So watch came in and is lovely, but not a fan of the canvas grey canvas strap currently on it. I wear my other seawolf mostly on rubber with push button. So I know for certain I need to atain this buckle which another member has approached me with. I did purchase a another canvas strap light brown on a blacksteel folding clasp. The combo is quite nice looking, but again I am just not a fan of the canvas straps. So both straps and buckles our now for sale to fund the Blacksteel push button on black ocean racer.

Stay tuned!!!!

Pics to come when ready

So I bit the bulllet and bought a blacksteel push button deployment off another member. He gave me a smoking deal on it very happy with that. Was trying to sell the current straps I had before making the purchase, but I want to wear the watch. I can’t seem to wear it with the canvas strap, and was going to attach the 108w brown with the folding Blacksteel for time being. My wife took pity on me and said she ll give me the money to buy the other buckle. Just pay her back after I sell mine.

At last we seem to be getting closer to the finale of this saga!!!

Stay tuned for the final chapter!!!

Watch is currently on diver 2 with blacksteel push button. Blacksteel folding clasp is sold, and kinda regretting that. Brown strap I have but selling. Was thinking about flipping this piece, but have decided it’s a keeper.

So let me get into the acquisition of these two watches quite the story i tell you. First back in April I purchased the first watch off wms off of watchnet add. I had sold him a strap before and had no hesitation Dealing with him. The watch came on a canvas tang strap which I sold after obtaining the watch, because I wanted rubber band with deployment. Here’s where the fun started! So I posted a want add here on the source for a blacksteel deployment for rubber. While I waited and combed the internet for a push button that didn’t break the bank(these suckers are expensive brand new) I found a deal on a blacksteel folding clasp with a brown canvas. Looked good in the pics and thought would look good on the watch which it does. I liked the combo, but was t quite sAtisfied with it. By this time my want add for the push button was answered, and was able to negotiate a deal for it. When the push button came it looked brand new, but didn’t function properly. What I mean by this is is it didn’t close quite as smooth as my regular steel push button on my Seawolf, and the adjustment feature was loose. I thought whatever small issues and I got a killer deal so I can stomach these issues. I couldn’t quite stomach these issues, as I wore the watch a couple times it just didn’t feel right. At this time I had sold my folding clasp, but still had the brown strap it came with. So not satisfied with the rubber and push button, I put that up for sale after Re-purchasing a blacksteel folding clasp off another member on the source here.

While I had the watch buckle and rubber strap for sale I started doing some research on Breitling buckles. Not much info out there on them. Certain characteristics about the buckle led me to think I could have purchased a replica buckle. Now after my reading of limited info out there I can’t tell you 100% if the buckle was replica or real, but I do know that it couldn’t have left the factory in that working order. I remember when I started to question the buckle a few weeks had passed, and I emailed the seller asking if they sold me a blacksteel buckle. The buckle felt a little lighter, and thought maybe this is the titanium version. Seller though it was blacksteel, and I left it alone at that point. Wasn’t unti a couple weeks ago I read a piece of information that pretty much sealed it for me that this buckle could be a replica. I contacted a he seller again with my concerns, and sent him a couple pictures and videos about my suspicions. Seller was great to deal with and gladly refunded my money after I sent the buckle back. Took a few months to deal with and figure out but it got done. Big respect to the seller out there for remedying this for me. On another note i ended up purchasing a second one of these watches with rubber deployment combo due to this ordeal. Now they are both for sale, but will most likely keep the newer watch on the rubber and deployment, or move both and step into a chronomat with a b01 movement.
