Nice shot, Gilligan, but that's Vardy's arm, on his placemat.

So I guess my answer is, no.


Now fetch me a radio made from coconuts and sea shells.

Send me a postcard from 11,000 ft down, numbnuts. My Pan's been to 125 feet or so, and that was plenty deep enough for me.

I have the same in a stainless band. My dad got it in 1965 at the PX for $65, back when the PX actually meant good prices. I broke the mainspring on it when I was 10 winding the shit out of it . My parents got it fixed and gave it to me when I graduated from the Cal Maritime Academy. I don't wear it often as I'm terrified of whacking it on something. It was built for space travel... goes around once a day as you can't judge AM or PM with no sun. It still screws me up looking at it during certain hours (1200 looks like 0600 or 1800).

I just checked online. The new version of that watch goes for $4300+. It's a beauty!

my Dad got this when he started flying in '56
I had it tuned up about four years ago. It had an alligator band that was trashed, I'd like to find another one.




I haven't worn a watch in over two years.
this one was my favorite for a while

Thanks. I thought they didn't make them anymore. Breitling has ONE, and only one, approved horological oufit for vintage watches in North America. He's in Pennsylvania. The original overhaul service that my folks did for me cost $800. I was wearing it daily and whacked it on a stanchion at work which jarred the bezel loose . I sent it back to get fixed. Here's where it gets interesting (or scary)... they had my name and address on file in California. However, I had since moved to Washington. They never called me for address verification and sent it to my old house in California. Since service takes anywhere from 2-6 months the watch doesn't exactly stay in the forefront of my thoughts while its gone. One day I thought "I haven't seen my watch yet." I called the place and they told me they had shipped it 2 months earlier. I was sure that watch was long gone. I had sold my house to a family of 15 Mexicans, give or take 5, and I figured it was history. UPS got on it and, after some questioning, the box was produced UNOPENED. Someone had thrown it in a closet I guess. Anyway, the watch is now back home and comes out every so often (weddings, funerals, ).

as many of you know by now im independently wealthy and will only even entertain the thought of a watch if it is so superb when women see it they immediately orgasm, and men see it their heads litterally explode.

so what does charlie wear on his wrist?

ill show you, but you must be careful for you might not be able to handle it.
