Since nobody has started a thread yet, I figured I'd start a general discussion on them. Here is a link to the new watches page:

New Watches 2019

I was a bit surprised at the new Navitimer time only in 41mm but I guess I can see demand being there. I really like the black eye blue Superocean Heritage Chronos and I love the Nato strap on the SOHC with the silver dial. The anthracite dial on the Premier looks interesting and I'm looking forward to the real life shots.

The Superoceans(including SOH) are the grand winners of 2019 new offerings IMO.

Yes I saw the updates on the website earlier today, but TBH I think the best of the new stuff has been previewed before.

The 41mm Navi 3-handers are new and look decent enough, but the likes of the Navi Ratty and "Chronograph GMT" (i.e. Navi World) are just rebadged older models as far as I can tell. Other than that it's a few dial colour changes it seems.... most of which I'm not that keen on - black-eye anthracite (there's a mouthful) and black-eye-blue are never my favourites TBH. One oddity I did notice though is that the 48mm SO seems to be missing from the site.......

I didn't even realize the Superocean 48 wasn't shown on there. I like the black eye blue SOHC but I just wonder if it would have looked better with a blue bezel. One thing you'll notice if you ever get a chance to see the blue ceramic bezels in person is that they're the perfect shade of blue. I'm not just saying this because I own one, but it's not too purple and not too bright. I wonder if it would have been better to reverse the colors on that model, something similar to the Navitimer from a few years back.

I attended the opening of the Scottsdale Breitling boutique a couple of weeks ago and thought to myself how much I liked the three-hand Navi, but just a touch too small for me. Really like that they did it in 41mm. I haven't looked to see thickness yet but hopefully fairly thin as a benefit of no Chrono complication.

...and if these new models keep showing up like this, inevitably a Breitling again.

Feel free to skip over the Tudor booth. Any chance you can find out the retail on the blue Nato strap offered on the super ocean heritage with the silver dial? I'm really hoping it's not the same $180 or so that Omega charges for their Natos.

Justin, where are you seeing that NATO? I can’t seem to find a picture of it. Is it the OK nato?

Hi all.

Do love that 806 but still out of reach of me since retirement.

The Superocean Steel with Orange instantly hurled my mind to the fictional character Dirk Pitt created by Clive Cussler [Loved his books] Dirk Pitt always wore a DOXA Diver with an Orange dial. I don’t think the model no number was specified but likely a 300T

Never did get my hands on one of those.

New preview for Basel. I think Breitling has some very exciting news this year.

Georges Kern:
"BASEL PREVIEW NEW PRODUCT: the Breitling Cockpit Orbiter Limited Edition to commemorate the 20 years anniversary of the around the globe flight of the Breitling Orbiter 3. This watch is crafted from black carbon coated titanium and is limited to 213 pieces (please swipe and check out the cool engraving). It is also an homage to and extraordinary man who realized an incredible achievement: Bertrand Piccard. Very happy to have Bertrand as part of our explorers squad!"

So nothing new in the professional line up to replace the now, as I understand it, out of production Aerospace?

I'm slightly disappointed but at the same time breathing a bit of a sigh of relief. I've been to see the same watch at LHR T5 passing through four times and each time getting more into it... and I sort of accidentally bought it last night.

I'm the proud owner of a B55 exospace night mission on Diver Pro III (tang) and would have been gutted if the next day I'd seen a new professional release that fitted perfectly between the outgoing Aerospace and the B55!!

I'll let you know how I get on with the Exo, but so far, I love it!

This is a screenshot I took yesterday from my phone. It doesn't look like this watch is up anymore.

Not saying the blue bezel wouldn't look nice -- but, damn, the black-eye blue version is just a fantastic looking SOH!!! :lingsrock:

Time to pick up a matching SOHC to your Navitimer?

LOL!!! Well, the Navi is actually a blue-eye black -- so the SOH would complement it nicely! :D
