Have not got a clue

You guys drive the "Ultimate Driving Machine" so I thought that you would know about good taste, style and quality. Judging by these posts it doesn't appear that you do when it comes to watches. Anybody that does know about Timepieces knows that the only brand of choice is Breitling. Check them out and count yourselves educated.

John, I've read your reviews/pages on Rolex's and Omegas...good stuff dude. I am not surprised to find you in this forum.

Side note: the F series Rolex Daytona has got my name written all over it...now all I need to do is come up with 7k.

Watches are like clothing ... all preference after the $50 dollar price mark. That being said, the Breitling is a very handsome watch. I just prefer the simpler designs offered by Rolex and Omega ... specifically the Seamaster and Submariners.

Breitlings are nice, but they're too heavy imo. Also, I think the face of the watches look too busy. It's all preference though, no need to question someone's taste...unless it's an exhaust from KAS.

Is this guy a troll?

Breitling has a very unique style and are reasonably well respected. But from an horological standpoint, the fact that they don't make any of their own movements hurts them. I could certainly pay a lot less than Breitling prices to find an oversized chronograph with an ETA movement.

Certainly nothing wrong with being loyal to a brand...just not to this point.

Thanks! Much appreciate.

If you can find an F series (I assume stainless) Daytona at retail, then beg, borrow, or steal to get the money. It's just so darn difficult to get from an authorized dealer....

for the amount of money that we are spending on watches its going to be all about preferance. ....nothing against them though.

i couldn't agree more. Breitlings have always looked too busy for me.

I love how that hack is catching $hit for his exhaust in a thread about watches! :rocks:

Please don't take it personal, but I could say the same thing about Rolex, execept the fact that they DO make their own movements hurts them.

There is nothing wrong with most ETA / Valjoux movements, and nothing more overpriced than a Rolex.

I have a 2000 series Tag Heuer exclusive quartz chronograph. Here's a stock photo...



I really love this watch. I've had it for about 4 or 5 years. It has lots of scratches on it, though. Still looks really sharp.
