    Today I take out a lucky buy from earlier this year.
    I was hunting for early all black Breitling Navitimers for a couple of years and fetched 3 including a 809 Scott Carpenter. So I was quite happy with my trophies. :)

    Then last year an ad came up on the German EBay KA with an 806 all black in gold plated case. I never wanted one before, but I got interested by the requested price of EUR 3 k.

    Long story short, I bought it and when I received the watch it was a „wow“ effect. The watch turned out to be very original and with a great dial, which is a gilt dial by contrast to the normal 806 SS dial. I am very happy now about this watch although it was not intended to buy one.

    Best

    Thanks to @No Mercy I was able to recently scratch a really bad itch I acquired; the lust for a Seamaster with a striped dial. Great seller and a font of knowledge, too.

    I apologize for the scratches on my arm. I have a cat that I enjoy playing rough with. He shows his deep enjoyment of a belly rub without regard to the damage it does to my flesh; and yet, I persist.

    The watch:
