    Default Just saw the new Breitling Superocean--Rubber or SS Strap?? Any idea's??

    Hello I just saw the new Breitling Superocean and I have fallen in love with it..lol Just not sure what one to get. I know its a personal preference but I am stuck, SS or rubber strap??. I have a few watches but no Breitlings yet and I would love to add one to the collection. Any idea's, or feed back would help...

    A post in the regular watch section and not the reviews might get more hits

    I picked up the SS/black version as Christmas gift to myself…love the rubberized bezel. The red one seems to be more popular here in Tokyo.

    I just picked up the SS version as a present to myself - I love it. Can't really go wrong with any choice - it's all personal preference.

    Get the SS bracelet then if you want you can get different bands as you go. That SS bracelet will never be as cheap as it is from the factory.

    Not trying to "Thread Jack"…have you seen the new Transocean?

    If you can afford it, this is the watch you should choose. Brand new model and Breitling's own movement the 01. I have many watches and the 01 IS THE BEST MOVEMENT I own, have had or used before. Right now my B01 is running +/- 1 at most in 30 days. I think it's really 0 but I think I might just be missing a second + or -. I've never had a watch run in such tolerance.

    The bracelet is very high polished and scratches can be seen very easily. I would recommend the rubber strap if you're actually using it for diving. If it is just being used for occasional wear, then go with the Pro 2.
