Fred is definitely the expert in these watches, the Breitling Co-Pilot and the several watches that it inspired.
Seems to me that Miles is wearing the Breitling . . . a good choice, given the legibility and quality of construction.
: Fabrizio, the design ist quite distinctive- and originates in the
: early 1950s.
: Breguet/MatheyTissot/Girard produced a design that was very much
: "inspired" (to put bit mildly) by the Breitling
: Co-Pliot with the 1959 Aeronavale, but the lug form, size and
: the shape of the minute counter hand are different:
: little (actually no) doubt for me here.
