The Boeing 100 is the first watch if the day! Thoughts?

Very different looking. I dig it but not a Boeing guy so I am not sure it is for me. I will need to see in person!

I don't think this one is for me. Nice looking enough, but I don't know how I feel about the non-traditional brown dial, along with the yellow accents. On first look, it seems to be a bit too much. Maybe it looks better in person.

Not quite sure about this one, I can see what there trying to achieve as a LE for Boeing but it really doesnt hit the mark for me. They have had some better releases supporting brands (MB, Jaguar). In some respects it's quite similar to the TI-247 GMT. It will be interesting to see what price point they sell this for over and above the existing Boeing range.

Hopefully it will look a bit better in person as it's difficult to tell from the pictures.

I can can confirm it indeed does - and the brown is an interesting shade. Reminds me very much of the cigar dials made by Hublot..

Love the panda dial and the date posit is much improved over the regatta.

The thing I don't like about all their Boeing models is the lack of an angled inner bezel, it makes the watch looks as though there is a huge gap between the crystal and dial. The angled/beveled bezel helps alleviate that visual effect. I had a Ball Fireman once and it had the same problem, the dial looked like it was 5 mm away from the crystal and felt very hollow and cheap. the Boeings had a much better feel to them but still gave me that cheap feeling....

Your picture does the watch more justice than the press release pictures, warming to the watch:)

I was going to mention this very same point, but you beat me to it. But yes, much agreed, and that's primarily why I'm trying to sell off my Model 1 and why I won't purchase another Boeing watch. With no angled inner bezel, the dial looks way too recessed in and it simply does not look right. I personally feel that this is a design flaw, and I'm not sure why Bremont decided to do this.

Love this watch after seeing pictures on Instagram. But I also agree on the bezel. Stil, a really classic, stylish looking piece. I'd have one 100%. I'm by opinion the best of the new releases

Reminds of the Brown used in the Cockpit of the 747-400

Funnily enough, that's the intention - it's the 'Boeing Brown.'

This one has really grown on me..... I am digging the brown dial and white bezel. I do agree with Vig2000 though and would have preferred a inner angled bezel
