Chiplee,

I would also check out Bremont. I'm thinking of setting up a custom order with my squadron. Not sure the commitment requirement, but I hear the discounts are close to 50%. I'm kind of over Breitling, due to everyone (especially in the aviation world) having one.

I really want the Terra Nova



The Boeing is really sharp as well.



Check out examples from previous squadrons.

It's getting very difficult to get a Breitling group buy done. You used to get the watch for peanuts relative to retail but not anymore.

We didn't make 25, but when we got to 18 and I told them it was $50k or nothing they took it. We eventually added 2 more buyers and got to 20. The most recent just joined last week actually.

I scoured the earth for former members of the squadron, found like 70 because they all keep in touch, and we still barely made it. Keep in mind this is a reserve squadron where many of the former and current guys are senior airline/cargo pilots who should have no trouble swinging it, just pick up an extra trip or something right? Yeah, no. It's just not the deal it used to be so there aren't going to be a lot of Breitling group buys in the future I'm afraid. I'm interested to see what Aerospace EVO pricing will be in 2015.

Our buy is done, but good tip. We didn't consider Bremont; just Omega and Breitling.

I'd be interested in getting in on a Breitling group buy.

For the watch in my picture? All watches in any buy have to be for the same exact design, so it would have a Hornet and our squadron patch on the face as pictured. Buyers can all do a custom caseback in just about any config they want. Probably time to join if you want. PM if so.

We did the group buy about 5 or 6 years ago…here is my Aerospace with my Avenger Blacksteel…wish I had my M3 to take a picture with these! But you are right, it took us some time to get enough to do the group buy…we were able to finally do it because we didn't wait for a specific squadron and just did the TMS instead...

Saw the Bremont folks at Hook a few years ago…you are right, great watches…definitely have one of their watches on my bucket list!

I didn't realize there were so many Navy people on here. I am carrier bubba too, though backseat traps are a bit different. I got the Breitling Evo and its my favorite watch at the moment. It is comfortable and it looks great at 43mm. I have heard of some people sending their Bremonts back for different issues.

Here is a couple pics of my Cartier Roadster Chrono XL. I have a brown band and stainless band and not pictured is also a black leather band. I love the interchangeable bands. I've had my eye on a Hublot Classic Fusion for a while now too, not sure if I should mod my car or my wrist in the coming future.

Both beautiful. That's smart going TMS. I really don't see how a fleet squadron will get it done any other way at this point. I figured it would be a snap in the reserves where everyone already has their civilian career pretty well set, but we had half a dozen fall outs at the end and almost lost the whole deal. I was prepared to buy two or three to get it done, but I've heard of guys doing that before and being stuck for a very long time. In fact I know of a current squadron CO who acts like a used car salesman every time a new guy checks in; trying to get rid of his extra Breitlings, lol. I'm very happy we pulled it off and excited to get mine in a few months.

Thanks much…yours is going to be a good looking watch too…I have a rubber strap for mine too, to mix it up a little once in a while. The Aerospace is very comfortable and lightweight. I am also a fan of the accuracy…about every six months I have to adjust the time by a few seconds.
