If it pops up somewhere, I'll let you know.
Good luck finding it.

thank you Rene, but Roff&you recognize these in a heartbeat (and knew I would try to get this one) :drool:

they seem to come up once a year for us mere mortal Non-Japanese, but have not seen a black for
sale yet, though you saw two on the Japan site, but those were gone immediately. This one has
the complete set, including that rather nice watch stand, from a very reliable seller.

for those who have not seen these yet, the Navitimer Mecanique A11022.1, LE of 400.
Must admit I agree w/ Sharkmouth (who, I assume, meant this & mixed up the years?): "My favorite (modern) Breitling ever!

Wow, very nice pickup. I must say I've never seen that version before. I really like the hand wound movement and display back.
