I actually agree with Mafoofan, personally I wouldn't opt for either of those two however if my arm was twisted I would go Omega simply because I dislike virtually everything Breitling does from a style perspective, then again that is subjective. However the IWC 7 day port or the Speedy pro are much nicer coices IMHO. Though for the IWC I prefer the white blue dial like this: (Not my pic) Not at all a fan of that Rolex GMT...a classic but never liked the multi...

I can respect that, I have a Diver watch also with a Rolex Sub and there are times when I find it a bit of a waste given that I don't dive...I loved the cream/blue of the Omega but always toy with...

LOL, no....just not usually a color I am drawn to, though I do think it would go well with my white blue Omega aqua terra (like anyone but me would notice)
it is funny/interesting how divided some of the opinions are, for a few it is as if the purple is reserved for women or not even an option even though I am guessing the company made these pieces for men as I don't see too many women using key wallets. As for the quality, I figure as much given the price (think after conversion this is only 130) which puts it on par with Coach here in the US, another fashion label

Thanks all, my boring conservative side prefers the tan though I hate the gold but my want to be ever so present fun side feels the purple looks fresh...oh well I am not rushing out to get it so I have time to beat this decision to death
So I emailed them and the hardware on the birdle is in fact gold colored...I tried that link you sent but couldn't see the key wallet.
So personally I think if I had more money to spend on watches they might be a consideration but as they stand I don't see one being on my radar... They are just too casual and not conservative enough...I usually pair them up with Panerai, great for a nice fun watch, but not as go everywhere do anything from a looks standpoint as a classic Omega or a Rolex. Plus I like companies that have been around a while, whereas B&R is somewhat new on the scene. And for the...
So I have a key wallet now made by a company called Bosca, it is ok but I want something nicer, recently I saw a mention of this company and am considering them as I am a sucker for the Royal Warrant seal... These are the two I like, the former specifically because it uses silver accents as I am not a brass fan... http://img1.ettinger.co.uk/includes/...cts/72_1_2.jpg Or http://img1.ettinger.co.uk/includes/...cts/24_1_3.jpg Or other suggestions appreciated...
