looks good, only thing I do not like is the Breitling script inside the caseback, but these were quite often added later; price is in a realistic range. just remember it might be a good idea to have it serviced if you plan to wear it regularly.

EDIT: see it was just sold, did you grab it ?

Yes and it is on it's way. By the way Chronodeco finished the Navitimer 806 that you looked at. He said the watch was mint and from the appearance he said it looked like it was ony used a couple of time. I will post pictures when I get it. :bow:

By the way the Premier will visit Chronodeco also. He was a fantastic referral and I thank you very much.

Regards, Rick

congrats, Rick, nice piece !

you will love how the 18k Premier case looks after Craig has done his magic; those watches wear very, very nicely.

Waiting to see pics of your 806, it looked great on the pics you posted, the cracked crystal just made it look aged, but you could see the excellent dial condition below it, am sure this will be a stunner !

Both should counterbalance the Christmas Wildebeast, though I do agree it shows how much your wife wanted to find "just the right present" for you.
