Hi All

Well it's arrived! My first Breitling.

I first saw the Super Ocean Heritage at a small corner store in Bilbao. I admired it from the window and pointed it out to my wife.

I had no intention of going into the store but my wife urged me to do so, to have a bit of holiday fun and "just try it on". Oh my god! - it was love at first sight... It was big, black and beautiful (on rubber). All of a sudden my Omega Seamaster Professional 300m seemed just a tad dreary.

I wanted that watch so bad but we were on a family holiday and the budget was tight.

Ten months later I've taken delivery of the Chrono version and I LOVE IT! As far as I can tell it's the first one in Australia through the AD network. They're rare down here..

OK so here's a wrist shot. I have more to upload and will do so soon. I thought I was an OK photographer but capturing the sheer beauty of this watch is proving hard, so apologies if the photos seem a little mundane.

cheers,
Rohan

Another wrist shot. I liked the reflections of the glass and dial on this one.



This side shot shows that the mesh strap is quite thick. Total weight of watch including mesh band is 207 grams.

I seem to have screwed up the image uploads. I'm too tired to fix it now but I promise to upload some photos tomorrow.

cheers,
Rohan

Wrist size?

Congrats on your watch, wear it in good health! What's your wrist size? (Mine is 6.75" and I think this would be way too large for me, both wearing and looking at...)

Didn't even know those were out yet.
Fantastic looking!
My wrist is about 6.25 and I had a 46mm SOH and it looked great.

Watch looks great on you! Congrats on your purchase! I'm waiting for my first B to arrive from my AD. I ordered a Datora (Steel with Black dial). I was looking at the SOH Chrono as well, but it's a little big for my wrist. Your pics look great!

Thanks,

Mike

Thanks very much for uploading my photos Pindu. I feel like a goose but I'm grateful.

And thanks to everyone for the positive comments.

Ummm.. My wrist size is about 20 cm or a smidge under 8 inches. The band has all links in place, however, it's clipped within the buckle on the second smallest setting and has enough room to move around as I don't like a tight fit.

I find the watch quite comfortable to wear although I'm still adjusting to the feel of the mesh which is occasionally grabbing wrist hair. I have a black rubber ocean racer (with deployant) still to come but it's on back order so I don't have an ETA.

cheers,
Rohan

Lov it, I have the Blue SOH on rubber and its has been my favorite since the day it arrived. I have been thinking a lot about the mesh but they are looking for AUD 1200.00 for the stap and i am not that sure i am going to like it. I might get a Jurgen mesh to see if it works for me.

I am at Sydney too and I know how the prices are. Why don't you go through the an AD in the States? I did :-!

I wasn't sure of the mesh but once I tried it I was sold. The mesh really makes the watch.

I have the brown SOH at the moment but it's getting swapped for the black.
