I'm thinning out the herd and letting one of these go, They are both great watches. I am not a diver, just curious to see which most would part with and why? I'm guessing it will come down to looks more than anything..

IWC would go !! Breitling is just too much of a stunner.

Not fond of either, but I like the lume on the IWC. Also I like the bezel. The Breitling bezel sort of reminds me of the Submariner.

Man that's a hard one for me! I love both those watches. The IWC to me seems more casual toolish where the ling is dressy diver. But if I had to choose one I guess it would be the Ling, being that I love the style and I think I wouldn't get tired looking at it.

Not usually a lover of anything Breitling and I have a definite weakness for IWC but that Superocean is really singing to me, so that'll be my choice. I would think that the IWC will hold onto it's value better over time though. Personally I'd keep them both, maybe squirrel the one you like least away for a month or two then bring it out again and hey presto, you love it again. That has happened to me before and I am very glad I did. I would love to see that Breitling on a vintage brown leather strap. Phwoar!

Typically, I'm a bigger fan of IWC. But in this case, the Breitling is simply stunning and I wouldn't hesitate to send the IWC packing.

Dump that IWC. They have much better looking watches in their line. Keep the Superocean. It's an amazing beauty. Pure class, unlike some of Breitling's other offerings.

If the IWC had a bracelet, this would be a hard choice, but with the rubber strap - how can it compete with the Breitling?

:-d Same here, generally the only statement a Breitling ever makes is "looks at me, I'ze be styl'n"....................everyone except this one - the IWC would have to go.

Also the Breitling seems a bit more versitile, more of a "desk diver" if you will.

Of the two I would keep the Breitling based on looks. The IWC strikes me as out of step with the IWC reputation for fine styling.

I don't care for Breitling... but the Super Ocean Heritage is beautiful. I'd keep it and let the IWC go to a new home.

Keep the IWC.
I would not have bought the B in the first place, it is too generic of a look that Rolex owns...
