I was very confused by this thread, but now I get it, ghost tow, Guy driving this truck is probably wearing a Breitling. Now it’s all making sense!

I wouldn't count them out, they just got new ownership and leadership.

Breitling will find its way back. They changed their course, but at the end, they may come out stronger. I may not like all of their models equally right now, but my taste changes with experience too.

Breitling like many legacy watch brands have cycles when they are adjusting to the market. It’s a normal progression. Breitling has been around a long long time.

They have such a strong brand name and identity, esp as the Pilot's watch, that I don't think they will go under, but they need to be streamlined and more targeted, just like most brands will need to be now, to survive the future.

Please don't shut this down - the information on this forum is priceless. The panda dialed breitlings - navitimer 1 43mm and the transocean chronograph 43 - have recently caught my attention and this forum has provided a lot of insight, especially on the navitimer.

agreed, the Brand is re-finding its footing.. i dont know how i feel about removing the winged -B logo on in favor of the scripted B....but i do like the superocean heritage II with the ceramic bezel and multiple sizes..

a blue/blue SOHII is defintiely on my radar
