23rd of May 2020: It is my Breguet Type XX Platinum Case Salmon Dial 16th Birthday!

May 23, 2020,01:00 AM

Yes, yes... 16 years have passed since I found this superb Breguet Type XX " Salmon " in Taormina, Sicily. 

The picture I took of it on the Breguet Archives is here to prove it: 

Having your name written here, among all these prestigious clients is really something. I also noticed that they were made a good year before, in 2003, which is surprising as I was told that the 90 pieces of this limited edition sold quite fast. 

You know the story quite well, as I told it several times, already. I would just like to add that this platinum case salmon dial ( made in rose gold ) is a pure joy to admire. 

It is worth a fresh picture!

Happy Birthday!

I salute your collection... You've raised the yardstick of quality and diversity both.

A watch that stays in a collection this long proves that it’s special. I’m collecting for about two decades, but did not find a watch that lasted that long, all-dough my Rolex Batman has a very good chance of staying with me forever. Enjoy that forever lo... 

Fantabulous !

I am curious how you got to make that picture on the Breguet archives? Those are probably held only at Breguet in L’Orient and have the original owner on it? I am wondering if an extract from the archive is something anybody can ask? Thanks!

Nice! [nt]

Agree it will be challenging but it is still possible. Actually Keks sold one a while ago and I really wanted to purchase it...

but his was not a complete set so I passed. Maybe I should have purchased it anyways and asked for an Extract from Breguet πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ. Too late now but if I get another chance in the future at one, I will most likely take it. It would be a nice addition and go ... 

Always nice to seeβ£οΈπŸ‘ŒπŸ» And bought in Taormina is also a nice story... πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜ƒ

Mine is meanwhile also 15 years with me (also bought in May) - but - of course not the PT one... πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜… Still love it though... ...
