Breitling Colt GMT

The new Breitling Colt GMT... I think it was launched last June. Anyway, I tried on the black dial today... at approx RM5700 after discount, this is among the best buys for a high quality automatic GMT. The version with the very cool steel bracelet can be seen HERE. Can you see the slanted links? Very cool.

Been reading a few reviews on the watch and owners seem to agree that the watch is definitely a better buy than the Rolex GMT Master II or the Explorer II due to it being more user friendly and the watch definitely feels like it has better build quality (it's a really hefty piece of steel 500m rated!). I cannot disagree. You can read more owner impressions of the lovely watch at WatchUSeek.

If you want one, you better be quick. This new model and the new Superocean Steelfish (I highlighted it HERE) are selling like hotcakes in the US and Europe (and in some places, you have to be put on waiting list).
