Wow, what a wonderful choice. Little bit more size with the Breguet Transatlantique and the rose gold are a couple of pluses. The Breguet quality and finish is incredible. Don’t know enough about the Breguet movement, and I assume this is a Rolex cal 4130 and not the Zenith. Certainly a smaller market for resale with the Breguet. With a Rolex you have an appreciating commodity, but are you marrying for money or love?

I don’t know, too hard……. fading……fading.

Is resale important to you? If yes, I'd go with the Daytona. If it's purely looks you're after, then the Breguet.

Breguet makes some amazing pieces and the Rose Gold Type XXI is a beautiful example of that. Last week, I had dinner with a friend who just bought one and I have to say that I am quite impressed with it. However, if you put it up against a Rose Daytona, I would have to go Daytona all the way!

Breguet Transatlantiqué is the better choice with leather strap, while Daytona goes well with bracelet.

The funny thing is I have 5 rolex already ( sub, exp I, DSSD, wg datejust, and YG Cellini danaos) that why I'm leaning toward something new, but on the other Hand DAYTONA!!!
Plus I wanted to have a gold watch this time since I never had one except the Cellini but that was an inheritance from grandpa so I don't wear it. What do guys thing, which gold watch for my 30th bday!!!
