It'll probably happen since I just bought the Superocean, they would come out with something that I could like even more.

can't comment on specific watches, but Georges HAS announced that there will be "Special Collectors Watches", so reason to stay tuned if you like the Vintage Icons...

sadly they've cut that pic of the Lucies in two, so let me add the original - rather like these watches, I admit ;); photography by Franz Venzin.

In that case, please buy a few more!

Thanks for providing what info you can. These latest releases are pulling me back into the brand. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

well.... what I CAN say is that you shouldn't worry re a "date at 4:30" when we talk about the Collectors Watches that didn't originally have that - they will be as close to the originals as possible, even if that requires some major efforts. and that's very, very close ;)

You're damn right I will be! :thumbsup:

I've got to say I'm really REALLY excited by the idea of these Collectors Watches. There are so many vintage pieces I'd love see get a modern makeover, so these could be amazing times for Breitling fans!

To be honest I can foresee that my one single concern is likely to be size as I can't seem to get on with anything below 41mm. But that aside I can only see positives here.

I hope they don't take away the readability (as in lumed arabics and stick markers) like they did on the Premier Chronogragh. My guess is they will make it a dress watch with in-house movevment, thick case, and charge a lot more for it. We'll see how close they stick to the originals.

I am really excited to see these collectors edition watches! I'm another person who very much appreciates the Vintage Market and the look of the watches, but I am not well versed enough to feel comfortable pursuing one or even owning one. I would love to have a modern iteration of one of the many beautiful vintage Breitling. Can't wait to see some of these!

Oh WOW! Now that’s something I can get excited about!

I can honestly say it’s been ages since I have anticipated any Breitling release. This is refreshing.

My wild guess: near exact reedition limited editions with period correct NOS movements. :)
