posting my pics in the WWAYWT threads quite frequently, but sadly not to many join me there (thanks Greg, Rick, Andrew !)
I would love to see more vintage Breitlings, maybe more will join here ? (yes, I'm an incurable optimist?)

1957 ref. 769

Very nice Fred, but I fear that Roff will stay an enigma :wink:

I'd post more in WWAYWT thread but with only 4 it gets rather boring posting the same over and over. Rest assured Fred, hardly a day goes by I don't tune in to see what you are sporting...Rick and Mr. October too, they typically don't disappoint.

I do have a new strap for the 810 on the way, I'll hit you all up with that when it shows up.

was in this shape, Rene, but the ring was stuck - watch looked never worn, but rust inside the ring ...
go figure. So a bit of Craig Magic, but not on external appearance - the case is slightly brushed 18k, a bit different from the 1940s pieces.
