    RIP TOC/GMT

    OK, so this is a lament for the TOC/GMT, which has now disappeared from Breitling's line-up. It was only ever offered as a limited edition, and perhaps the sales never took off. I am sad to see it go, and hope that at some point it may return.

    For me, the most useful travel watch is one that has both a chronograph and a GMT function, and is versatile enough to wear casually, as well as in a business setting (in other words, no external rotating bezel). I had been looking for this kind of combination for some time before I discovered the TOC/GMT. To my mind, it is one of the nicest watches out there with this particular combination, bar none.

    I think it would make sense for Breitling to bring back a GMT to the Transocean line. (Hey -- if you're crossing oceans, you need a GMT!!!) Offering GMT versions of the standard TOC would be great -- much the same as Breitling does with the Chronomat.

    Ah, well. Guess we'll see what happens down the road. In the meantime, when I'm traveling, this one will be along for the ride...

    One of my favorite recent releases, it's too bad they're not offering it anymore.

    A big +1! Arguably the most elegant and handsome piece from the brand in quite a long time...
    Best,

    Agreed, Ron.

    Incidentally, one of the really nice aspects of the limited edition is the fact that the particular guilloché pattern on the dial mirrors the pattern of the mesh bracelet. It's a beautiful and subtle touch.

    Not massive and ostentatious enough for the brand's image.

    Well, now is the time to pick one up! I'm sure that AD's will be looking to move remaining pieces at a significant discount!!

    Love it. Not over the top like some of the other Breitling models.
