    My Aerospace Evo is great. Bought it from a WUS member and it has been dependable and tough. Its light, and the battery lasts fro a long time. It has been my go-to watch for the last several years except for more dress-up occasions.

    Thanks for posting. However, I do think most Breitling afficionados already know.
    Kind regards

    I know it shouldn't because of the digital display, but it always bugged me a little that the Aerospace models don't have a seconds hand. All my anadigis have had one. Aquaracer, B-1, Hamilton, even my Casio had one (I think, that watch wore big and flat so I sent it to a forumite for a reasonable price). Love the look, but I'm not sure I could actually own one

    A man's watch is a very cherished thing. You steal that, you might as well be stealing his soul.

    Bought this one years back more for bragging rights at parties then anything else! Great for traveling with the alarm, two time zones, plus the whole "crashed in the jungle" feature. One thing I think those of us that have these watches with the titanium bands love is that's its' it's super light and comfortable. It's not too large at all on the wrist either. For me it's a watch that I will never ever get sell. Anyone that gets their hands on one of these I'll tell them to keep it. My experience with the first free Breitling service was outstanding. They sent a proactive letter and the send, service and receive was quick and a great experience. Happy emergency owner.

    Actually, it is one my favorite features of the watch, the total lack and absence of a seconds hand.

    This also contributes to a cleaner looking dial and a more calming display of the time.

    Not having a stepped seconds hand, means less power drain on the battery and increased battery life. A B1/Airwolf you are lucky to get more than 2 years out of the battery. You do worse the more you use the alarm and backlit for the digital displays. You can easily go 4-5 years with the battery in the Aerospace.

    The Aerospace is a fantastic watch. To me it is the equivalent of the Rolex Datejust in the realm of fine Ana digi Quartz timepieces.

    The B1/Airwolf, B50/B55 all have more bells and whistles but the Aerospace still has something about it that makes it special. Love the looks, the extreme comfort, the low profile case, the buttery bracelet. Simple and elegant yet full of functionality. Can't think of any other watch that can be dressed up and down as easily as this one. Heck even te CEO of Chevron wears a black Volcano 42mm Tuxedo dial model over Pro 2 bracelet. Jerry Senfield has been spotted wearing a white dial Aerospace. It is really a great piece. Highly recommended.

    Have also owned an Airwolf LE, B50 Cockpit Night Mission and now thinking of getting a B55 Exospace Connected to make company for my Aerospace.

    What's the maintenance like on one of these things? I assume it's a bit more than a battery, right?

    Earlier reference was you need 100 posts in order to sell. Nice watch despite it becoming obsolete.

    Have anyone tried the locator beacon? Is it like once it's activated, it cannot be turned off? Was pretty close getting one from the early 2000, kinda regret I didn't...
    Life is too short to have fake watches.
