    Re: Older Colt II as beater watch?

    After reading some reviews, I'm now leaning towards sending to CT rather than SoCal.

    Anyway here's a pic I snapped this morning, trying to get a good look at that dimple near the :25 on the inner bezel. Pic came out ok so I'm posting it!

    Is the inner bezel replaceable? Or is it a part of the casing?

    I'm not sure, but assume it is part of the case.

    Got the colt back from Breitling service inkluding a new crystal. I'm looking forward to wear it as a daily "beater" even if I don't really like the word "beater". Even so the colt will be worn where I don't wear the galactic or my sea wolf. It's kind of liberating.

    That looks really nice. Appears to be a dual AR crystal now, yes?

    Which repair facility was used? Do you mind sharing appx. cost? I'm still wearing mine, but am about ready to part with it temporarily.

    Thanks! Yes now it's a dual AR crystal. It was serviced in Stockholm, Sweden by time promotion international AB. The cost with a new crystal, but no polishing was about 240 USD.
