    This is a hell of a watch. Handwindhelps with its bigger flaw which is thickness

    I know it's based on the old design but I still prefer the hour marks not being numbers, too big for the watch and doesn't look as good as the tick marks

    Has anyone received theirs yet? I also made a down payment but my retailer can't give me a delivery date. Just wanted to see if anyone had an idea.

    I have a 1968 Reverse Panda "Twin Jet" that was my fathers and I can tell you that this watch still looks good today. In 2017 I sent it to Horological Services in Boyertown PA. It needed serious attention. At first I called Breitling Service USA to have them work on it. They told me they do not service their older "vintage" watches and so suggested I contact Mark Heist and his wife Theresa since they are one of the few Breitling authorized repair facilities in the US. I called and Theresa had me ship it to them. A few weeks later I received an email with an estimate on the cost of repair. They of course required 50% up front to start the work. Well about 11 months later I received an email telling me my watch was ready to ship back. I gladly paid the remaining 50% and a week later it was back on my wrist and working like new. I would highly recommend anyone who owns a vintage Breitling to send their watch to them for service. And I would highly recommend that anyone wanting one of these Iconic watches to either get an older 806 or the new reissue. Both will cost about the same amount.
