Has to be the Blackbird or Avenger Seawolf for me, the rest leave me a little cold. Should be able to afford a holiday this year after all................

My impression is the only watch released to date which i find interesting is the one "leaked" weeks ago - the Chronomat 44 GMT.

I really like the Chronomat 44 GMT and the Chronomat GMT Limited. Both great looking watches!

Yup have to agree the GMT 44 is the only one that interests me there.

I am actually really excited about the TO 1461. Even though it lacks the in-house, the Transocean case and styling is just spot on.

T/O 1461. Love it. The T/O Unitime was a HUGE let down.

The Transocean Unitime sounds great from a technology perspective but I just can't get past that dial.

You're not alone there! A potentially great watch totally ruined by a hideous dial.

Does anyone else mourn the passing of the 'small' Breitlings? I mean, it's all relative, and lings have always been distinctively chunky - but if you look at the entry-level Colts, they were 38mm in the early noughties, then went to 41mm in the late noughties, and are now 44mm. That's quite a rate of increase, and surely deters quite a few of the small-to-average wristed?

It's such a shame, vintage Unitime's had such a great dial and the new Transocean chrono is very classic. But the new combination, not so much.
