A definite improvement over the old gaudy Seamaster 300M. But much too similar to the Planet Ocean. Given the similar price it's hard to choose these new 300M over the wonderful Planet Ocean 8500. It just lacks that distinctive quality that gives it a personality. Perhaps bezels with different colours will do the trick?

The fauxtina is a fine idea, but like most posters mentioned, the polishing is just abit too much. Plus it picks up smudges and finger-prints too easily, and combining with the fauxtina it combines to make the watch look "dirty" instead of "vintage".

Whilst I appreciate the craftsmanship, the design, and even their direction for their target demographics, I cannot stand behind the way this watch fits on the wrist. Those gaps beneath the lugs....not good. In conjunction with what other had said about the plastic-look to the watch, it further makes the watch looks like something you pick up from a booth in the mall.

Why is everyone so jumpy over the size increase? We are talking about Breitling afterall right? The 40mm Navitimer is an exception rather than the norm in terms of size for this brand. Also 46mm is treading old ground for the Navitimer anyway: Navitimer World anyone?

I may be extremely alone with this sentiment, but here goes: I don't think that any Rolex Submariner-style watches looks good with a leather strap. Perhaps it is due to the prevalence of them on metal bracelets and NATO straps, the sight of one of them on a leather strap always makes me raise my eyebrow, and not in a good way. I have yet to see a subby/leather combination that truly works. 


The Black Bay is a very fine watch....on the metal bracelet. Pairing it with a leather strap seems very mismatched. This is all IMHO of course. 


For that matter the Omega Seamaster 300m (especially the blue bezel) and Planet Ocean aren't the best choices for leather straps either.
