    Flyback chronograph function? Check!
    Flieger? Check!
    Brand pedigree? BIG CHECK!
    I have something else in mind - Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute. It has its heritage and it has something not common with most watches - a 24-hour dial.

    That dial is crazy!

    Very busy but also very legible at the same time?

    Never thought it's possible until now.

    Aside from the fly back chrono, it also has the distinctive circular slide rule that defines the Navitimer line of watches. Breitling designed it for space flight and the 24-hour dial made sense as there is no AM or PM in space.

    at those prices, telling the time is not the raison de etre.
    it's a love affair with the watch.

    Agree doc.

    The mechanical movement and the sciences and processes behind it, the face, the dials, the history, the lineage- they're so s3xy, enchanting and mesmerizing.... It's unquestionably a passionate love affair....

    Marketing has been very successful in creating needs and probably in this case, love....

    also,
    the mechanical watch is testament to man's ingenuity and technological advancement and etc etc.
    it's akin to the barong or tuxedo displayed by the tailor in his escaparate.
