This came in the post today to check out. Initial fear was size, it's 36mm so normally wearing a 183, 5001 Portuguese or Helson Bronze Shark diver - figured it could look a little strange. When first unboxed, first impression was, its tiny but after an hours wear I seem to have got used to it. Would be a nice dress watch I thought and it scratches a vintage itch (1960) and nice to have a bit of variety right? I don't normally go for bling bling breitling but thought this was a but different.

What do you reckon guys? Yay or nay?

Nice watch! I can see why you have to get use to the size, but it looks really classy!

Enjoy it!
