The Breitling Transocean Chronograph Limited Edition

Post by docrwm on Wed 12 Jan 2011, 11:33 am




The brand with the winged B is introducing the Transocean Chronograph Limited special series, fitted with the manufacture’s in-house Caliber 01 automatic chronograph movement. The new model pays tribute to a landmark timepiece from the brand’s history, the original Transocean, introduced in 1958. Find more information, including pricing and wallpaper, inside WatchTime.

Yes, seems Breitling is going less bling and more classic these days. This one and their SuperOcean reissue are really nice IMHO.

A beautiful watch. A similar alternative with likely less sticker shock would be the Mido Commander:

Being as the Trans-Atlantic starts at around $7600....the Mido looks phenominal! But I really want that Breitling...I can't help it!!!

I'm a Mido fan, own 3, but I'm with Duff on this one - I really like the Breitling a lot more. Not +$6000 more but it is nicer.

Stunning! What size is that Breitling? The Breitling or the black enamel dial Omega Speedmaster?

The only thing I don't like about this watch...other than the price...is the LE number being on the side of the case. Not sure why they chose to put it there but it looks a little gaudy in my opinion.
