Breitling Datora

Picked this up a few weeks ago. Absolutely love it. The salmon dial is fantastic. It's got kind of Patek flavor to it. Complete calendar + chrono with a really pleasant action. The movement is beautiful to look at too.

Things went well. OP, you are correct. The Chrono action is fantastic. Like no other watch I have owned. Picked up on a business trip today. Pics to follow when I return.

Iím going to classify this as a watch guyís watch. Itís so nice and very unique.

Absolutely superb. Congratulations and wear in great health. The only new release that’s taken my eye recently.

Honeslty, maybe the best piece Breitling has made in years. Probably their best value in their entire lineup. I absolutely love this calendar chronograph.

Looks great, how do you find the thickness?

It's quite manageable, It wears very well on my wrist anyway.

I love that watch. I bought the Omega SMPO GMT in gold instead but in retrospect, should have gone with the Datora. Trade? :lol:

I think you made the best choiceÖ.
Iíve just been experiencing Problems with my datoraÖ the moon phase was not rotating properly and the chronograph would stop working randomly Ö
On the bright side , Iíve discovered how awesome Breitling customer service and care is . Iíve had the watch for well over the 30 day return policy and they have agreed to give me a full store credit ! (As long as I purchase something of equal or greater value.
I am thinking of trading the datora for the rose gold heritage superocean ,with credit left over for my husband to find something he likes ( heís eyeing up a superocean as well ).

Golfpaul66 15 September 2021 01:46 AM

Thanks for the heads-up!

Thatís a real shame.
