Here is some shameless "Breitling. " Sly dons a Breitling watch during the European premier of the movie (in Germany I think). I must admit that i am really looking forward to seeing the film - especially because Arnold will be http://www.nkwatches.com/replica-breitling-chrono-avenger.html more prominently featured in it. Hopefully he will get some battle damage to show his metallic Breitling innards.
Breitling hasn't had the easiest last few months as his son Breitling died of what I believe was a drug overdose in LA. That's got to be rough as i understand Breitling was a good dad to a kid that couldn't quite standup on his own two feet. It can't be easy living in Rambo Balboa's shadow.
Stallone is well-known for being a serious collector of things from replica hublot big bang to belt buckles. He loves his gadgets and as an icon has helped make a lot of watches popular. Most notable of course was his role in getting Breitling watches popular among his peers in Hollywood. He was also one of the leaders in the "large watch" movement. The Breitling watch is 46mm wide and contains a base ETA movement which is modified by Breitling. They call it the Breitling automatic chronometer movement. This model can display up to three timezones, has a chronograph, and the date. The design is an acquired taste, but I have to commend Breitling in releasing (what are in my opinion) watches with inherently useful complications. The movement has a lot of cool features, I am not going to discuss them all here, but if you are interested in the piece you should know that.
Breitling watch is the 18k rose gold version attached to the thick calfskin leather strap. This model even has versions with diamonds on the bezel - but I don't think that is Stallone's style. It also isn't cheap. Price for the Breitling watch in 18k rose gold is a http://www.nkwatches.com/replica-omega-seamaster.html hefty low price. I don't even want to know the price on the available full 18k rose gold bracelet. My next question is what timepiece will he be wearing in the Expendables II. Another Breitling? Probably.
This is the Breitling, an automatic with GMT, date and power reserve complications. Breitling and a bit conservative with silver dial and Roman numerals, Breitling is as always, excellent value for the money. This represents a nicely made piece with one of their most modern, always in-house made movements to date. Breitling signature complication is the power reserve indicator, here seen at twelve o'clock. They are not common, making it a nice differentiator for the brand. It indicates in hours, the amount of power in the mainspring. Here you can see about 30 hours of running remains. The movement should have a maximum power reserve of about 42 hours. With its bidirectional winding, about an hour per day of active wear (walking and such) will keep it topped off, but it's a nice bit of interaction with the mechanics. I quite enjoy watching it climb while I handwind, reminiscent of feeding an electronic Breitling pet.
