Actually, I've got a Breitling authorized independent guy in San Francisco whom I've been going to for 20 years or more. He's fast, and last time I needed service I had magnatized the Colt, under warranty and he fixed it right up!

I just need to get off the dime and do it, I have plenty of other timepieces to wear during the service period.

That's a sweet travel case they sent you though.

Those are pretty damn cool, and a damn sight cheaper than a vintage heuer chrono.

Do you have the Bentley to go with it too?

Of course not. But in my opinion, it is the best looking Breitling watch.

Albert Wajs is still alive although he's in his 80's. I exchanged emails with him a year or so ago.

They're definitely distinct with that knurled bezel. Have any pics? Do you have the black dial?

Thanks, Flood. I'm waiting on a bezel insert for it. It should be in production soon.

Very cool. Reminds me of a Bell and Ross. Love everything except the crown, but for that price, I could get used to it. What are those pushers for?

I wonder how many people who have the Speedmaster have a LEM to go with it?
