Hi guys,

Thank you so very much for your previous help on identifying a vintage Breitling for me! Although that one appears to be a reprint, could you please help me examine this one? The logo looks correct to me, based on some online pictures I was able to find. Thank you in advance!!!

Thanks Wayne!! Finally I got something that's correct:)) Just curious: when you say "not great", could you be more specific? Are you referring to the condition, the look, or something else?

Dial could be imo, shows aging and even patina. Still acceptable.

The watch is nice. Just know: 789s are small. Very small. And as such the market for them is quite limited. So probably $1200-1400 max. I personally find this silly because I have tiny wrists and these wear just fine but sadly that’s the market.

That's a great point, Dave. I also have a tiny wrist, so when looking for a watch to wear I avoid anything above 34mm... But realizing that the market for tiny wristers is inherently small is a important when setting the price point. Thanks again!
