First Breitling, Satin Brushed Finish was the deciding factor!

Snagged this Chonomat Flyin Fish with a blue dial this week, love it! I was never a fan of Breitling because of the polished cases and bracelets. Love this limited version!

Excellent choice! My Chronomat 47gmt is brushed with some polished elements. I find myself staring at in my wrist all of the time

Looking good. Blue dial really pops. Sits nicely in the wrist, too. Enjoy.

Looks great. I am also a "brushed" fan. Or at least a brushed and polished look.

Sweet watch. I owned the B01 LE. It was brushed too. Sold it at a huge loss to fund other purchases. Do you find it wears like a 44mm or bigger?

Awesome. I've had a lot of Breitlings and kept only the Steelfish and a 90s Chronomat because the rest of them are scratch magnets. As soon as you get one scratch on a Super Avenger, people want $2,000 off your price if you sell.
