    Does anyone know the connection between Breitling and Britix? Saw this watch on ebay and thought it looked pretty sharp, but i'm not sure what I would be getting. Any thoughts/opinions? Thanks DPD watch

    I have never heard of Britix, and as far as I know Breitling has produced all its watches under its own moniker. Yes, they have co-developed modules and movements with other brands, but I have not seen a co-branded Breitling (unlike Tiffany & Co. Rolex or AP Cartier)

    At one time Breitling had a "junior brand" (a la Tudor) called Merit. But this was at least 30 years ago.

    Breitling used to have three levels of watches. One was Britix, which was Breitling's third tier, entry level watch.
