Hey Guys,
I am looking to purchase the latest version in 44mm. The one that speaks to me is the blue with bracelet. Do any owners care to share how this watch wears? Is it a really heavy piece? Does the 44mm version seem to wear a little big or is it hardly distinguishable from the 42mm. My wrist is about 7 1/8 inches so I know I may be pushing it a little but I like my diver watches a bit on the larger side. I wouldn't go bigger than a 44mm on any watch for that matter. Anyway, just trying to get some opinions and perspective before I pull the trigger on this one. This would be my second Breitling purchase. I bought a Chronomat Evolution back in 2006 when I was in my twenties but gave it to my father for his 60th birthday. A gift that was well deserved.. I picked up a Speedmaster Pro since then but I miss having a Breitling.

Cheers.. any thoughts would be very appreciated.

Nice looking watch. I have the Chrono II, same size. It’s large but not too. Your wrist can handle that.
Not much larger than a Speedy Pro.

I ended up going with the 44mm and love it! Looks stunning in natural light and the lume is great but not overkill. It comes off like a great tool watch that screams “Take me to the beach!!!” Ha!

Hi, rest assured this watch will be perfect on your 7 inch plus wrist (LOL). It's it's relatively thin watch and the case shape with the nicely downturned lugs, hugs the wrist nicelly. I have the previous iteration here....

...my wrist is just under 7 inches and it's looks good on my wrist IMO. I have absolutely no problem wearing this & it has a nice 'heft' to it as well. My watch is exactly the same as the one you are looking at except the updated face.
I love it. Good luck with whatever you decide.

44mm on 7 inch wrist works well. Will have Wyatt presence in a good way. I daily wear the Chrono II on rubber strap
