Wow - that Montbrillant is a surprise arrival.

Slightly disappointed by the Chronomat - I was expecting a normal one as opposed to a DB regular one - oh well. Do you know if the Chronomat is also black only Thomas?

Can we assume that if you can order them then you have a good idea of prices?

I agree Roff, it is a bit of a disappointment that it's a B01 not the Evo with a B01 movement but what can you do. Hopefully they still make one of those. I do like the Montbrilliant though and I can't get enough of that Navi, great looking watches, as for the others, yuck.

Any updates/pics on the Legende? I bet it'll be around £6500. :(

Cheers

I take it 'Durchmesser' means width, if so it's a pity that Legende is only 40mm! :shock:

Cheers

That's not Legende, it's ordinary Montbrillant (it grew for 2mm).
There's an error in Chronomat's diameter. :lol:

The Monty B01 is a definite surprise, but not a great one IMO as I've never liked the dinky little Monty much anyway. However, it's great to see another watch that manages to stay true to Breitling's heritage and is not covered in a layer of black paint!

I think I like the Chronomat B01 Limited. I definitely like the brushed finish and the black on black dial, (oh and the DB of course, although it saps the WR quite a bit - down to 200m), but I'm not 100% sure about the red subdial hands at this stage. I think I'll need to see a better publicity photo first. If it's done right it could look quite similar to the old Crosswind Special Sport - which is a good thing. Done wrong and..... well, it won't! I also wonder if it will have the LE number engraved on the side of the case like the Navi? Cool if it does! :D

The Navi B01 is still something of a standout as far as I'm concerned. It really does look almost perfect!

The in-house side of things is really looking up these days! Well done Breitling! :thumbsup:

However the non-in-house side isn't so great. That CM49 is STILL really hideous! :lol:

Correct, I do in fact need to go to Specsavers! :D

Totally agree with you there D8. The CM49 is terrible it actually looks like something you could pick up on holiday in Tenerife(at the beach)!

I still kinda like the Blackbird LE although I wouldn't purchase one.

The Navi B01 is awesome. I've had never really been a fan of the Navitimer range TBH until I bought the Legende, I've come to appreciate a totally different look to what first brought my attention to the Breitling brand. I loved the Legende, the B01 LE is stunning and I also loved the 125 Anniversary Navvi(I think that's right). :shock: .

If you're right in thinking this watch may be around the £6000 mark then I would probably have to say I won't be purchasing one but then again it wasn't long ago I said I wouldn't spend anymore than £3-£4000 on a watch! :wink:

Cheers

So, I got my first limited edition Chronomat 01 (there is no "B" anymore, as also Bulgari has a "Bzeroone" series) in the store. It is a really nice watch, but unless You look at the back, there is nothing special on it. There is not much difference to the normal Chronomat 01.

I have seen the Navitimer 01 already, it looks a lot better on my wrist, than the normal one.

Congrats on the Chronomat 01 limited! I think I'm going to put my name down for one soon!
