    have. So, forgive me for a repeat post, altho' it was over a year ago that I posted a another picture of this same watch. It's an old Breitling - made for issue for Iranian pilots. It's about 30 years old. The Sunglasses are Rayban Clubmasters.

    My latest purchase.

    Still playing around with different straps - using a spare from my Black Seal 183G for the time being as the ones that came with the watch are all too long for me & the one that does fit is are a black alligator & black rubber divers (just don't wear much black shoes..)

    Is the back only held on by that single screw?

    - the BR is 42mm & my wrist is 6.5"
    - being square makes it feel & look bigger. My Panda & IronMan are also 42mm

    - yeah, different horses for different courses

    - agreed, but this will be strictly a casual watch.. I think.. Let's wait till Monday..

    Is the back only held on by that single screw?
    - No, the single rear screw is for the crown. According to the research, the 4 front screws on the face under the crystal hold the movt in place & the 4 outer screws hold the case together

    Just changed to the black alligator strap as I am going out for my b/day drinks tonight & will be wearing black shoes.. I think..

    I am really debating on geting a longines watch. How is the quality? I would most likely get a conquest or hydro conquest. Also what are the going prices in stores?

    Yep - I'm far entrenched in the dislike camp but they have evidently been highly successful with BR-01 and BR-03. Clearly unique designs but too gimmicky for me.

    I do like the simple BR-02 design though. Goes back to the early years of B&R and the traditional Sinn military designs they were remarketing (Space One and Two...)

    +1.
    I did it a long time ago but I completely forgot how.
    I'm pretty sure it involves PM'ing a mod. . .
