    I agree. While the tudor is nice, Breitling needs to get on the ball adding more in-house movements in their watches.

    I agree also looks like breitling need to catch up with the likes of Rolex Omega METSA.

    I think the updates are a good start, but it's hard for me to justify spending the increased amount on the nice new shiny watch when the SOH I can be had for low $2Ks used and around $2800 on grey market. However, I've seen the SOH II on grey market for $3,500 and it may be worth the extra $700. Back to the drawing board I suppose....

    I finally figured out why I prefer the V1 so much... and I swear it has nothing to do with the fact that I own one.

    The chrome ring inside the bezel on the V1, rather than the bezel running straight to the crystal, makes the watch look more refined and less chunky in my opinion. I do also prefer the lack of a lume pip at the top but that chunkiness is what was really throwing me.

    That's an excellent observation and I don't know how I missed that? I think I was just sucked in by the rich bezel color and scratch resistance. But yeah there's something to that for sure.

    This may be whY I felt the new SOHII played similar to my Oris Aquis

    Thanks! It took me forever to notice but I can't un-see it now. The polished inner ring adds a unique delicacy to it, I think.

    Not that these pictures do it justice at all, but:

    I'm probably blind, but I can't see the big difference in the polished ring. Personally, I was a big SOH fan to begin with and will always like the SOH I, but the 2 intrigues me with the ceramic bezel and the 5 yr warranty helps too. The hands are a nice touch too. Hopefully I can pick up a SOH I, at a better price now

    It's a subtle difference in pictures but in person or on film it's very noticeable, especially if you're used to one or the other. I hadn't seen the II on film until yesterday - and I try to stay out of ADs unless I'm ready to buy since it has negative effects on my wallet - which is why I just noticed.
