Breitling Supereocean Heritage Chrono 46mm

Posted on

Breitling Supereocean Heritage Chronograph 46mm on mesh bracelet, this a recent acquisition its the big brother to the Breitling superocean 44m I suppose the smarter looking versions.  The heritage range has been in production for 60 years was first launched in 1957 as a professional divers watch and later was used by diver enthusiasts.

The watch comes in two sizes 42mm and 46mm with non chronograph or with chronograph movement, this one is the chronograph Calibre 13 Cosc rated self winded 25 jewels with date aperture at 3 o clock power reserve 42 hours.  A blend of polished steel and small satin bits, Breitling have a lot of shinny watches in there collections polished to a high shine which is not to everyone tastes.

They have launched a Superocean Heritage II which looks the same almost part from the hands!!  Surprised Breitling not gone down the Ceramic Bezel route as most watch brands have I feel would make the watch a lot nicer looking and makes a better noise when rotating the bezel than steel sound.  I always liked the mesh bracelet on Breitling watches never was a leather strap type of guy love the bracelet look., the blue dial version is much nicer than the black in my opinion.

Breitling produce some great priced watches for the money this one is mid range model and is great all rounder smart and casual also a divers watch too not that many folk actually go diving with them!

Hands on With Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Wav511A, the grand Carrera’s are the higher end of the Tag Carrera range. I had a few grand Carrera’s in the past and they can be very pricey watches indeed. This watch model WAV511A is the simpler version of grand carrera calibre 6 movement with second counter at 6 o clock. case size is  41mm, water resistant to 100m so not a dive watch, the date window at 3 o clock, the glass is anti -glare sapphire crystal to stop sun reflection when reading the time of sunny days, a overall blend of polished and brushed stainless steel.

The bracelet is stainless steel with a clasp style closer with Tag Logo, this is the updated version bracelet for the carrera range.  I always prefer brushed steel watches they wear well over time and seem to pick up less marks on the bracelet.

The carrera has a nice see through caseback so you can have a peek at the movement. The watch is chronometer tested for time keeping as most Swiss watches are to be fair. The Tag is a great bit of kit always great value for money plus loads of racing heritage to boot, all most everyone has had a Tag Heuer for a first watch or owned one at some point.  I moved on fast from Tag Heuer once I found the love for the Rolex brand!!

Hands On With Rolex Daytona 116515LN

Posted on

Hands On With Rolex Daytona 116515LN Rose Gold, this in my opinion is the nicest looking Gold Daytona Rolex produce not too ostentatious on a Rubber B Strap as they can look over the top with full gold oyster bracelet. The watch original comes on a black or brown croc leather with the rose gold deployment clasp.  This model Daytona was probably the first of the Daytona’s to come with a ceramic bezel as I did always think why not put the ceramic bezel on the steel models? in 2016 at Basel they launched the steel Daytona with updated dial and bezel Rolex Daytona 116500LN  and was an instant hit waiting lists endless…. The white dial version Panda Dial always a hit white dial with black sub dials.

The Rose gold Daytona comes in 18K everose gold with a stunning chocolate dial with dark brown numbers not batons, black ceramic bezel with gold writing 400 kilometres or miles per hour. The movement is the Cal 4130 by Rolex fantastic chronograph movement features a parachrom hair spring which is Cosc rated to within 2 seconds which is another good selling point for Rolex!
If you eyes ares not that good the chocolate dial Daytona is terrible to see the time  at night but at worst I can check the time on my phone.

The oyster clasp looks stunning in everose gold with the rubber and this year at Basel World Rolex launched a new range to go a long side with Rolex 116515LN in a range of other precious metals 18k white gold and 18k Yellow gold on the oyster flex. The oyster flex is Rolex’s own rubber strap which is very nice indeed although not compatible with my model as the clasp fitment is different, Thanks Rolex was hoping to buy a oyster flex strap.  See picture below still think rose gold chocolate dial is the best looking one all thou the white gold version would be my second choice. I actual think would be nice to own all 3 versions and the steel white version but how many Daytona’s does a man need!!

The one thing I would say is great about this model on the rubber strap is the watch can be worn every day without looking really flash and wears well in casual wear as well as smart. The Daytona will always be a watch to have always has been, the gold versions are not as popular due to the price tag. The Steel Daytona in the shops excluding Rolex Authorized Dealers are fetching some where £14000 – £15000 so the precious models are not a great deal more also can be discounted so might worth a look at an used gold Daytona on leather strap if your thinking of the steel version.

Breitling Superocean Heritage A17321

Posted on

Here the Breitling Superocean Heritage A17321 is a recently acquired piece as I liked the blue dial. This superocean has long standing history with diving with Rolex & Omega dating back to 1950,s but has grown in size also in style.  The superocean Cosc rated with a case size of 42mm also a depth rating of 200 metres and comes on the Breitling mesh bracelet which is another reason I like this model, although straps can be optional from leather to rubber to steel bracelet.

The superocean sits well on the wrist with the stunning blue dial and blue steel bezel.  The watch has a “AR coating” anti reflection coating on the glass as most Breitling watches do and can be a bugger when you scratch or mark it. The watch has a automatic movement with a date window at 3 o clock the finish is highly polished steel which is the not unusual for Breitling.  I think the watch makes a great every day wearing piece which I feel is the target market fro Breitling. The watch looks great when wearing a white shirt also suitable for the office as well as pleasure.

Overall Breitling’s are under rated all round it might have something the do with re sale value rather quality of the watch.  My first watch was a Breitling Aerospace super quartz which I loved then moved on the Rolex.

The Superocean has a new make over at Basel 2017 with a ceramic bezel which most watch brands have moved to much harder wearing and does not fade over time.  Here is video by Hodinkee with the version Superocean.

Breitling Crosswind A13355 Stainless Steel Chronograph

Posted on

Here we have the Breitling Crosswind reference A13355 polished stainless steel is slowing becoming a classic watch design, I have owned a fair few over the years and they are not a small piece by any means, it measures 43mm in size with chronograph function with date window at 3 o clock.

The stunning white dial with raised roman numerals and raised Breitling logo also with a tachymeter around the inner bezel ring for timing distance to speed.  The rotating bezel just has the minute markers for diving and is water resistant to 100m although the primary function of the watch is designed for pilots. The sapphire crystal has a anti glare coating on both sides for zero sun reflecting with viewing dial while when flying at high altitudes.

This model comes in a few variants gold and steel and solid gold and was discontinued around 2005 for chronomat evolution which very similar but a few minor changes. A great value piece on the secondhand market for you buck in my opinion!
