    I'm leaning towards the Breitling, was wondering if anyone has had experience with them.

    I would buy the omega no question. The design is more timeless and it will have much better night luminosity than the others. Are you sure you want the chronograph? Also, if you like the design of the breitling, you can find a similar design and the same functionality of the slide rule in a citizen http://www.superchrono.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=478

    On the Breitling, you are looking at a slide rule and although I've never used one, they supposedly can be used to calculate speed, fuel consumption, etc. useful to aviators and others.

    The Tag can be used to calculate speed with the tachymeter.

    Honestly I'm not going to use any of it, its mainly for the looks. I'm not a pilot nor a diver so most of the features are kinda pointless to me. The Tag has always been my dream watch but after seeing the Breitling in person compared to the Tag it makes it look like a wimpy watch lol. The Omega looks like a great watch but it was a little bit to bulky.

    um, im assuming price isnt an issue. The breitling has too much crap going on with it. The Omega is nice but who needs a helium escape valve. The tag is nice and for the price of the breitling, you could buy a couple tags.

    I believe that the Omega comes in two sizes a 45mm and a 42mm. Maybe you were checking out the 45mm?

    Whichever you choose... post pictures please :).
