    Re: Thoughts on the new SuperOcean Heritage II

    Makes sense for Tudor and Breitling to exchange use of the movements they specialize in. That helps keep costs down especially considering the overall state of the Swiss watch export market.

    I'm a little surprised that Breitling still uses 7750 based movements when they have their own manufacture movement, but perhaps it has to do with the vertical vs horizontal dial layouts.

    I am partial to blue watches and the "gun blue" of the SOHII is quite beautiful.

    Is the date at 6 on all sizes now (apart from Chrono?). If so, that's a nice improvement.

    The hour hand has been ruined though.

    I like the hand set. But maybe I just like watches with "ruined" hour hands.

    The ceramic bezel and lume pip is a very nice and welcome change. I prefer the simpler hands on older version to the new hands.

    Disappointed that they stuck with 7750 on the chrono version. Why not use the B01??

    I lusted after an SOH chrono for a very long time and finally pulled the trigger last year. Kicking myself now. If I waited another year I could have got the ceramic one.

    I like all the changes except the changed hands and extra thickness.

    I think it was a good move, mainly to keep the cost reasonable. Since Tudor wanted their B01 chronograph why not collaborate and make it a win-win for both parties. I'm not really hung up on the whole in-house movement thing anyway, as long as it's good quality.

    The new improvements to the SO Heritage II are nice, don't know about the hour hand though, would have to see it in person - looks a little too bold in pics.

    (p.s. - just saw Raymond Weil collaborating with Sellita on what they call an in-house movement, we may see more of this)

    I'll have to see this in person. Does anyone know when it can be expected to arrive at AD's?

    An open display back would've been an added bonus.

    The new set of hands is a nod to the original '57 model. I like it.

    Gotta love the new ceramic bezel!

    @dood We're always going to want the new stuff, it never ends!

    @dreamer00 I agree, extra thickness isn't the way to go

    @Jazzmaster I liked the new set of hands being a tribute to the original, it's all in the details
