    Dude. Tie is vicuna but I really don't think it's possible to market as such. Why don't you just enjoy your vicuna tie already?

    Who posted a jerkin on here recently, declaring they would be buried with it? I saw one today, but couldn't figure out when I would wear it.

    Hermès bag can't be real - they don't do back-and-forth stitching. Last I heard, Hermès store won't authenticate an item brought in, even if you have a store receipt. Go on ebay or CL and look at all the fake H buckles / belts, with the same fake paperwork and receipts - that's why.

    I have absolutely no reason to keep it. I don't wear ties. Not really enjoying just keeping it in a plastic bin.

    I've been a fan of the Poirot series for years now but have never actually read any of the stories, so this was a sweet find. All 50 mysteries in one book. :slayer:

    This is actually not true. The owner of Sicura watches bought the breitling name when they folded. Sinn as well as Ollech and Wajs bought all of the actual tech and components from the original Breitling, Sicura did not. Just the name. Eventually they only used the Breitling name and re-introduced the navitimer in the late 80s.

    Most Sicura pieces use cheap pin lever one jewel movements (even those that may say 17 or 21 jewels). They will use a single jewel movement and randomly place 16 or 20 more jewels in the movement although it does absolutely nothing and is still a cheap movement. They have great styling and that is their appeal. I like the way a lot of them look, but they sell for far far more than they should (some really interesting models command 4-500) because people think they have any component relation to Breitling.

    That's also not true some of them have the lemania 873 movement also found in Omegas.
    Look up Breitling Chronographe

    Speaking of vicuna. It took 3 years but today I found it (only 10% though). Dated 1953 and no moth holes.

    Everything I said is true. No point in arguing about this really. The 1873 is a lemania movement used by many companies including omega and Breitling. As far as I know, it is in ONE Sicura, an anniversary edition. This was not an in house Breitling movement and Sicura shares nothing with Breitling other than the same owner. Other than that one watch, Sicura used EB and Baumgartner movements, which are bargain bin movements. Like I said, excellent styling, but as watches they're pretty meh.
