I have to comment on this: I have quite a few watches based on ETA movements, namely the popular 2824, 7750 and their variants in various TAG, Omega, Oris, Sinn models, and they all run fast or slow directly from the store.
The Rolex watches that we own (three in our family) were amazingly consistent right out of the box. I was impressed that I wore a Rolex a whole week, and it was off by 1 second. And the other ones were similarly accurate. What this says to me is that Rolex takes very good care to regulate their watches, more so than the others I've owned.
It's an anecdotal story, but I was very impressed that the Rolex performed so well. Even after 4 years, my Explorer II is practically as accurate as the day I bought it. Most of the other watches I own I reset after a few weeks because they are up to a minute slow or fast.
The other thing that I find very assuring is how good the Rolex service centers are. They really do a great job servicing the watches we sent them (for the admittedly hefty price they charge), but compared to say, Omega or TAG, they are really a notch above in service. I also like the way Rolex seem to hold their value. While they are rarely an investment, at least they don't lose half their value as you drive it off the lot.
As for the OP, I'd get the Rolex easy. Breitlings never had an appeal to me, and I love sports watches. Rolex movements are proven designs, as mentioned above, pretty much bulletproof, and you still get the pride of ownership of an in-house design. I've seen too many pictures of Breitlings with barely modified standard ETA movements with some minor rotor decoration. Don't know anything about your particular choice, but I'd rather not have another ETA clone (I can tell you they all start seeming the same after a while after your Nth 2824 based watch). The watches that get the most wrist time for me are the ones that have in-house movements or are historically signficant. Rolex has both going for it.
I also guess I like simple looking watches. My favorite pilot watches have to be Sinn. They know how to make a watch that looks like a tool (as a true pilot watch should be).
