That is a significant 1000th post, hs.
You damn go fast, even with the number of your posts!
As for your pics, gthere are so many cherries on the cake that it must be a Schwartz Wald Torte.
All is so appealing here, from the watch, of course, to the delicious correct vintage box, the dedicace coming from the brother, to the bag ( !!! ).
More of the stroy will come with the attestation from Mr Breguet himself. Can't wait for that moment.
Superb post, hs. Well deserved catch, King of Cool.
Best ( also to your lovely better half ).

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

The King of Cool is back! Huge congrats, my friend! So, you returned to Paris with out me, HS?! I am a bit disappointed… I see you still have your Speedy Gonzales shoes on! Damn, you work fast! And in combination with a guy like Vlad=Dangerous! Nicolas, a...
You said it... King of Cool is a fast guy. ;)
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…
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!
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…
He was playing us all along… ! Next time King of Cool is the one with the big truck! HAGWE Blomman
original for me!
love the dual register--as well as those lugs! lends the watch a very strong character....
