"Breitling - disrespect for our heritage" :shock:
a shame indeed.
sorry Wes for hijacking your great thread; we probably sound like grumpy old men.


Ha, ha, grumpy, old, WISE men :-)
I hope the bottles of wine are all original :shock: Allegedly from Valerie Schneider's estate in the south of France. The olive oils were not bad if I say so myself.
Have not corked the wine yet but "it is just a matter of time".
Wine does not age well in my house :oops:

Thanks for sharing. What is that silver faced Navi with black subs? I like it a lot and can't remember seeing one in Fred's vast postings of all things vintage and cool. However, I'd bet he has one squirreled away somewhere. :wink:

not vintage, Rich; a "50th anniversary", launched in 2004 - for the 48th anniversary, of course :shock:

nice, but not special enough in any way besides the twinplane logo to be truly collectible.
