I'm curious to see what other "aviation types" wear on their wrists. I have a nice Movado that I got for my first anniversary but with no sweeping second hand I was in the market for a cool pilot watch. I looked at the obvious - Citizen and Seiko, but thought these would be a "step down" from Movado. So my brother - with his Rolex - suggested Breitling. I now have a B-1.
The clincher for me was when I was taking a ground school class and was speaking to the instructor during a break. I was in the watch market at the time and asked him about his watch - a "standard" pilot watch in the same class as a Seiko. He was happy with it but his comment locked it for me. He had gone through a series of interviews for a job with an airline and was literally just waiting for the call to advise him that he'd been hired. When discussing his watch he said he liked it... "... but when I get the call I'm getting a B-1!" "I'm sorry, did you say a B-1?" I asked. "Yeah, it's a high-end watch from Breitling. Every pilot's dream watch." Obviously, that's one man's opinion but the way the dialog took shape was eerie, and at that moment I knew the B-1 was for me.
I'd love to hear comments from others.
