Oh dear, vintage looking flyer font and old style Breitling text suggests something inspired by history - I'm not sure my wallet can handle this every year

Great looking pieces! :thumbsup:

I would've liked a little more info on the webcast though - prices, movements, dial colour options, sizes, etc.

Fred, you beat me to it!

Further information, along with pricing is now available on the Breitling website.

Excellent. I checked the Breitling website immediately after the webcast and there wasn't anything there. I guess I was a bit too premature (again! :wink: :lol: ).

So, my immediate thoughts -

I absolutely love the new B15 Duograph. The red gold version is stunning but obviously expensive, but fortunately the SS version with the blue dial is equally gorgeous. :thumbsup:

The B09 version has a great dial design, but I must be honest I'm not feeling the Pistachio Green. And for just an extra £1500 you can get that stunning SS Duograph, so for me the Duograph is a no-brainer there.

The B25 Datora version is also absolutely gorgeous and I must confess to liking the copper dial on the SS version. If it's all a true in-house (i.e. not "just" a B01 with a 3rd party module on top, or a modified 7751) then I'm liking that one a lot. Just a side point though on movement nomenclature - the B25 always used to be an ETA 2892-based chrono used in the Bentley range (albeit with a B after the B25 - i.e. B25B). Why are the numbers being reused? Just seems a bit confusing when it could easily be named something totally different.

Lastly, and probably one for Fred, I'm curious to know why certain new Breitlings are only available in fairly niche colours. For example, I'm pretty sure that Pistachio green is going to sell less than a black or silver dial would. Same with the Datora - personally I really like the copper, but if it was available in black or silver... :thumbsup: I've got nothing against interesting colours, but I would like to see them offered in additional to more traditional options.

But all in all, I think they're absolutely stunning new pieces. Well done Breitling!
