Chronomat 01 GMT :D very good size, excellent proportions nice dials, reasonable price difference to the normal 01 (about 600 Euro)

New Chrono Galactic: :banhim: Most unnecessary piece there is in the collection. Its more or less an old Chronomat with 7750 and the former dials, but all satinated. It won't stay in the collection for more than 2 years.

New Superocean Heritage: :) good size, clean product, nothing spectacular.

New Colt series: :( Will follow in September...

Transocean: :D Very beautiful watch, good chronograph, perfect normal watch, but I am afraid, it will hardly sell, as it rather looks like a Zenith or Blancpain then a Breitling...

Galactic 36 Steel/redgold :) Well, there it is. Just to complete the group. First ones reached my store already today!

Bentley in Titanium: :lingsrock: Great, but a little bit expensive. My agent offered me the perpetual at a price I could not say no (Limited Edition in titanium, dial with red or green (I took the green one), 25 pcs per version, kautschuk strap). Anyone interested in a Mark VI 1461 silver dial, steel bracelet?

I think I forgot some, but I left my runway at home, and the runway is not complete...

You mean to say Thomas that the Colt series will be revived? With an in-house movement maybe?

Why didn't they show it at Basel? :roll: :o

Thanks Thomas.

You'll see from the threads in the main Breitling section that there is some lively debate on the models, but overall sentiment seems to be rather disappointed.

Good news that the Colts will be revived, hopefuly they'll be spared the weird font treatment.

Any news on timing of the next 'real' in house movement (as opposed to the GMT module on the 01)?
