My first "good" watch was a Breitling Navtimer (now called the Aerospace) which was one of the early dual digital display and analog display - and I never regretted having it - I wore out the band and am trying to decide with several newer high end if I want to have it replaced. I may buy a leather band instead. It served me very well for almost 20 years of daily wear with battery changes. You have to like the price on the GS quartz models as well - it's the same cases and finishes and probably the quartz movement will go 50 years if their adverts are to be believed. I lust for the Snowflake myself, some day, I just sent the IRS all my spare cash.
