    You guys have some nice stuff there---my most high end watch is a Seiko Milemarker---pretty much wear it daily since I bought it about 2-3 months ago.

    This Is the Jack Bauer watch and in these pics I have the balistic band on it, I also have a metal link band which I can easily swap out with the included allen wrench (2min), come with a nice case and a magnectic recharger.

    COOL! Here's a link to a related thread on it.

    Im not sure what they are called. I looked through my Breitling catalog and could not find the answer so hopefully the watch guys can help us out. Aside from my old TAG my watches have mainly been G-Shocks for quite a while. I have been wanting this Breitling for a long time now and just got it a week ago but really dont know much about it.

    Stephan, does your watch have 2 different color LEDs for viewing the time and using as a flashlight or is it just a quirk of photography that shows it that way?

    I think I read it has a charging stand? How long are you able to wear it between charges?

    Now for the next question, how many different straps do you have? These can be very addictive also. I just ordered a JLC croc strap with deployant for my RDM. I wish I could have ordered a non JLC however these come with a curved pins and strap. So lets see those straps and bracelets.

    It has two light modes. The blue is for reading the time at night, the orange/yeallow is a led torch light for a small flashlight. THe dial has glow in the dark hands and numbers (this is the easiest analog watch to read, nice big clear numbers).

    It dose have a magnectic charging stand which basicly means it charges by just sitting the back of the watch on this mini looking warmer.

    It lasts a good while, the manual says a month long if you were to use each light mode once a day ( you wouldn't unless you were playing with it . . or showing it off . .which happens). The blue light runs for about 4 seconds . .the torch light runs about 20 seconds.

    Only draw back is that it isn't as bright as a stand alone Led key chain flashlight . .which is what I was kinda expecting . . . but then I thought . .it's a watch with a little battery in it . . it's pretty damn bright for that and I shoudn't have expected too much, or even as much as it is. In pitch balck it is a nice light, when I come home to a dark house, it's great . .or to get around the bedroom without disturbing my girl, with some moderate ambiant lighing it is a little less bright appearing. It is great for looking under couches and crevices . .up (close viewng). Looking dead on at the lights you can see them from pretty far away . .they say a mile . .but I think that's in pitch black with no obstacles.

    An awseome watch and I love the band options which feel great and you can size and change them yourself.
    Great little box as well tha comes with it.
