The Cons:Features a very busy dial - not for everyone. Limited availability - only 1000 pieces made. The 24 hour display can be difficult to get used to.

Surfrider: #breitling_chrono_matic Info on flybacks: For example, when you click the top chrono button to start the chronograph/stopwatch, the big second hand that is usually static at the 12 o'clock marker will begin. On a normal non-flyback chronograph, to stop, reset, and begin timing a 2nd event, you'd have to hit the top button a 2nd time to stop the chronograph, click the lower button to reset it, and then click the top button a 3rd time to start the stopwatch back up. With a flyback chronograph, if you click the top button to start the stopwatch to time a 1st event but decide while it's still running that you want to begin timing a 2nd event, unlike a usual chronograph, you don't have to stop/reset/start again. While still running, you can just click the top button and the second hand will 'flyback' to the starting position and pick start right back up running and timing the 2nd event. I don't know whether or not this particular watch has a flyback mechanism, though. Nov 10, 14
