Great review as always Ricardo. I'm wearing my DB Lemania today so a very appropriate read.

Thank You Gentlemen.

I have always liked the Cosmonaute myself and it was a great pleasure for me to be loaned these two great examples.

However, like you two, I would really like to find a nice Lemania Cossie one day.

Great review, Ricardo !

really hard to understand that Breitling decided to drop this icon from their catalogue.
Reading this with a Lemania Cossie from the late 80s on my wrist. Love it.

Rick, as always a great review. It was your review of the montbrillant Olympus that convinced me it was the watch for me, and you steered me to Sam at Andrew Michaels where I bought just the Olympus I wanted and made new friends with you and everyone at AMJ! Now I see the Cosmonaute. Life is full of temptations. I have been in touch with Andrew and Sam. I love my Olympus too much to even think of trading it. The cosmonaute looks like a beauty too.
Stephen Winer (remember me?). I have mastered the moon phase.
A friend gave me a noblia with moon phase, too. Wish it would trade for a Cosmonaute. Any suggestions?
Your friend, Steve.

Hi Stephen,

I'm glad that you are enjoying the Montbrillant Olympus and thet you have now mastered the moon phase. How are you getting on with the slide rule?

The Cosmonaute would compliment your Monty Olly very nicely in my opinion. I would love to own a Cosmonaute to my collection in the future. The 24 hour dial is a great complication that is significant to Breitling's illustrious history.

I would ask about trading in the Noblia with AMJ. You never know.

Best of luck.

Thank you, Rick. Always good to hear from you and read your excellent reviews. I have just begun to learn to use the slide rule feature. It reminds me of high school. Of course, kids today use their computers and cell phones and the slide rule is nearly extinct. But I am learning. A fascinating watch. Stephen
