    I just picked up an A17040 in running condition, but it needs a trip to the mechanic to bring it up to snuff, and I am running into difficulty locating one key part . . .

    Having sold my white dial a32350 several months back (didn't like how it looked with my skin tone), I finally found and snagged today this slate-dialed a32350. Original owner, all B&P, documented Breitling service in 2011. The wait begins...

    The original Fighter bracelet that came with the watch was far more worn than I expected, so I picked up a brand new Pro 2. Starting to bring it back to life! Still needs a full service, so I'll call Nesbits today for a quote. I'll probably start by replacing the crystal (the AR is all kinds of scratched) and the seals to ensure WR. Then maybe a full overhaul later this year. It was serviced by Breitling in 2011 but now runs about +15/day.

    When comparing the Pro 2 against the Fighter bracelet, I think the Pro 2 helps to modernize the a32350 quite a bit. The Fighter looks a bit dated, IMO. The brushed center links do help to reduce the bling effect, but the Pro 2 just looks cleaner and lies flatter on the wrist.

    Hi guys!

    This tread and treads like this one have always tempted me to get my self a Colt! And the other day I did! I won an auction on a Colt Quartz A57035 in pretty good condition that are incoming! Not sure how old it is but I guessing it's from mid to late 90s it comes on a fighter bracelet. Anyway I will post some pictures on it before I ship it to Breitling for service. The service historic is unknown so I better start with that before start to wearing it!
