Congratulations. It’s a great looking piece. I really like the newer Aerospace (the one with the hour numbers around the dial) and didn’t pay much attention to the older ones as I found they were thin and looked dated, your wrist shot has completely changed my opinion. Enjoy it.

Thanks!
This model for me is the perfect compromise between old and new, kinda like the Rolex 14060m or the late five digits in general.
It has a real bracelet (SEL, well built), a more modern feel compared to the older models (bigger numbers, strong lume), but it comes in a smaller and slimmer package.
I like most of modern Breitling offerings, but their sizes just don’t work for me.
This one in a very thin (a plus for me :) ) 40mm is just perfect.

Had a little ice storm last night. There is just nothing good about winter imo, and it's not officially here for another month.

Held out for a while, but finally gave in Sunday evening and picked this one up. Nice to have a JLC back in the collection.

You’d better walk slowly in the rain though Brice, don’t underestimate dynamic pressure.

Congrats again Andrea, really looks great on your wrist. I agree with James, many of the older ones look dated, but not that one. Looks like a perfect fit.

This just came yesterday. After getting the above Aerospace, it was perfect, but it was just a bit too small for me. Knew I had to have one in the collection though. So, picked up one that is the perfect size for me. Loving it.

Looks great, makes me think I need to get a canvas.
Where’s yours from?

Definitely agree on this one. That is a good looking combo.

Yeah, canvas works really well on the Aerospace. This one was from RedRockStraps (moondust w/olive stitching). Not nearly as subtle and flexible (require much more break in) as ones from Art, nor are they of the quality of Art's. But, they are handmade canvas and your can order and customize them online. There aren't really that many options for canvas straps. It may take a while, but ask Art to make you a blue or grey canvas for that Aerospace and it would be awesome IMO.

Thanks Chris! Can't wait to try a few more combos, and some of my straps from Art will look great on this, but this one is definitely a worker.
