Type XX Limited Edition or ... Original?

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2011-00:02
While some are turning around the new ( unveiled last year, by the way ) Type XX Aeronavale Limited Edition, others are jumping on the Vintage model. The Limited Edition of 1000 pieces, released in fall 2010: Breifly, this LE is a 39 mm case, housing the ...  

Wow, the vintage one is ...

a beauty! Your vintage observations are the cream on the top The new LE doesn´t work for me, mainly because of the bezel. Oliver

Wow! I was about to type congrat until I saw the king of cool.

This is really a delicious watch to have in any collection and with the original box, you kidding me! I'm hopelessly jealous PS. What's with the smiley face on the table? Best Tyler

Not only the original box, but also a vintage Breguet bag ...

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2011-05:53
And a cdertificate of authenticity. Almost what I would call THE FULL SET. As per the King of Cool, he's indeed super cool. Best, Nicolas.

Further to those details.. Happiness !

Indeed, it was a very fortunate find, moment and piece, augmented by the completeness of it, - all this on a way coinciding with some little "round number" - but I truly am happy, as you realized. And as you pretty well know: - with Nico's long shadow in ...

Happy moments, for sure. Do you have any anecdote to share?

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2011-05:55
I heard that the King of Cool was so cool that he almost lost a watch... More to be said, I guess. Best, my friend. Nicolas.

All I know is .. One has to stay focused.. and lucky ..

 By: hs111 : September 1st, 2011-06:46

The guy, you mean the King of Cool? OOOH, yes, there are sparks in his eyes.

You said it... King of Cool is a fast guy. ;)

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2011-11:21
This is a watch I would ADORE to include into my collection, truly. To make the pair with my platinum Type XX, and what a PAIR! You're always welcome, Blomman the slow guy. Best, Nicolas.

That has always been my problem…

 By: blomman Mr Blue : September 1st, 2011-11:26
Oh, that would be an awesome pair! … I am the slow guy back in the end of the line… One day… I will try to shape up! Best Blomman

If he let us some!

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2011-11:30
At his pace, I doubt we'll still have something to grab. But the man has impeccable taste. You have to see this one in the flesh, Blomman, or its former version, even cleaner. They drive me crazy.

Last time in Paris…

 By: blomman Mr Blue : September 1st, 2011-11:46
He was playing us all along… ! Next time King of Cool is the one with the big truck! HAGWE Blomman

No, no my friend ! .. this was just pure luck and fortune of the moment !

 By: hs111 : September 1st, 2011-12:08
Hello, my friend, Blomman ! I had to go in one part anyway for professional reasons, but then also reasonably quickly a little bit earlier, I confess .. - no need to be disappointed about my - solo - trip to Paris - there WILL be other times ; It mainly w... 

Na, I like KoC better! :)

 By: blomman Mr Blue : September 3rd, 2011-14:23
Just make sure to fill the shoes…! Best, my cool friend Blomman

original for me!

 By: playtime : September 1st, 2011-17:12
love the dual register--as well as those lugs! lends the watch a very strong character....
