B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition

What are your thoughts on this piece? I am considering purchasing but there does not seem to be a lot of enthusiasm on this board or others for this watch.

A nice looking watch with a trendy Green dial. I like it but would see myself getting a Royal Oak Offshore with that money. Totally subjective but a lovely piece, nonetheless.

I think that watch looks truly fantastic, even though I am not normally a fan of green dial or green bezel watches.

It isnít a chronograph, unless you want to record less than a minute's duration.

Yea, I find if I have to think that long, I'm not totally committed and I pass.

Wise move in my opinion. Anything you decided was for a reason and you'll be able to find something else that's right for you.

I don't need another watch but just because of my uncertainty -- decided against it. I mean watches I have purchased on a whim usually end up selling.

Good move on passing. When in doubt have no doubt, don't.

I've experienced that in the past as well, getting something just for the sake of doing so without taking enough time to decide.

As collectors it's imperative each (potential) new piece really speaks to us and is determined over time.

I am not sure you will see these at a discount as they are limited to 25.. but time will tell and I was. told only 5 released to the USA. Not sure if that is 5/25 or 5 from the first set released

B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition

Gorgeous watch. As others have mentioned, you can get a lot from other brands at that price point. In a similar situation, I think the Datora looks fantastic in rose gold and white dial but itís more than I paid for my Aquanaut. Unless you love it on your wrist, Iíd put you money elsewhere.
