Ognils: So you wear it in the shower etc ?
Since mine says 30M water resist I have not used it in the shower etc, but you have not had a problem with this ?

I thought 30M meant 30M and not just sprinkle proof. Its almost mis-selling.
I do regularly swim in it and even run it under the tap and clean it. I'm going to continue to too. If it breaks then I'll deal with it then.
There is no way the 'public' can be expected to know that 30M means 'don't get it wet'.
I actually spoke to my local Breitling service department and they confirmed that its only light wet proof. Mainly due to the lack of a screw down crown.
The Mission version however, which I consider to be less robust (because its prettier), has a screw down crown and thus, according to the Breitling man, is far more water proof.

It was that thread that I stumbled upon earlier that disappointed me.
Nevertheless its still a great watch.
FWIW I am a USAF flight engineer. Hopefully it will comfort all of you concerned to know that we ALWAYS monitor guard frequency (121.5)when flying. If we hear a beacon we mark it and call it in.
ps: we used to tune one guard to 121.5 vhf and one 343.0 uhf but that is not necessary now that our RTs are full spectrum ie very high through ultra high all in the same RT.
