    Hi all!
    Olivier, from Brittany "Bretagne" / France. I'm a little over 40, married, dad. Lover of old watches, especially, and more recent ones too. Which ones? A lot..
    I speak English like a 5 years old child (a retarded child - but I perfectly understand Trump's speeches for exemple, don't worry) so you will understand me veRy easily.
    See you soon.
    Kenavo!

    PS: Sorry foR my accent.

    Welcome! Take care with the 'R'...it's very confusing!

    I love Bretagne, a fantastic place and normally at this time of the year we're at our vacation house in Batz-sur-Mer enjoying the delicious food, healthy sea breeze and beautiful nature of the Guérande area.

    I was a few years ago out in La Baule and almost bought a trio of Mil. chronographs: two Type 20/21's, a Dodane and a J.Auricoste and a 60's Lemania that I'd found in a vintage jeweler's. Unfortunately he was selling them all on consignment and after really giving it my best shot we just couldn't reach a deal....I still regret not bringing the Dodane home with me, but ah, cést la vie!

    Thank you all.

    @Als 27: Ok :D Another cool endroit La Rochelle.

    Yep, it's boring ... edited.
    Nice. I know Guérande obviously, beautiful place (I should have spent the next weekend next to Vannes...), but I confess that I'm not very familiar with this Breton corner. I'm more familiar with northern Brittany where I have my habits (Saint-Malo <> cap fréhel); islands (Belle-île-en-mer and Ouessant especially) ...
    I understand your regrets, these old military chronographs are very desirable. This vintage jewelry still exists in La Baule? Name?
