I absolutely would bond with that watch in even less than a second! :-! I have owned a Chronomat Evolution with factory diamond bezel since 2007 and have really enjoyed owning and wearing the beautiful piece very often and with most any attire, dress or sport. As many here on the forum know, I was reluctant to consider a gent's watch with diamonds but quickly got over that silly paranoid attitude after seeing the piece on my wrist. IMO, no manufacturer does diamond accents as well as Breitling and your Evo is a perfect example of "brutal elegance" as far as I'm concerned.
As an aside, let me add that I admire you are obviously an adult and comfortable "in your own skin" meaning that stereotypes such as the graphic illustrated in a post below or commentary implying anything less than masculinity are meaningless in my view. I know that your wearing experience with your Evo will parallel mine. In eight years, I have only heard really nice positive compliments about the Evo. Take a look at some of my photos and I doubt if you'll find reason for anything less... ;-)
Congratulations on the fantastic acquisition and wear it in good health!! |> :-!
I think it a watch Ron could bond with in a second and I'm not that far behind.
One concern has come to light in your photos it could just be a trick of the camera and lighting but it appears a bezel retaining screw looks to be working loose. Observe the edge of the bezel 1-2min after 10... you can see the screw head with daylight beneath the head.
The diamonds would not be for me. This one has a lot of wrist presence. If you like it, rock it! Enjoy!
