Chronograph, 44mm and Ladies.

They don't look like the old ones or the Superoceans. The bezel rather reminds me of the Chronospace. Details will follow.

Interesting - Chronospace like bezel intrigues me, looking forward to seeing them.

There goes the last bastion of the Breitling Bezel. The Avenger, Super Avenger, Seawolf, and Seawolf Chrono have lost their fortification. I predict the Avenger goes away, the SA gets the Buck Rogers bezel, and the Seawolf…………Buck?..............rubber?................ceramic?............or does it slip away due to the SO44? (my money is on the last option.)

:yeahthat Rider tabs are clearly history. :(

I'll be "interested" to see these new Colts, but I'm sure my interest will wane after about 10 seconds. A Chronospace bezel on a Colt?? Sounds plain weird to me.

The future Seawolf (if there is one) is the concern for me. I'm hoping a new one will arrive with a 3 hand in-house movement at some point, and I really want to be able to buy it. However, if the bezel is rubber and/or clearly not a proper diver's bezel it's a big no-no for me. I hope one day rider tabs come back. RIP The Rider Tab.

I'm disappointed to see Breitling changing the bezel (especially removing rider tabs). IMO it's like hitting the reset button and starting over on the climb towards "iconic".

Cool, I thought that line was killed and done.

The Colt44 is not a terrible looking watch, but the bezel says "Tag" to me. Maybe it has an Aquaracer feel to it. Not sure.

But WHY quartz? And why only a 44mm option? So much for a nice 41mm dress/casual automatic at a decent price. (please, no one suggest the Galactic 41!!).


Maybe I'm missing something, but now the only 3 hand models under 44mm are the SO, SOH42 and Galactic 41? Why on earth did they think the lineup was screaming for another 44mm model?

Oh well, except for a possible pick up of the SOH42 Breitling is off the charts for what appears to be a very long time.
