Breitling Datora

Picked this up a few weeks ago. Absolutely love it. The salmon dial is fantastic. It's got kind of Patek flavor to it. Complete calendar + chrono with a really pleasant action. The movement is beautiful to look at too.

Things went well. OP, you are correct. The Chrono action is fantastic. Like no other watch I have owned. Picked up on a business trip today. Pics to follow when I return.

Iím going to classify this as a watch guyís watch. Itís so nice and very unique.

Honeslty, maybe the best piece Breitling has made in years. Probably their best value in their entire lineup. I absolutely love this calendar chronograph.

I love that watch. I bought the Omega SMPO GMT in gold instead but in retrospect, should have gone with the Datora. Trade?

I think you made the best choiceÖ.
Iíve just been experiencing Problems with my datoraÖ the moon phase was not rotating properly and the chronograph would stop working randomly Ö
On the bright side , Iíve discovered how awesome Breitling customer service and care is . Iíve had the watch for well over the 30 day return policy and they have agreed to give me a full store credit ! (As long as I purchase something of equal or greater value.
I am thinking of trading the datora for the rose gold heritage superocean ,with credit left over for my husband to find something he likes ( heís eyeing up a superocean as well ).
