    I was searching for diamond Breitling bracelets and came up with this detail-rich pic of Criss Angel and his Super Avenger Diamondwerks. And God love him, he appears to wear this watch ALL THE TIME!!

    Hi, Pearle. Love the SA and I enjoy watching Criss work but unfortunately his SA is missing the rider tabs. :oops: Well, that wouldn't happen if he stuck with the plan and bought the piece with the factory diamond bezel...

    That is a custom bezel, isn't it?? "Rider-tabs"...is that what we call the markers at the quarter-hour? (Love the watches, still learning the language!) Appreciate the insight!

    Hi, Pearle. Yep, that's an aftermarket bezel on Criss' SA. Aftermarket diamond bezels typically have more carat weight than factory diamond bezels, however, typically the "custom" stone settings simply do not hold a candle to the OEM version IMHO. Additionally, the color and clarity of aftermarket diamonds are not "Top Wesseltons" of VVS1 clarity and D color as the factory supplied stones are. Aftermarket diamond bezels can be found for less than a thousand dollars whereas the OEM bezels add a few thousand to the cost of a watch. If Criss Angel brought his watch into an AD's shop and held it side by side with an SA equipped with the factory diamond bezel, he would quickly recognize the difference I assure you...
    Cheers,
    Ron


    PS. And yes, those are "rider tabs" on the factory bezels. They assist the wearer in turning the bezel even when wearing gloves although they are also known to ruin a sweater or two... LOL.

    Re: Breitling Celebs

    I LOVE the rider tabs! If I'm in an especially long & dreary meeting, I'll hold the watch in my right hand and worry the bezel with my thumb.

    If the meeting goes way too long, I'll look at the watch, give the bezel a 360 degree twist (as loudly as possible), then make a production of putting my watch back on. That usually brings a meeting to a halt pretty quickly!

    Question Re: Breitling Celebs

    I'm sure I saw Alan Hansen wearing a Breitling in an ad on UK TV Sun 3rd Nov. Was very quick & I wasn't paying much attention. Can anyone confirm again please?
