Hi

Im pretty new to breitlings, been doing some reading and some research... but there are so many different model types!!! :shock:

So i thought i'd just ask! im after a breitling, not decided which one yet. I have liked a few but was wonderign whether there is a particular breitling that has the roman numerals dial from the crosswind

and the chrono evo buttons on the side like this

And possibly a black dial? Im looking to use the diamond bezel also. Having a bit of trouble finding anyone selling this square cut bezel with diamonds along the top and side. Like the one in this video 8)

Also anyone know of any reputable websites to purchase a breitling? or just to have a look around?
Ive heard about aatime.com but not many others. Im based in the UK!

Any help is much appreciated
Thanks
Calico

Hi Calico - welcome aboard.

The Breitling with the Crosswind style roman numerals you refer to is from the Chronomat range. Chronomats are currently available with either batton markers, arabic numbers or roman numerals. The roman numeral versions are currently only wideley available on the two tone stainless steel/rose gold models, but there is now an all stainless steel version available. These are a little harder to find at the moment in the UK, but they are about.

In terms of where to buy one, then aatime.com is pretty good, but the prices aren't as good as if you buy from abroad. However if you buy outside of the EU (where all the good deals are!) you will be stung for VAT, import duty, handling costs, etc when it reaches Blighty. If somewhere abroad appeals to you then check out interwatches.com, jomashop.com and prestigetime.com. All are reputable and have pretty good prices.

Happy hunting! :thumbsup:

Hi

You also have the Chrono Cockpit, which should meet your required spec...
