I love my Breitling but do not see many posts about them - what are people thoughts about them? How do they compare vs. Rolex, Tag, Tudor, etc?

They’re nice for sure, but besides the size, a lot of them push it too far with the naval/aviation theme, for my taste at least. I am not a pilot or a navigator and I would feel weird wearing some of these models.

Breitling makes very nice watches, but mostly too big for my dainty wrists. As a kid I always wanted a Breitling, so once I’ve scratched all my other watch-related itches I’m sure I’ll get one.

Most of their watches are big and thick, which is mostly out of style at the moment. 5-10 years ago they were all the rage.
Also Breitling was kind of late to the "in house" movement trend and they had watches with ETA based movements selling for the same as others with in house movements.
Breitlings are nice, but for the price point they normally sell for there are many watches I'd prefer. I like their new B01 Chrono, but for $8400 I'd take a Portugueser or El Primero every time.

big, niche style (pilots, etc), expensive for what you get. all a matter of personal taste but they really don’t speak to me at all.

People don't post gold bars but they are still valuable. I rock a breitling anyday before a Rolex

I have a Bentley 6.75 and I just bought my wife a Breitling. It’s my dressier watch but when I wear it it’s noticed for sure. Beautiful and awesome watches.

Happen to be wearing my Superocean II chrono today. Great brand, I personally like the designs/style. But resale is terrible.
