    New arrival, Gotham Black Torneau, opinions?

    Hey all, this was on the sale/trade forum and I just got it through a trade deal with a great seller, anyway this pic was off of the interweb as I have yet to take a pics of it (got it yeaterday). Wife says it is flashy as heck and the black sections of the dial "sparkle" in the sun. Breitling anti-reflective coating on the front sapphire AND back sapphire crystals. A very imprssive and heavy piece of watch. Pic is below, any opinions or anyone with some ecperience with tourneau timepieces?

    In the centre of the dial I keep seeing the Batman logo!

    Tourneau is a watch retail store. They have watches made for them and put their name on the dial. I believe they are decent watches, nothing particularly special in terms of quality, but decent quality for what you pay. You can go to their website and see their current offernings.

    This particular watch has a very busy dial.
    Chronographs: Breitling 2 tone Chronomat Evo, Roger Dubuis Easy Diver, DeWitt Academia Sequential, Franck Muller Conquistador, IWC Aquatimer, Hublot Oceanographic 1000, Parmigiani Pershing 45, Paul Picot Plongeur, Royal Oak Offshore Gstaad, Franck Muller Vanguard Carbon, Franck Muller Conquistador, Chopard Mille Miglia, Zenith Defy Aero.. 3 Hand: Angular Momentum diver, Bucherer ScubaTec 2-tone, UN MM Diver 2-tone, Omega Ploprof, Ball Hunley, Omega SM 300 Master Co-Ax 2-tone, Chopard Pro 1, Zodiac Super Sea Wolf, Panerai Sub ti, Monta OceanKing, Breitling SOH II

    It is certainly an eye catcher! Not necessarily my style but unique.
