Post subject:  Colt GMT Bracelet/ Crosswind Special/ Diamond Bezel

I purchased a Colt GMT with what I believe to be the Professional II bracelet yet it has a bracelet model number of 840A which is not listed on the list. Suggestions? Also, I just purchased a Crosswind Special. Anyone have any info on it like when it came out, where, how many? None on ebay and nothing on Breitling's web site. Finally, are diamond bezel's off of e bay safe. Will the same one made for the Crosswind fit the Crosswind Special. Anyone know of any diamond bezel sellers in south Florida?

The crosswind bezel will not fit the crosswind special, the watches are not the same size. I *love* the Crosswind special, the tri-compax layout with big date is such a great combination.

What color dial did you get?

You can also bring your bezel into a dealer and they can custom make a diamond bezel for you out of the one you have. Some jewelers use the one you give them, and some use a blank to make you one.

I've also updated the site to have the 840A bracelet.. it is a fighter bracelet, not a ProII

I got the crosswind special with the black (but sometimes looks like navy) dial with white small dials. Know anything about history of this watch?

Sorry don't know much beyond what is shown on this website and the info listed in the Chronologs..

Nice colors! All of the color combos i've seen for it area nice, except I am not a fan of the two tone.
