Golfer Dustin Johnson Loves His Breitling Watch

It seems like when you ask a pilot, adventurer, or even a golfer, what is the first thing they purchased, Breitling watches seem to always be on the list.  It’s no different for Dustin Johnson who after winning the Turning Stone Resort Championship upped his earnings with 1.8 million dollars… and what did he do? You guessed it…The first thing he started splurging on a GMC Yukon Denali for this uncle, a 24 foot fishing boat, and a Breitling watch.

So, if I was Dustin Johnson I would definitely get the Breitling Flying B Chronograph which includes a Breitling Calibre 44B, COSC certified chronometer, mechanical self winding movement, 28,800 vibrations per hour, curved glareproofed sapphire crystal on both sides, large calendar display, and an array of choices in cases, dials, and straps.

Seems like Dustin has great style, and not just in watches… check out his amazing footage:
