Now that you, the reader, think I have a bias towards Breilting (given that 3 of the last 4 posts have been about the company), I figured why not do another. I don't have a bias towards the company, so we can set that straight, but they are releasing a number of new watches now, while no one else is doing much of anything. Onto the watch itself. The Breitling Transocean 38 gives a nod to a different Breitling watch from 1958, a watch for (per an older Breitling ad): "Men who have faith in the mighty liners of the sky...". In my opinion, Breitling's product development team did a good job on many of the of the design attributes, except for the big date. I think the watch would look far better without the massive numbers smack in the middle of the dial. I invite you to disagree with me, but I think they would look far better if the date was smaller and at the 6 position on the dial. Onto technical information: the watch has a 38mm case that is water resistant to 100m. This case shields the automatic Breitling caliber 16. This movement is, of course, certified by the COSC. You can view anything else (including different variations) on Breitling's website here.
