They do a steel gold version with a ceramic bezel and the enhancements came out in 09 the steel version is always last to appear
I think they have added numbers to the ref no ie 16610 is now 116610 c .
My wife bought herself a Breitling starliner approx 18 months ago we got 25% off list tbh it isnt that great ,she likes it so thats all that matters,she has a ladies 18k yachtmaster that hasnt been worn since a far superior piece .
I would look at Omega as a daily wearer/beater there are some nice pieces and affordable as well.
I will try and get over and look at it this afternoon.
