A 2003 Breitling B1 A68362 which had a SQ module put into it about 10 years ago. The watch was in a bit of a state in 2018 after 8 years hard work, LCD screens didn't work, bracelet damaged and much more. Late last year I decided to bring it back to life and sent it for a full overhaul at BUK and sourced a NOS bracelet.

There is a slight patina now on the 17 year old dial which is barely noticeable except under magnification and at certain angles, surprised that BUK didn't suggest a new dial as they suggested a new everything else :laugh:

The fighter bracelet which is one of B'lings better looking bracelets but one which isn't as robust as later styles has been out of production for some time. Mine was in a bad way, I found a few bits and pieces online but it still didn't address the problems properly. I was mulling over paying £900 for a modern replacement when I found a NOS Fighter on Ebay for a sensible price.

Although I have spent as much on the watch as it is worth I couldn't let this classic go, I will keep it going for as long as B'ling have the spares.
