Andrew Michaels Jewellers of Newark, UK have generously agreed to lend me watches to review.

Understandably, Andrew would like me to publish the reviews on their own website and simply ask you to navigate there.

These reviews will be written for people like yourselves: Breitling fans. So please let me know if you would like to see anything particular for future reviews (the watches, the way the reviews are written, etc.) and we will do our best to comply with your wishes.

First of all is the amazing Breitling Seawolf:

Great review, Ricardo-- very informative and I loved the closing line. :D

Also nice to finally properly understand the escape valve mechanism deep depth dive watches, so cheers for that!

Thank You for Your kind words Ms Anez.

Sadly, I don't think this watch would suit your dainty wrists. :wink:

Ricardo,

Great piece :thumbsup: .

I just picked up a late 2004 SeaWolf and couldn't be happier with it, and your article just re-emphasises why it's a great watch for the money.

We all want to know - what's next for the Ricardo Review :poke: ?

Cheers
Mike

Thank You Mike.

I have few reviews lined up for the near future. Not all of them Breitlings.

All I can say is, watch this space. :wink:

Great review mate, on a classic watch that looks great...Except on you and my wife's little chicken wrists. Rule NO.1 when wearing a Breitling...if you can't see the side of your arm or worse the bracelet,then this is a sure sign you need to consider a smaller model from the Breitling range.
This is a watch that because of its generous proportions demands a larger wrist. Otherwise you will look like my 6 year old wearing an Aerospace! Not a good look.
Everything in proportion.

So, I'm guessing you think these are too big for me aswell then. :roll:

Lovely watches mate!! Is that "Graham" steam or diesel powered? LoL!! While your wrists/hands are not the biggest, I reckon you just about get away with it!
Maybe its just the sheer monsterous size of the Seawolf that makes even average sized wrists look pueny?
Whatever you think,You could never accuse the Seawolf of being sleek or descreet.
I love its rugged in-your-face,built to last look,with minimum (read no)features.
Its possibly even too tough for Chuck Norris to wear..

Yeah... great review. One of my favorite watches.
I have the same on proII/OR.
Two days ago I opened the watch to regulate (+10p/d). So COSC... F*** COSC! haha.
Now it's perfect!
Compared to an avenger it looks very similar, but you can't appreciate the thickness of the case until you remove the caseback.
