Not impressed with a B26, would have preferred a Valjoux 7753 based design and movement. Personally, I can't see spending that amount of money for a watch that isn't a tri-compax. Maybe in 3 or 4 years time as second-hand.

I will definately get an Aero Racer bracelet though at some point.

I suspect they have been shut down tight now.

I guarantee that Breitling is extremely PO'd about this.

I got a call on the weekend saying that there would be an announcement in mid February about an LE Navitimer of 2009 pieces with a "cool" bracelet. I was also told that this would be the first anniversary announcement.

However I was also told that I couldn't say anything to anyone. I have to assume that this is what they were talking about. I made a couple of calls when I first saw this and no one was talking at all - and to the best of my knowledge there has been very little new communication with the distribution network. in the last 24 hours or so.

Sorry, nothing at the moment. Although I am quite interested to see the back of the bracelet myself too. From the front it looks like solid steel. How is the size adjusted?

Probably something like the ocean classic bracelet. There has to be some links by the clasp.

Sorry guys but at the moment that non-articulated part of the bracelet is really reminding me of my mum's Gucci! :shock: I like bracelets to be of a uniform design all the way round - not necessarily of width, but certainly of design. The adjustment links on the mesh on the OC is part of why I'm not a big fan of that either. Call me Mr Picky, but these things bother me! :wink:

As always, my opinion may change, but this new bracelet is really not doing much for me at the moment.

Personally, this does nothing for me. I dont even like the looks of the new bracelet and would think a solid bracelt would be unconfortable.

NEXT.......
