    Anyone had any dealings with them?

    Some fantastic looking pieces but they only appear to exist on Instagram.... and no prices.

    These are the guys who put up the Chronomatic Carrera within 24 hours of it being sold elsewhere-that is a FAST FLIP! (it was turned into a real franken FYI, which never bodes well.)
    Agree though, some very nice pieces otherwise. I've had no dealings though and not aware of anyone else that has....sorry. :-(

    ps no prices=very irritating always!:mad:

    that blue panda would be a great re-issue to celebrate 50 years of the Chronomatic with the sellita 'calibre 11' in the Peterson case. I don't know if Breitling still holds the rights to 'chronomatic' though. As they were also part of Project 99 a little cross conglomerate cooperation would be a stunning way to celebrate the anniversary.

    The watch seems to have been re-listed. Same marks on dial. No BoR this time.

    Yeah, it's never been de-listed. I guess no price+franken=no sale.

    Check out this thread-

    In short the hands are wrong and the serial number is too high for a Chronomatic. It also seems the movement isn't an original early spec cal 11 either. ( I don't know the ins and outs of this last point but I have been told the early Chronomatics has something 'special' about them!)

    interesting read! thanks Steve. The hands are indeed different but the early cal 11 difference and serial number bit were new to me. buyer beware, 25k out the window!

    Both of these issues would make me steer clear of them.

    There was (is) another mob on Facebook who seemed to be able to get hold of all sorts of rare and interesting watches. I'm not on Facebook these days and I can't remember their name but you know the sayings, 'If it seems too good to be true, it probably isn't' and 'Buy the seller'.

    How do you 'buy' an anonymous Instagram/Facebook profile?
