Gorgeous piece, indeed. Congrats, Dave.

I love this traditional bezel a lot. Entire piece is awesome!

Wear it in the best of health.

Congrats on your first B'ling. you make good watch choices Dave.

Enjoy
Now we know how Danny picks the colors of his straps. The dial is black.

Well colour me bad.....looked at the pics again and it looks blue to me. Guess I'm seeing the AR coating.

I guess I bent over and opened myself up for a DWC raping lol. Let her rip boys.

Thanks guys. :grin:

Yep, it is a black dial. With the double AR coating it has a slight blue tint to the crystal in some lighting conditions. That is why it looks blue in the photo.

Pic was shot with an iPhone. Then cropped, contrast enhanced and sharpened in Photoshop on my Mac.

Here's a pic with a little more color balancing for the black dial....

The dial itself has a slight texture to it. I also love the stick hour markers on this new Seawolf version. Lume is excellent too.

The Breitling deployant clasp looks pretty big in the photos I have seen.

When I had my Ploprof it came on Ploprof rubber dive strap with the ratcheting deployant buckle. That buckle was a work of engineering art but it was HUGE. I ended up swapping to an Isofrane which looked perfect on the Ploprof.

I really like the look of the Ocean Racer strap with the hole pattern. I am thinking of purchasing just the rubber strap and then adding a quality ratcheting deployant clasp from StrapCode. The clasp comes with a nice machined surface detailing.

Huge congratulations Demo. What a stunner ! :clap: Can almost feel the quality
right through the screen, and your cool pics !!! ..You can see that the quality
is something special with these, and Breitling in general. Probably has such
a nice weight to it, and the design is so well balanced it's not even funny.

Looks incredible on this strap as well. I hope you are really enjoying this !

The Ti Seawold has been one of my all time favorites watches I've owned. Wouldn't kick that one out of bed too, they really amped up the details on the ss versions.

Decided to purchase the Breitling Ocean Racer strap with deplayant clasp. Damn sweet addition to the watch. It now is the total package IMO.

Here's some eye candy of the new setup.

That's just flat-out stunning. The watch of course is first rate but that strap with it's deployment clasp is perfect for that watch at least.
