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...

    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.
    the difference is huge too. But breitling prices them so high, it actually hurts the resale on the factory watches. My factory bezeled sa cost 13k new, i cant get 5k for it. Its like 8k in addition to the watch from them and the aftermarket ones, although the quality difference in huge, i had an aftermarket bezel on my last crosswinds special, nobody is willing to pay for that quality.

    Caught Bear Grylls (from Man vs. Wild) on David Letterman tonight. They showed some new Dos Equis webisodes he made where he beats up some street thugs. Featured prominently in one shot is his yellow emergency.

    For those interested:

    Click "Survival in the modern era", then
    Click "Personal saftey."

    There's a little viewer window where you can play the vid, and even expand it full screen.

    Double spot on UK BBC1 Celebrity MasterChef tonight, sports personality Iwan Thomas was sporting what looked like a silver dial Navitimer World and Actor Ian Bleasdale was sporting a classic Navitimer baton dial.

    Bear Grylls, after his stint with the Bremont, went back to the Emergency, but the black dial one. I believe this is the one he wore to the summit of Everest, from the pictures i've seen. it's engraved with the date at time that he reached the peak.

    Bear has been wearing a bunch of stuff lately. In the new season it looks like he's been wearing some Casios, but I could be wrong. I watched the Will Ferrel special last night and it looked like he was wearing a G Shock.

    I was watching "On Thin Ice" on UK BBC2 last night where Ben Fogle, James Cracknell and Jonny Lee Miller are attempting a race to the South Pole.

    Ben a known Breitling Emergency wearer was wearing a coral dial E (only seen him wear yellow before) and then later on a quick glimpse showed Jonny wearing an E, but only a side shot.
