I had this watch, one of the first luxury brand ones I ever had, dial was lovely in the sun and the bracelet was very nice and comfy, excellent watch for the price.

Indeed it is. It's my all-time favorite diver watch along with 16610.

The Superocean Steelfish is fantastic. It was my second Breitling and second real luxury watch. This was maybe ten years ago, when I knew a lot less than I do now. That watch was fantastic, and surprisingly, probably one of the most accurate watches I have ever owned, a solid +/- 2 s/day. Aesthetically, Breitling hit it out of the park, an excellent dive watch with a unique functional design, and nearly completely devoid of any Sub design queues. Just a fantastic watch.

Still, occasionally regret trading mine.

Thanks man. Yeah this old style Fish is awesome.

That new one (replacement of this model) never quite grabbed me for whatever reason. Cheers.

I've had my eye on this watch for a while because of that blue dial. I also like Breitlings for the most part.

Well written. Thanks for sharing. Its a great watch indeed. I loved to old ones in Yellow and Orange for 1500 Meters depth. If I remember correctly they were called steelfish.

Yes indeed. The old SuperOcean came with yellow and orange dials. I'm not sure if they were called SteelFish though. But in the SuperOcean line definitely.

Seawold also came with those dial colors I think.

Cheers.
