    U1 or a Breitling Skyracer

    Hey all, a little help here please! I have the opportunity to either purchase a Pre-Owned U1 with strap and bracelet or a new Breitling Colt Skyracer. Iím really torn between the 2. Iíve always been a micro brand person as I have a TMD Industries diver and a Govax so itís not the Breitling name that I need. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Between these two.... U1

    Is Breitling Breitlight some sort of carbon/plastic? It seams really light at 39 grams. The 21mm lug width is a no go as well.

    Good luck on your decision

    If it were my choice it would be a walkover for the U1.

Size:  171.8 KB I think it is a no-brainer. Breitlings are sold at COSTCO and department stores and have nothing really unusual - the U1 is a very unusual watch.

    Go with the U1. It's wonderful, unique and tough.

    I vote U1 (and have voted with my wallet), and most people on the Sinn subforum will also. Answers might be different in the Breitling group.

    Funny and true, U1 is a very well built and unique watch. U1 all the way.
