Hey Everyone,

Got the '08 Chronolog & pricelist today.. Very nice.

Bad news is prices increased as expected for the '08 models. Good news is it's not much. For steel or steel / leather combos, the difference seems to be about 2-5.5% (most less than 5%), fairly reasonable, especially given the dollars position right now. Two tone models climbed a bit more, about 6.5 - 7% as would be expected given the increases in gold prices this year.

Here's a quick snapshot of some of the models '08 prices (USD's). All models are stainless steel w/ stainless steel bracelet versions unless otherwise stated:

Model New '08 Price % Increase
Navi (Leather) 4,450 2.3
Navi 5,500 4.7
Olympus 7,440 5.5
Chrono Evo 5,100 5.5
Chrono Evo YG TT 7,145 6.6
Chrono Evo RG TT 8,075 7.0
Blackbird 6,050 3.1
Emergency 5,375 1.9
Airwolf 3,820 1.9
Skyracer 4,960 2.2
Skyracer croco 4,990 3.3
Super Avenger 3,995 2.7
Seawolf 3,370 5.4
SuperOcean 2,420 1.3
S.O. Steel Fish 2,520 2.0


I'll try to work on a full pricelist to post in the upcoming week...

I'll be looking to get hold of one of these soon.

I'll post the prices in UK £s when I get them.

Hi Scott,

I'm still loving the Super Avenger. Thanks for asking.

I've never had so many comments about one of my watches before. I guess it's the size (especially on my 6 1/2 inch wrists!). Only one person has not liked it so far.

Any one concerned about wearing a 48.3mm watch should try one. You soon get used to the size.

I still feel the aesthetics and Breitling finish are exemplary as well.

Glad to hear you're still enjoying it. Though I'll admit I would have been shocked if you weren't... :wink:

And you're right - superb fit & finish.. Can't ask for anything better! :thumbup1:

Hi Everyone,

As promised here is the same list of Breitlings highlighted by Scott but with the UK MRRP. Scott's original list is also displayed to give a direct comparison.

Here's a quick snapshot of some of the models '08 prices (USD's). All models are stainless steel w/ stainless steel bracelet versions unless otherwise stated:

Model New '08 Price % Increase
Navi (Leather) 4,450 2.3
Navi 5,500 4.7
Olympus 7,440 5.5
Chrono Evo 5,100 5.5
Chrono Evo YG TT 7,145 6.6
Chrono Evo RG TT 8,075 7.0
Blackbird 6,050 3.1
Emergency 5,375 1.9
Airwolf 3,820 1.9
Skyracer 4,960 2.2

Super Avenger 3,995 2.7
Seawolf 3,370 5.4
SuperOcean 2,420 1.3
S.O. Steel Fish 2,520 2.0
As you can see this does not reflect the current UK£ to US$ exchange rate. Once again the UK seems to have a large premium added to the prices for no obvious reason.:sad:

As Scott said the catalogue is always professionally designed and is worth picking up even if you're not in the market for a new Breitling. :thumbup:There are some interesting new models and some interesting changes to older models.

Thanks Scott. Shall I post the prices in New Zealand Dollars (or, South Pacific Pesos as we like to call them around here....) for the 2.5 people in NZ who wear one?
Just kidding, there are a few around here.
Thanks for helping convince me to buy My SO this year, before the prices went up making it just that little bit more harder to justify (to the wife). :thumbup:
