    New Colt Chrono pics!

    Got myself a new breitling. I had the bracelet center links polished, so now I have PCL's. I think it should come with PCL's from the factory, it just looks so much better to me after getting it done. Now it goes brushed bezel-->polished case-->brushed outerlinks-->polished centerlinks (obviously as you can tell from the pics). I really love this watch.
    I was back and forth between the Colt and the Avenger II for a 7750 chronograph breitling. Glad I went with this one. There is only one Avenger II that doesn't have the goofy stencil numbers and unfortunately the subdials of it are not contrasting (sigh).

    So this is my baby tell me what you think!

    This is model A1338811/G804-173A with custom PCL's

    My first Breitling was a Colt so you have a fan here. That said I also like the goofy stencil numbers on the Avenger but I do think the Colt is a better all-around choice. If you want to throw it on a leather strap it dresses up real nice also. Congratulations and I hope you get many years of enjoyment with it.

    Thanks Frank! This one is a better fit for me where I'm at in life vs the Rolex hulk or the Breitling galactic 44 I had before. You helped advise me on this vs the avenger before if you remember!
    I believe a leather strap is in it's future as well. A horween or cognac type color would look great on it. And it goes excellent with a pair of silver mirrored rayban aviators

    Looks very good with the PCL's in actual fact. Like you say, the transitioning is good. Enjoy your new watch.
    I'm Breitling's newest fanboy after picking up my Galactic 41, they're super well constructed watches.

    Fine looking watch there. If this one does the trick for you then you made the right choice. The Avenger would have worn you down due to its size.

    This is 44mm the Avenger would have been 43mm so the size would have been the same (maybe a mm or 2 thicker?)
    I think you may be thinking of the 48mm super avenger yes that would be pushing it for my 7 inch wrist
