2017 I'm taking a break, too many pieces have come and gone although it's all part of the journey. I have 3 pieces now and my plans for this year are to just enjoy them, and save my money!

Yeah I have 2 at the moment but looking to add a simple and dressy 3 hander, hence the contenders listed in my previous post. I can't handle ownership of more than 3 watches at any given time.

Hi All, just bought my first ever Breitling, a 2013 aerospace E 79362 with the blue dial.
I can't wait for it to arrive.

Omega Dark side of the moon or the Moonwatch Professional. Can't decide which.

If you want THE classic Speedie then the Moonwatch Professional is the way to go, but if you can't decide between that and the DSOTM, then I'd suggest having a look at the Grey Side of the Moon as well. You get all the scratch resistance of the Dark Side's ceramic (plus the 9300 movement, etc) in a package that's a more practical daily wearer (IMHO) as it looks a lot like metal. Worth a look if you're undecided! :thumbsup:

Huge difference in $$$ also between the Pro and Grey/Dark side!

Indeed, but WELL worth it in my opinion. A mate of mine has the GSotM and I have some serious watch-envy! :lol:

I have 0 Breitling in my collection at the moment, I've been totally consumed by Panerai, and more recently JLC. The Master Compressor Extreme Alarm is definitely on my short list, as well as a 47mm Chronomat LE. I like the fully brushed model with the red and black dial, and clear caseback

Wish I had know, just traded in a LNIB piece, I felt it wore a little too big on my wrist. Speaking of JLC how about the new 2017 Master Control chronograph or the current ceramic cased Master Compressor Chronograph!!! :drool: :drool: :drool:

I gotta say, that one is pretty darn awesome!

That watch reminds me a lot of my first "nice" watch -- a Clebar chronograph that was given to me as a present when I was in high school. Same style pushers, bi-compax -- and, best of all, same blue tach scale, which looks great against a silver dial. This one may be calling my name...
