Last month Breitling announced its Transocean watch would be produced in a 38mm case. Normally a 43mm piece, Breitling seems intent to more heavily market this piece to women – as evidenced by its press materials, etc. For me, however, I wonder if this could be a respectable man’s watch. The Breitling Transocean 38 comes in a choice of steel or 18K red gold case. The caseback (not pictured) is stylized with two planes, a longtime Breitling symbol. The automatic mechanical, bi-compax chrono movement is, of course, COSC certified. Available on a variety of Breitling straps or steel mesh bracelet. What do you think of this new piece? Would you wear it in 38mm?
