    Breitling Chronomat B01 Limited Edition or Submariner

    Hey folks,

    I am torn between these two watches. So I would appreciate your feedback. Which one of these watches do you prefer and why?

    Breitling Chronomat Limited Edition B01

    Breitling Chronomat 01 Limited Edition - Watchluxus

    or the Rolex Submariner

    This is going to be an every day watch, so mostly casual. They are both beautiful watches and I am having difficulties deciding on one of them :) Clearly the Rolex is a classic, the Breitling is a little more unique.

    Because of it's uniqueness, I think you'll find you tire of the Breitling. Rolex Sub... well, it's a Rolex Sub. And if you're talking about the new Sub-C, it's hip and cool as well as classy.

    Also just went and looked at the Breitling you're talking about. Something about them seems too busy, like they're trying too hard. That's all just my opinion though. Take it with a grain of pepper...

    I'd wait on any B01 powered watch. It's brand new and needs some time to work out the bugs. Nice looking watch though.

    What makes the Sub-C hipper and classier than the regular Sub?

    While that Breitling isn't my favorite, it's going to have better wrist presence than the tiny, tinny Rolex (I hate the Submariner's bracelet). Now the Breitling against the Rolex Deepsea is a much harder decision, one that might flip me over to the dark side (Rolex). But in this case, I choose Breitling.

    Wasn't the movement introduced two years ago?

    it usually takes a few years for the kinks to be worked out of any new/newish movement. there may indeed be nothing there but i suggest waiting on the breitling to prove itself(for what it worth)

    A few years! Most car companies can clean up minor issues by the second model year. Watches are a lot smaller, I figure it would only take a few days, two weeks tops.
