Do they consider it LE only because of the transparent caseback and the red hands ?

Also, is the LE available only on full gold ?

Quite like the TO, but not sure that blue would be my choice of colour there.

am I the only one that thinks that red tip is 100% not attractive on the GMT?

No, you are not the only one, there are at least two of us ;-)
I can not warm up to the "arrow tip" style hands either.
That is also what is holding me back from getting the Superocean Heritage and the Omega Planet Ocean :-(
Love the watches but not the hands.

And the red 'Automatic' on the dial. With that bezel though the details are irrelevant for me.

Make that three of us. To be fair I don't mind it on the all steel models, but it looks totally out of place on the TT and all gold versions.

As an aside I saw the all brushed LE version of the GMT the other day and it's definitely the best I've yet seen of that model.

The blue TO isn't doing it for me TBH. The black dial/silver subdial LE version of the TO is the reference AFAIC.

I'm looking for a blue dial watch. That TO is pretty sharp. If it's the same blue as the Navi Blue Sky, then I might be in...

Next year that is. :D

I like the blue Navi but it just doesn't seem to work on the TO. Or maybe it's just not a good photo -- it wouldn't be the first time a manufacturer's photo portrayed one of their watches poorly.

well, frankly do not like the blue dial TOC at all, though a lot more than what you see below, according to Club Breitling Israel this is an OEM Breitling BlingTOC: :wowzers

That Bling TOC is a crime against watch kind.
End of discussion.

Come on Wes, just say it - it's a crime against nature. I think it is punishable in at least 47 states.
