im not sure what the panny would run me. i have not checked my connections yet. retail is 5700, so less than that. laugh.gif
I didn't know you like Breitlings. I have a really cool 70's style transocean with integrated bracelet and oval subdials with blocky chronograph hands (like the Sinn). Next time you are in ny I will show you. I bought it NOS from the estate of the original Breitling distributor.

i am open to all watch makers. there are models i like and dislike from pretty much everyone.

i would love to see your transocean next time we catch up. sounds great!

I found pictures:

More here.
Apparently, it is from 1973 - it certainly looks it, stylewise, though it still looks almost brand new.

One more:

I will pull it out and wear it tomorrow, I think. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks! I know you have the same, have been wanting this for a while now and a friend at work works with watches aswell. So got this for a good price, couldn't resist. It's never wrong with to many watches :D

 

Next on the list: AP :(

Congrats on the JLC!  Enjoy it, the Reversos are always a great choice.  Glad to hear that the AP savings didn't have to be used to make the JLC happen.

Thank you very much. On the other hand if I didn't buy this JLC watch I could have the AP now :( But few more months is worth the wait!
