

Love mine and have had it for a little over a year. A bit hefty on the wrist but it is a very cool watch. Mine had to go back when I first got it 2 times, both for LCD issues. Has run flawlessly since though. Love the rechargeable battery. It is also a pretty versatile watch as I can wear it on rubber, Croco or the bracelet so you can dress it up or down if you want.

I've not had mine for too long, just at 9 months or so. I'm happy as all get out. I've charged the battery twice and it's sitting at about 80% right now.

Glad I bought it. It looks big but it's light.

I've mine now since 3 years.
It was one of the Basel fair Collection pieces . I bought from the original owner.
The watch had some software updates done at Breitling, also the loading cable was changed to a newer version, but since than it works without issues. I wear it actually on a rubber mesh with a pin buckle which is more friendly to my shirt sleeves than the deployment clasp.
The DLC has some marks, but that's how it gets when you wear it instead of leaving it in drawer.

Stay well clear and away from the B50 and B55.
