hi everyone, just wondering if you could help...i love the style of breitling and have become very interested in purchasing one. i have looked at rolex in person and i just don't like them. i have not seen breitling in person yet but i have been looking online a lot. i just realized that i want a large watch. i tried on the new 31mm rolex and it looked so small and boring on me. can anyone help me find a larger sized ladies breitling? ive been searching online i am so confused about all of the models and styles.

here is what i like:

case: steel set with diamonds (would prefer white gold but i don't want to have it custom made)
dial: i love the face of the mother of pearl and breitling logo on the windrider starliner
strap: steel

any help you might give me would be greatly appreciated! thanks :)

Other than the DiamondWorks pieces there are no diamond set Breitling cases. You can get diamond set bezels in the Galactic range and that also includes ladies sizes. Not sure whether MOP dials are available on those yet as they were new for 2010, but I would anticipate that they will be soon if not now - check with the AD.

Definitely look at the Galactic 36, it's a really nice watch. There is also the Galactic 32 which I think generally looks a little bigger than a 31-sized Rolex, and might be worth considering.

Depending on where you are located, you might still be able to find diamond bezel Starliner new-old-stock of at an AD-- I know my AD had two last time I visited, both of which had a white MOP face.

Good luck with your search! :)

Try the Superocean II, 42mm, small for a Breitling but looks great on my wife, plus its Automatic as opposed to quartz, variety of colours available. I know its not marketed as a womans watch but who cares.

I have the chrono cockpit turquoise dial, wears great as a larger watch. Tons of compliments on it.

All the above suggestions are great choices! ...just to add one more, my AD has a new Blue dial Callisto on the steel bracelet that she is willing to sell well under $1800. The Callisto has a 34.4mm case and wears a bit bigger that some of the other watches with thinner cases.

...just thought I would let you know as there are no options for new Breitlings under $2k so this was a special deal. PM me if you're interred and I'll connect you guys. I don't work for them and wouldn't benefit at all if you decided it was a fit for you.

You could also get the Colt Oceane with diamonds. Its only 33mm but with the classic aeromarine style it wears a bit bigger. good luck with whatever you end up getting!
