1st Breitling

Post by jaw on Sun 30 Oct 2011, 10:46 pm

Hey there,

This one was a long time coming. I was first smitten by this at Costco (no less) at $4k. Should have bought it then but didn't. I did however, visit it often over the course of a year or so. One day - after never seeing it for less, I decided to go for it - and it was gone.

Surprisingly it showed up on SNBC at first for a little over $2k (too good to be true). Sure enough they corrected it to $5300 as NOS. Still didn't bite.

One day on WatchRecon 3/4 of my grails were all available for sale. Decided to go with the one that struck me the most - preloved from a dealer in Virginia (author on WUS) for well under $4k. Haven't had it authenticated yet, but everything feels good so far from my own recon. No Pro/Con impressions on this right now as I remain comfortably numb.

Thanks for watching
