  6. The case architecture itself is virtually the same, with key signatures like the GMT selector at 10:00, movement window at 9:00, and the rounded bezel design replica watches uk, which now employs a fixed, engraved 24-hour ring – a nice update which more efficiently spreads out the watch’s visual data and enables the reading of that third time zone via the red 24-hour GMT hand. On the original TravelTec, the transition was jarring – going from the crazy-busy dial to smooth, rounded bezel looked cool, but it also wasn’t really the most judicial use of the case’s available real estate. One other notable change between versions of the TravelTec is in the caseback. I, for one, preferred the outgoing version, with its large, retro-futuristic earth motif, ringed by the TravelTec’s bezel and capped with its flanged crown – perhaps a sly nod to the watch’s planet-sized footprint on the wrist? Either way, it’s been scaled back considerably, with just a full rundown of the omega replica watches globe’s time zones and the usual respective city from each, save for Lucerne, Carl F. Bucherer’s city of origin getting the nod instead of the usual Geneva. In its new design though, the caseback itself serves a little more purpose than before, acting as a useful reference chart when setting the GMT hand. From the snailed sub-dials and beveled, mirror-polished luminous indices to the modern, skeletonized handset and sporty application of color, there’s more than enough detail in the TravelTec II to keep an everyday wearer from getting bored. Even the perfectly spherical date magnifier (love it or hate it) adds texture and depth to the breitling replica dial from every angle. That said, there’s very little about the TravelTec II that makes it a watch for every wrist, or every personality. While the amount of detail on the dial might be somewhat divisive (I personally love it), the size of the watch greatly reduces its prospective audience size.
