This is kind of a surprise to even myself since I never thought I'd buy this watch until I saw it in person on a cruise last fall. I tried it on and immediately thought it was something I needed to own one day. I love how it doesn't feel like you're wearing a watch when it's on the wrist. I was pretty much set on getting it sometime but then my lovely wife said that I should get it for my birthday this month. One call to George and Govberg and the deal was done. It arrived today just in time for the weekend which I think is perfect since it's a great weekend watch. The pics aren't the best since the lack of natural light at night but maybe this weekend I'll get some better ones.

The lume is pretty nice.

That looks great, I love the legibility of the face on these and having tried one I can confirm it is like wearing practically nothing.

I had one for about two months until my 18 year old son saw it at a college visit...he has not taken it off since. I have had tons of Breitlings, mostly titanium, and they are generally comfortable, but this one wore perfectly. Ditto on it feeling like you do not even have it on...

It's a very nice looking watch but I'm not sure I would like the feeling of not having a watch on. I owned a 48mm titanium Breitling and got rid of it because of the lack of heft. I prefer a superavenger or the like. There is no way to forget you are wearing it.
