Oh wow, I really like this watch as well. The connection to that aircraft, the movement decoration, and dial are striking. I prefer it on the bracelet, a fantastic piece.

It’s nice.

And I believe you and I are the only two members to have either owned or piloted a 747.

Paul is still in the simulator but we have hope for him.

Haven’t seen a single post or video of this watch, besides the official stuff from Breitling. A flop or just not shipped?

I think its fine for those who are fans. If they allocated most to airport ADs and Seattle, Hong Kong, Frankfurt etc they'd sell out in quick fashion.

I saw one in person at the boutique, and can happily call myself a Navitimer owner now! During my time there, the sales associates received a few phone calls inquiring about the piece, so I'd say that there's quite a bit of interest!

That’s good. I think Breitling is way underappreciated. If you order via their site you get a gift too.

The boutique gifted me an alligator strap and some baseball caps. They did ask for some extra cash for a deployment clasp instead of tang buckle.
