Couldn't hang. Three minutes in and the box wasn't even open.

Whoever came up with unboxing videos should be shot.

I challenge anyone to find where those guys have actually USED a weapon. I, personally, don't give a shit. Enough folks open carry and CC around here that no one even notices.

Bet that box and watch wouldn't last long in Ferguson though.

Yup
Watch collecting is a disastrous trap and I'm stuck. At least I always know what time it is.

I owned 3 914s through the years. Handled better than my 911SC. Wish I had one now.

Here's a nice restored 914-6 for a $109,000.00. A rare case, of course, but I have a friend with a 914-6 shit bucket who gets regular offers of $40,000 plus.

Current 914 enthusiasts are kinda getting the last laugh.

Please note I did not mention the unique 914-6 model in my quote above. Simply comparing Breitling's entry level Colt line to Porsche's entry level models.
Despite being a openly bias 911 guy, I do wish I never sold my '65 356C.

Getting back on topic... I believe Breitling did their entire watch line a disservice by producing the entry level watches under the same brand name. But perhaps in forty years Colt owners will get the last laugh as well.
imho, m2¢, ymmv, etc., etc.

Yup, the 14/6 was a whole different animal - like a go-kart on steroids. You could scare yourself silly in one of those.

I miss the outgoing Colt II auto that was 40mm. Having owned two of them, it was a fantastic dive watch.

He bought an entry level Breitling and he is complaining about the outer cardboard box? Who gives a shit, who gives a fuck?

Also complains about the crown logo not lining up and the lack of a 24 carat gold logo?
You get what you pay for.
Glad the bracelet does not grab at your Orangutan hairy wrist!

Your friend should sell forthwith. As should anybody else with a half decent car. Used car values are experiencing an insane bubble. Anybody who remembers the late 80s will know what I'm on about.

The guy has had it for decades. It holds great sentimental value and he doesn't need the bucks. I'm guessing he will die with it in his possession.

Fair enough - he should keep it! But I think my statement would hold true for the majority of 'collectible' car owners (unless they really don't mind taking a bath when the bubble pops).

Most brands do entry brands once they are established. Making that bank off the name alone.

It's like buying a "1" series BMW and bitching because it isn't an M5.

Should I be worried that the back of my SuperOcean says Colt on it? :roll:

And Yes SaoGage, the new Colt at 44mm may just be too big.
