    Hi gregoryb, i just came back from the AD. Told him i'll wait for the new model and he's ok with it. Will be waiting for his call since he will check with Breitling Singapore about the price of the new model and will calculate the price to sell me, usually they give a 15/20% discount. Actually i went to the Breitling boutique before going to the AD store. I spoke with the rep and she told me Breitling dont do any modification for their watches. She said the only way is to sell your old watch and buy the new one........!! That is not good :( . I was also thinking the same, to just get the old model with a further discount from the AD and swap the bezel in the future when the color fades, but she broke my heart :(

    Sorry for resurrecting this thread but I keep looking at these and really like the watch. My only issue is that I'd want a link bracelet not mesh. Looking forward to seeing some wrist shots of these in the wild!

    the new models are in the Breitling boutiques, I tried on a blue bezel, stratus silver this past friday. While the upgrades are visually subtle they are IMHO well worth waiting for and deserved of the few extra bucks to get into it. And that's not even including the movement upgrade. As nice as the steel bezel is, the ceramic is a deep and rich tone and I prefer the newer hands quite a bit.

    I would buy one if I didn't already own the first SOH. The upgrades are worth the extra money if one values ceramic bezel, longer power reserve and dial symmetry in the 42mm model. I'm very happy with the older version.

    The SOH old or new is just a terrific looking piece IMHO. My wife thinks it's the prettiest watch in my collection by far, next to a PO2500, a Sea-Dweller, a Cayman and a Yacht-Master to name the most striking ones. The SOH is a true beauty.

    Most ADs will put whatever strap or bracelet you want onto the watch; mine had a rubber strap on it in the case and they swapped it for the mesh one I'd been coveting. I haven't seen many around on the link bracelet, though. The mesh suits it too well.

    Agreed. I couldn't be happier with mine, I think it's absolutely stunning and timeless.

    It'd be perfect if you could have it serviced at the Rolex Service Center in Dallas since it's a Tudor based movement.
    In my experience RSC Dallas blows Breitling service out of the water.

    It is a beautiful piece. Has anyone had any luck finding a grey market watch maker who is open to swapping the ceramic bezel onto one the First Gen models?
