Quite a lot of new stuff there

Two sizes of regular Chronomat 01 now

New 47mm Montbrillant (Legende replacement I assume)

The mid size SOH that we knew was coming

Larger SOII as an addition

GMT SOII

Chrono and non chrono versions of the TransOcean

I assume that 'Galactic Chronograph II' is the new BB - what a travesty.

Interesting. The Navi 01 still has the red seconds hand but has a black date window and a applied Yellow Gold Breitling Wings logo. I think I liked the LE better, although a black date wheel is nice.

A 44 mm Superocean! That'll open some eyes around here I bet.

The Galactic Chrono's bezel is a strange amalgam of the classic and new. It's the brushed/polished combo we're all familiar with, but still with that Buck Rogers font :roll: Is this the first compass bezel with the new font?

:cry:

I like the Transocean...I guess, the 42mm SOH is nice to see and I'm sure the 44mm SOII will be popular. I really can't believe that they're actually making that hideous Chronomatic with the red bezel though. It is nice to see two sizes of the Chronomat, I'm sure there are people who will be drawn to the smaller 41mm verson but that SOII GMT is really horrible in my opinion. It looks like they had some extra cases and movements from the failed Colt GMT+ (or whatever model they discontinued) and threw a rubber bezel on it. All in all I'm a bit dissapointed.

I kinda like the SOII 44...looks to be taking the place of the Steelfish? Kind of a shame on that note, but it's a nice addition for me.

I'll admit, I do like the Chronomat 44 "Flying Fish". I mean, it's a black on black B01 with a brushed bezel and baton markers so that's pretty sweet.

I will say that the compass bezel on the Galactic Chrono looks pretty good with the funky font, but I'm going to be very dissapointed if that's the BB replacement, which it sure looks to be.

Maybe the 46MM 1461. MAYBE.

If that's the Legende replacement, it will sell worse than the present model.

More rubber inserts. More crummy bezels. When will the madness end? In bankruptcy?

WTF? The Transocean non-chrono has an ETA movement. Why wouldn't they use a non-chrono in-house in it? That just doesn't make any sense to me. An ETA movement kinda makes that watch completely unimpressive to me.

Not a fan of eveything, but I do like several models.

I was a bit disapointed with the three hand Transocean. Just looks plain. I do like the al black dial chrono TO. I wasnt expecting that and Im sure it lessens the competition with the Navi 01.

The SOH 42 looks to be a nice compromise between the current models, although after wearing 46mm I doubt a 42 could satisfy the same urge.

Surprisingly I really liked the Superocean GMT, but the rubber bezel is a turn off.

Because they don't have it market ready yet.
