Nice, except for the price of course.

What is the intrinsic value of the watch, and how much extra one is paying simply for the brand name, which is indeed famous?

Is Massdrop a reliable vendor?

Sweet! Sucks the cap is 25. Do you think I can get another 25 using a different CC but same address?

The Breitling looks nice but not as nice as those in the links below (first two are quartz, and the other mechanical).

The quantity limit of 25 is a deal killer for me on the Breitling.

High end watches aren't for everyone. It comes down to craftsmanship which let's them stand apart. Is half of that cost paying for the branding and the name? Sure. But none the less it is a remarkable piece of machinery. The perceived value will vary from person to person, depending on disposable funds, sentimental, appreciation, among other factors. If all that considered the perceived watch value is over $2,600 then it makes sense for you to purchase. I just picked sup an Omega planet ocean, but would not spend the same amount for a briet because of those factors, not because it's any less quality.

Yes mass drop is is reliable.

It blocked the web site but you can give links to other websites (will use the links to see the watch pic not the price so don't worry)

It does but not the blue dial watch in this thread which ofcourse makes the world of difference between something that looks like any other watch and something that looks stunning

Looks nice but would have stood out even more if it had a blue sunray dial (see links below). What's with the turning knob/crown on the top left? What function does it serve?

Straying off topic just a bit, wow, THE SHINE ON THE BRACELET LOOKS GOOD on the Breitling. Do high-end watches do a better job of polishing the bracelet so it stands out? If so, even lower brands can copy this so why don't they?

If stamped warranty card = manufacturer's warranty (which what I think this implies), then no Ashford or Joma would equal these even $500 cheaper. The maintenance abd light repair on Breitling Chronos is typically around $800 so if this comes with Breitling warranty - it's the same as buying from Authorized Dealer. Whether this is indeed 2-year Breitling warranty or not remains to be seen.

As for the looks, to each their own. I had an older non-chrono SuperOcean Stillfish before and ended up selling it because I liked the Avenger Seawolf better. The blue dial on Breitling is out of this world but in my opinion the watch in OP has too busy dial.

Yeah the blue watch isn't my style. I didn't want it to stand out too much haha. The other crown is a helium (He) valve. It's used for deep deep scuba diving to let it depressure . Stuff I'll never dive to the depths to do.
