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!


Congrats on the purchase ! Yes please report how you go on with the B55 as I’m in the same case. Also disappointed here that nothing really new in the professional line

Is anyone buying anything that was released this year? I'm sitting this year out after the SOHC purchase.

That’s a very tough call, given Fred’s heads-up that there are still some noteworthy releases expected later this year...

I will do my best to follow Freds advice and wait, though I am itching for a Premier, love the Panda, green and walnut Bently models as well.

I have to say, Breitling are starting to overtake Rolex! Definitely in terms of execution, value, and interesting releases. I just wish they would go all in house to have the same level of watchmaking credibility....

I did, amazing. The one in Bahrain is not bad either!

The question is, which premier? :?

I'm asking myself the same question! :D For me it's the Panda or the Norton. I love the walnut (actually elm) Bentley, but I think it'd get less wrist time that the others. I think the Panda still edges the Norton for me by a whisker.

I'd wait to see what the anthracite dial looks like in real life. I think in the sun, that dial would be hard to beat.

Just got my first glimpse of the anthracite dial Premier. Wow — looks like that one could be killer!

I just checked out Fred’s Instagram page and saw the anthracite dial and I’ll echo your comments, wow.

George sent over a few wrist shots from their meeting with Breitling and included the Superocean Heritage Chrono with the silver dial on the nato strap that mysteriously disappeared from Breitlings website.

Fred - any insight to why that model went away?

There's a video (just a few seconds long) of the anthracite dial Premier on FB at the moment.....and I agree it looks damn nice!
