No love for transocean moon phase?

I took a break from Rolex purchasing lately. A friend traded me this. I have to say itís a very handsome watch. Iíve been wearing it for the last few weeks.



I blame it on the autoconnect.

That's not just a moon phase, but a full calendar (or possibly annual calendar) and chronograph too. Certainly an interesting watch.

I had one of the first limited edition reverse-panda Transoceans soon after they came out, and while I kept it for a few years, for some reason I got bored with it quite quickly. Absolutely nothing wrong with the watch, but was just a little too...well, not sure really, but perhaps clinical - canít really think of the right word.



Anyway, in the end I think I might have preferred a black dialled Grand Premier which seems a lot less clinical.

Thanks All. I guess it does have annual calendar. Itís my first complication watch (Rolex doesnít make one ) so pardon my ignorance. I was told I only need to reset every leap year.


I blame it on the autoconnect.

Funny u should say that. When I first saw it, I thought a nice croc strap would compliment it nicely. But this is an amazing mesh bracelet. Much better than even the omega one. Look how thick it is. I really love the overall quality of this watch.

Those mesh bracelets are super comfortable. They almost feel like a strap.

I always thought Breitling dials were too busy, even cluttered. Then I came across the Transocean Chronograph and even though you wouldn't call it a simple dial, it struck me as being well laid our and aesthetically pleasing. I went with the rose gold bezel and brown dial. And you're right, the mesh bracelet is very comfortable. I've ordered a brown alligator strap from Camille Fournet, though, just to be able to change it up. (Don't know why the image comes up sideways.)

That's a stunner. I've actually been eyeing this one recently with plans on pulling the trigger. Love seeing the pics.
