"Aeromarine Shark"... What a seriously cool name! Beyond just a badass name, the watch is incredible, you hear 42mm and you think it will wear large on the wrist, but with its lug to lug of 46mm it wears so compact and is super comfortable! Plus the 20mm lug width allows for lots of strap options, believe me, this is a strap monster! Plus this is from the era where Breitling was making some seriously cool watches, its great to see Breitling coming back to that now!
