Just wondering what people think of the Breitling for Bentley "Flying B".

http://www.breitlingforbentley.com/en/

I've just seen it on their web site and think it's gorgeous. Very different
set up with the hours shown in a display at 12 o'clock and the seconds in a seperate dial at the bottom.

I think this will be one that you either love or hate, - i love it!

Any owners, or prospective owners out there, with maybe a picture or two?

That style is called a "jump hour" - I like it too. But this particular Bentley model has a large skeleton minute hand designed to let you see the hour when the hand passes by. I've never been a fan of skeleton hands. I'd rather they tried to accomplish the same thing by making the minute hand solid, though narrower....

personally, i think it's a love/hate thing with the flying b. either you really love it or just out right hate the thing. to me, it looks too much like a jewelry watch. i have a bentley motors t. but, even the motors t, still looks like a breitling. the flying b looks nothing like a breitling. too much wasted space on the dial as well.
