Hi everybody. I'd like to thank everybody here for the wealth of information they have provided me for over a year. I've been lurking on this forum to learn more about Breitlings, and I've finally arrived at the decision that I need to get a Breitling on my wrist. For that, I thank you all.
My ONLY reservation is that Breitlings are pretty flashy. I'm not talking cost, I'm talking about reflecting light. FLASHY. I've gotten kinda good at it, and can spot a Breitling from about 30 feet away now. I won't be able to tell you the difference between a new SuperOcean and an older one...but I can you a Colt from a SuperOcean. What I can also tell you is that its flashy.
Are there any subdued (non-vintage) Breitlings out there? I don't really care about the dial color...but I do really care about the bezel (very noticeable) and the case (the bracelet isn't that big of a deal since it can be replaced...but the bracelet usually matches the casing/bezel pretty well).
I know that some consider this "flash" a part of why they have a Breitling, but I prefer a less flashy watch. I don't want to get a completely stealth watch...but maybe something that can't be identified from 30 feet away in the California sun.
Any chance this is a possibility?
