Ordered My Cockpit B50 in September the week it was released in the US from my AD in Kansas City. Received it around 2 1/2 weeks later. Over all I have been very pleased with it.


WATER RESISTANCE: 100 m (330 ft)
BEZEL: Bidirectional, compass scale
CROWN: Non screw-locked, two gaskets, integrated push-piece
CRYSTAL: Cambered sapphire
DIAMETER: 46.00 mm
STRAP: Rubber
INTERHORN WIDTH: 24/20 mm
THICKNESS: 16,45 mm
WEIGHT (WITHOUT STRAP): 94.80 gr
MOVEMENT: SuperQuartz™, thermocompensated quartz electronic, analog and 12/24 hr LCD digital display, display backlighting, EOL indicator
CHRONOGRAPH: 1/100th second, max. 99hrs. 59min. 59sec. CountDown CountUp Clock, flight time chronograph, electronic tachometer, countdown, 2nd timezone, alarms
CALENDAR: Digital, perpetual
CASE: black titanium

Pros: Looks, weight, ability to park the arms (arms are parked in pics) and lock the crown so no accidental changing of the digital read out, visibility, I like the rechargeable battery vs having to have one replaced. It has a read out for percent battery used and in the time I have had it it has used about 25% and I have not recharged it yet so battery life seems reasonable. Really like the vibrating alarm option.
Cons: Crown is not as responsive as I would like. My Airwolf is the same way but it would be nice to have a 1:1 response with each turn.

I have been very happy with this watch so far. I have read other reviewers have had some issues but this has become the favorite of my three Breitlings. (Airwolf, Blackbird)

Congratulations on your buy. I have read about teething troubles, but fingers crossed your one stays the distance. How much do you like the black finish?

Thanks P51. I really like the finish. It is not as black as the blacksteel Blackbird but I think it looks good!

Take care wearing it. Does look very enticing indeed. Blue digital readout is very cool against the all dark background.

ImageImage. Hi there. I've had mine for about a month. Totally in love with it. Wears unbelievable well. Light but still has Gravitas. I've had no issues and really enjoy the watch.
