    Fine watches are becoming more and more of an exclusivity these days. Just say "horology" and most people will think the study of, well... My gram gave me my grandads pink gold Hamilton, though I don't wear it. I also rescued my great uncles Longings AGA from a bin at the estate pick. People say "fine watch" and think "Rolex" but honestly Rolex has fallen from exclusivity. Where in its heyday Rolex could be compared to a duesenberg, now its a Cadillac. Still a nice watch, but not all that special and you see them everywhere. Breitling is a fine swiss watchmaker whose pieces are primarily aviation-purposed, although they also have a partnership with Bentley Motorcars. Men who wear watches are a dying breed in this modern digital age with info available anywhere, but it adds character and is the classical-accepted man jewelry

    Nice watch. Take good care of it so it doesn't lose its value. Luxury watches generally retain their value if they're not abused. I have a Breitling Fying B in my collection and it's one of my favorites.

    Generally not a fan of square faced watches, but that's a nice looking unit. What are the small dials?
