Hello, my name is Anthony and I have a watch collecting problem. :shock:

Fellow Breitling fans, I have been lurking here on and off for years. I thought I had another user name but a search didnt bring anything up.

I used to be a one watch guy. Had a Tag Heuer quartz back in the day. Then my wife bought me a Breitling A17380 Colt (my first Swiss automatic) for our anniversary that I sold not too long ago. :facepalm: She claims not to be upset that I sold it, saying she didnt buy the watch for me - rather, that I picked it out on vacation and she put it on her credit card :P

Anyway, though I dont post often, you may have seen me on the WUS, TRF or OF boards as "ajn3323". Others will find me on IG @gratefulwatcher.

My collecting problem really started after I bought a modern Rolex. I soon found an eye for "vintage inspired" pieces that continue to be somewhat the rage. Then I dove into vintage, really drawn to chronographs of the late 60s to early 70's. As for Breitling, I have a Top Time 810 (MK2?) and a Datora 2034.4.

Ive had my eye out for a long time for a solid 806 Navitimer, but have not yet found "the one". I hope to learn more and add what I can during my stay here.


PS: Below are some photos, as I am guessing you want to see some...
