The anthracite dials look amazing in person. The Bentley dial is interesting for sure. Thanks for all the coverage during the even Fred and congrats on an excellent release in the 806!

Wow, I'm thoroughly impressed with all the work that Breitling has put in over the last year to truly reinvigorate a brand that was floundering a bit. They absolutely won the show. The anthracite dials look stunning on both the Premier and the Aviator 8!!! I was always a fan of that general color scheme going back to the black-eye-grey chronomat evolution, but the sunburst anthracite takes it up about 10,000 notches.

The simplification of the new superocean line is a win as well. I didn't take the time to sift through the many different color/size variations to see if there is anything truly for me, but glancing at the pictures they look great.

And again hats off to Fred for his hand in what seems to be the most well received watch at the show in the 806. It's good to know that the current leadership respects the heritage and is willing to listen and learn from your knowledge base. And also good to know that they aren't afraid to change course and adjust on the fly if they deem something to be a misstep (as many perceive the original naming of the Navitimer8 ).

Overall just an outstanding job by Breitling and I can't wait to check out some of these new pieces in the future and also can't wait to see what else is in store since Fred just keep teasing us with the fact that this is just the beginning!

Those red-handed Chronograph 43s are for me the best thing they've done in years. Slightly too large for me to carry off I fear but I can't wait to see one.

Welcome back Serge! I keep contemplating selling my Datejust 2 for the new anthracite dial Premier chrono. I just need a chance to see them both in person next to each other.

I had a DJ2, it’s a beautiful watch, that would be a tough call. The anthracite dial Premier is awesome but the Panda dial did it for me. Blown away by it. Out of all the Breitlings I’ve owned this is by far my favorite piece and the new deployment/strap style is a welcomed change.

Thanks! I hope you get one soon! It’s the perfect Breitling until George forces them to use ceramic cases on certain models (IWC Top gun) which we’ve been waiting years for!
