    I've personally never been a fan of Breitling's usually busy dials, but I kinda like the look of these recent releases:

    Truth in advertising, I guess :laugh:

    You would think they would at least have the most basic level of quality control.. Even for a fake factory.

    The only issues I have with it are the size (43mm) and the position of the date window (would've preferred it closer to the dial's edge). Otherwise a nice, clean design IMO.

    Agree on the position of the date window on the Transocean.

    I just put in an order for the Polar Explorer II. Should be here in a week. I'll snap a pic of my collection.

    I really like the Breitling Transocean. The size is perfect, but agree the date could be a little closer to the edge to balance the dial a bit.

    Here's what I have on today.

    This is a shot in the dark, but what the hell...

    I saw a Patek with this similar styling a few years ago (before I really became a WIS) in a display at a Torneau... I didn't handle it, simply admired it for a minute.

    It looked similar to this in terms of the most basic points - black leather band, white dial, black hands and markers...

    The rest I don't remember, but seeing this watch reminded me of that watch, which looked similar to it but perhaps a bit more simple.

    Any ideas? I know, I didn't give much detail, but...

    Hey, watch-geeks! Can anyone tell me where to have an unusual watch identified, and get tips on restoration? Is there a thread here for either?
