Breitling enables true watch enthusiasts to establish a wide-ranging collection just within the Breitling line. Once you have purchased your first Breitling, it is hard to stop! I know that I am unable to pick just one favorite, and my favorite models are changing all the time. It is funny talking with other Breitling addicts like myself to see how they first got into the Breitling brand.
One of my friends first learned about Breitling on his honeymoon in Belize. While there, he walked into a jeweler and the signature yellow Breitling display immediately caught his eye. Once he starting checking their watches out, he was hooked. Upon returning to the States, he started researching all of the Breitling models on the company website and the various Internet forums.
After weighing his options for a while, he ultimately purchased a blue dial Colt GMT on a stainless steel Pro II bracelet. He loves the watch and it is extremely special to him as it is the first piece in his Breitling collection. Like many other Breitling enthusiasts, his first Breitling purchase was not his last. After exploring many more options, he eventually picked up a Chronomat with a graphite dial to complement his Colt GMT, and is now looking to add another Breitling to his collection. Any suggestions?
There are so many different ways one can first learn about the Breitling brand. For instance, one of my buddies who knows that I am a watch junkie asked me which watch Wayne Gretzky was wearing in a recent news conference because he loved the look of it so much. It was a Breitling of course, and my friend picked up a SuperOcean Heritage Chronograph less than a week later…
How did you first get into Breitling? And how has your Breitling collection evolved?
