The Goldenballs Chronomat
Words by: DUNCAN QUINN
Not so long ago David Beckham was a manchild with a squeeky voice, a powerful set of hams, and a surgically enhanced and allegedly spicy wife. In the decade since DQ was supposed to rendezvous with him in Spain to help him dress the part he’s grown up into a full on fashion deity with golden balls and tighty whiteys of his very own on sale at H&M. He’s the man every saucy girl wants to bed (and many claim they have) and every bloke either wants to have a knock about or get into fisticuffs with.
Breilting clearly thinks he’s the dogs danglers as they’ve just printed him a large check to be the new face of their Transocean Chronograph Unitime watch. And his rockabilly globetrotter does them proud. As does the watch. She’s a peach.
That said, we quite like the look of the new special edition Navitimer Blue Sky 60th Anniversary for when we alight in our Icon A5 to spirit ourselves and a lovely lady off to the lake of a weekend for a cheeky GnT. And also the Avenger Seawolf Code Yellow for when we re-enlist in the next mercenary coup to take place in your despot ridden country of choice.
All in all its a smorgasboard of choice chez Breitling. But we do love them. They’re for mavericks. Gentlemen Rogues. So how could we not?
