My favorite Breitling associate, Freddie as I call him, showed me a ridiculously cool new watch the brand is coming out with that I had no idea about. As he and I were talking about the new limited edition pieces with the exhibition casebacks displaying the B01 movement, he asked me if I had seen pictures of the new Transocean.
The what!? I definitely had not seen the new Transocean 01 limited edition, but I am very happy that I now have! Thanks Freddie!
This watch is awesome. I am all about the Breitling chronograph pieces with the contrasting dial and subdials. This 43mm watch looks extremely sharp. The black dial features silver subs with a slightly off-color ring around them and showcases the date in between 4 and 5 o’clock. The model is powered by the new B01 movement of course.
The watch will be limited to 2,000 pieces worldwide in steel and 200 pieces worldwide in gold. It will be available in a black dial as well as a silver dial. The stainless steel head will retail for $6,700 and can be put on a variety of different straps, should one prefer to wear it on something aside from the stainless steel mesh bracelet.
I have to say I am a huge fan of all of the new 01 limited edition pieces Breitling is coming out with. I do not even know which one I would choose out of the four.
What do you guys think? If you could only have one, would you go with the Navitimer, the Chronomat, the Montbrillant or the Transocean?
