    Incoming: LE Breitling Transocean Chrono/GMT

    Just had to share my excitement over this latest arrival! Breitling styling has never quite been my cup of tea, but when I saw the BaselWorld promos for the Transocean Chrono/GMT, I fell in love. For a long time now, I have been on the lookout for a combined chrono/GMT timepiece -- preferably, something with a dressier look (rather than a tool watch presence). For my taste, the styling of this Breitling really fits the bill in this regard. The guilloché treatment on the black dial is beautiful, and is complemented nicely by the mesh bracelet. I love the red accent of the GMT hand. Setting the watch has a smooth and solid feel. The in-house B04 movement is visible through the sapphire caseback -- apparently, a relative rarity for Breitling. The 43mm case is nicely sized, and the feel on the wrist is extremely comfortable. OK, I'll stop gushing now...

    Nice watch. I really like the Breitling Trans line. And agree that it does a nice job pulling off a fairly refined and almost dressy look. It would probably look pretty damn sharp on a good strap as well.

    Such a fantastic watch! Did you have to order it and wait a few months? Transocean Chrono's are generally a tough find.

    I'm not normally a fan of Breitling watches but that is one good looking piece. Congratulations.

    First off, thanks for the nice comments, folks!

    Agreed. That's why I also ordered a Breitling "gold" croco strap to go with it.

    Believe it or not, I contacted an AD (thanks to a referral from a fellow WUS member), they had it in stock, and I received it the next day!
