I understand it's a nice watch...but why would it need to be water resistant to 5,000 feet. No human can be down that far without a submersible, and if you're not in one, you're not coming back up to see if it worked.
water resistance is measured in terms of "equivalent" depth pressure. in presence of any motion actual water resistance is much smaller
+1 to who wears watch and who pays 1700 for watch, etc etc...social status symbol in China hilarious!! Sir, I would love to help you, but that watch looks made in china fake rolex or whatever extremely expensive watches are!
Breitling is getting away from their classic pilot-oriented designs...it's hurting their brand, imho. That Superocean actually looks pretty good in person, but for a Breitling, it's out of place.
you're not kidding. you could post "Free week-long vacation with Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansen on a 120 foot yacht with the purchase of any package of Skittles from 7-11. Use coupon code THREESOME to get half off of the Skittles."
you know what you're going to get? TD for not posting YMMV. TD for not being able to replicate the deal in Somalia or at Circle K. TD for listing in the hot deals forum instead of the coupon forum. TD b/c someone posted the same deal 22 years ago.
Tag's 1887 just won the best dress watch for 2012 for a Swiss magazine. Tag is also moving to some serious in-house caliber movements from 2013. I bought my Carrera 3 weeks ago (and love it btw) and my AD said Tag may be using solid casebacks for watches using ETA based movements. This means the new Carrera based on Caliber 16 (v7750) may have a solid caseback moving forward. All watches using 100% in-house movements will be the ones using sapphire clear casebacks.
Prior to buying the Carrera, I also considered a used Rolex (from the AD), Breitling SuperOcean (black dial) and Longines.
I went for the Carrera simply cos I've owned v7750 watches in the past and have very good lucky with this movement and the fact I love chrono dials. The Carrera was also more dressier. BTW, Breitling also uses base v7750 just like Tag (and other companies) but do their own custom work on it.
Not dishing Breitling but I find the Tag line more appealing (like another poster said...to each his own).
On topic, this is a great price for a Breitling. Bummer the yellow accents won't make it 'office-friendly'.
As always, keep in mind online vendors are NOT authorized dealers so Breitling may not honor the warranty directly (guess Jonashop will handle warranty in-house or use outsourced Jewellery places like Amazon does).
Was curious about your post so I Googled "tag heuer 1887" for images. Holy. Cow. That timepiece is GORGEOUS.
I hadn't worn a watch since high school - even so, I was pretty picky about which ones I saw that made me want to wear one again. Then a couple of years ago my wife bought me a SeaMaster that I fell in love with. Since then, I've always stopped to admire any watches I see, but rarely ever see any that make my heart flutter (maybe 2-3). And now this... dear god this is the only item going on any wish list I have until I get it.
I see the Montbrilliant Datoras can be bought "New" from several online retailers at about 15-20 percent below MSRP (and likely without tax, which at that price level adds $300-600 to the total cost). At what pricepoint does it make sense to take a gamble and buy it from one of these unofficial retailers? Where are THEY getting the watches? I mean, you can only have so many middlemen. When I see a watch like this on Amazon, Amazon is very up-front in saying the watch is covered by THEIR warranty, and hot Breitling, for example. Does this really matter? Is there a good forum for learning about this stuff? Thanks!
