Uh oh - incoming!
Well my 2nd a32350 is on its way to a new owner, and the above a32390 is on its way to me.
Just to offer a few rambling thoughts...
I ultimately decided that I wouldn't be able to "bond with" a heavily used watch. Of all the watches I've bought and sold, the ones I tend to keep were purchased new at the AD. So I debated heavily between:
A) a32390 (Avenger II GMT)
B) a17365 (Superocean II 42)
C) Tudor 79220b (bbb ETA)
D) Tudor 79230b (bbb in-house)
I chose the a32390 due to several factors.
1) Breitling is so unique. Love them or hate them. They have a design aesthetic like no other. On this one, the red/white/blue combo just pops.
2) Case size: 43x12. Similar to my Aquis but with a more slender bracelet. The Superocean and BBB (especially the in-house version) were thicker, limiting versatility. I wanted something that would fit under a cuff.
3) AR. Love that Breitling AR. If the 79220b had AR there may have been a different outcome.
4) The polish. It's polarizing. It's blingy. Maybe even showy. But my other daily wearer is a Sinn 856 UTC, the anti-bling, so this will provide a nice balance. And when it starts to get scratched up I can always have it brushed. TBD.
So I found a lightly pre-owned example and worked out a partial trade for my a32350. It arrives today, so I hope it meets or beats my expectations!

Anyone on the fence on this one should know, it's amazing.
