I am currently down a rabbit hole on Super Ocean A13340's. I've reached the end of the internet and have viewed every photo and Youtube review video I could find. Plus its a good reason for you to show yours off!

I would love to hear your thoughts on the watch and see some wrist shots relative to your wrist size...looking at black dial but any shots would be appreciated. :lingsrock:

Thanks!!!

My favourite watch, easy to wear and looks good on rubber, leather or a bracelet. Good size for my 7 inch wrist. Starting to appreciate in value.

IMO this watch is serious bang for the buck.

Big fan over here. I got mine for my 30th birthday, I just had my 40th this week. Fantastic watch, rock solid, and great strap and bracelet options. I actually randomly put it on the Ocean racer rubber strap this morning from the Pro II.

My favorite by far is the brown croc. Good luck finding yours!

INBOUND!!!!

Thanks for all the replies so far! I already have a BLUE DIVER PRO RUBBER STRAP - 20 MM Brushed stainless steel double tang-type buckle REF: 148S ordered from Breitling that will be here no doubt before the watch (from Japan).

Its coming on bracelet but I will put that up on eBay or maybe here? If anyone is interested...

Thats all for now and as they say....

See how you get on with it on the rubber before you sell the bracelet on, resale of a watch is often easier and more profitable with a bracelet. I kept my bracelet but have stuck with the Ocean Racer & folding clasp because it’s so comfortable and easily adjustable.

I hear ya...I did that with my Omega Speedmaster that I bought NIB in 2009. I have never worn it on the bracelet except for the day I got it. I kept it knowing I'd need to have it should I ever sell but a collection is complete without a Moon Watch so I'd never sell it. :shock: And obviously I wear my DJ 41 on it's Jubilee but there is something about me and Breitling bracelets...maybe from a previous life :lol: :lol: :lol: we just don't get along EXCEPT with my Blackbird A13350, that bracelet that I like. I feel like the watch might not make it long term for me as it seems a tad small and without that bracelet it'd be even smaller I think.

Also I am a "nut job" about clasps/deployant/buckles...call me MR. Tang. :mrgreen:

Anyway..good advise and worth a try...99% chance though it'll go on the chopping block!

Never had one of these rubs from Breitling...looking forward to it.

Your call, you’ll enjoy that watch however you wear it. Look forward to seeing the pics when you get it set up.

Wow, that was fast! Two weeks ago my wife said that as a birthday present she wanted to get me a rubber strap for my Navi so I could stop sweating through my leather straps when I fly, but I still haven't decided on which one to get! I haven't even figured out the tang vs deployment yet and you've already pulled the trigger on a new watch! Congrats!

If you’re putting a Navi on rubber, try the rubber mesh strap. It’s easily the most comfortable rubber strap you’re going to find. For $150 for the tang version, you can’t go wrong.

I've been trying to figure out the details of that and other rubber straps, but the pictures on Breitling.com aren't large enough to see it well enough. Is that an actual mesh construction, or does it just have the texture of a mesh on the outside? It appears to just be a faux mesh but I can't be certain. Is there a difference in comfort level between the mesh and other rubber designs?

I think it is definitely just molded rubber mesh design?
