Six Blue Watches That Aren’t The Tiffany Blue Patek Philippe 5711

Have you ever ever felt such as you’ve developed Stockholm Syndrome over a particular watch? That is how I really feel as of late in regards to the ultra-aggressive, hyper-masculine aesthetic of sure Breitlings just like the Chronomat, Avenger, and Colt. For years and years, I by no means understood the attraction. I dismissed them as “for a unique kind of watch fanatic.” The rider tabs had been grotesque bumps interrupting the bezel design, and the over-the-top “flyboy” aesthetic was simply an excessive amount of. After which Breitling got here out with the 2020 replace, and all of it clicked. The rider tabs had been now cool to my eye; the onion crown felt acceptable and fewer like an abscess, and the rouleaux bracelet introduced a formidable fluidity to the whole design. I used to be, in a phrase, charmed. And the one which has continued to hang-out me occurs to function a reflective “Ice Blue” dial and a platinum bezel insert. Nonetheless, I would name it extra Teterboro than Tiffany. – Logan Baker
