    See above...$50. I had seen the prices creep up as well and figured I would have to pay more.

    Nice watch. I heard on a recent podcast that Breitling was just purchased by CVC Capital Partners. Wonder what impact (if any) it will have on their watches.

    That's a great price! All the ones I've seen on ebay lately have been up around $100, if not more.

    My Cocktail Time came today and it's pretty cool. Thanks for the great intro to watch world, guys.

    The face is even better than the photos. The strap is too small for me. I am trying to break it in a little bit and see if it will stretch. Anyone here try a Perlon strap with Cocktail Time?

    I wouldn't bank on a leather strap stretching to fit you. I haven't but a quick google search shows some nice looking combos out there. Glad you're liking the watch!

    you might not be thanking us after a few purchases. And yeah, the stock strap with that is pretty bad. I have never really had one stretch either.

    A couple new pickups for summer... finally ordered the SKX013 (mid-sized brother to the SKX007/009) after literally years of thinking about it. Mostly because I finally saw one priced under $200 on bracelet. It's always bothered me that the SKX013 has usually been priced $50+ higher than the SKX007 despite being the same watch. I've been swapping this between the bracelet (chintzy but very comfortable) and various NATO straps.



    While waiting for that to arrive in the mail I snagged this Seiko Turtle remake after seeing it at Costco for a good price (better than Turtles are currently priced on Amazon). Interestingly, after a little research it turns out this particular Turtle seems to be a Costco exclusive model (Pepsi bezel and black dial like the SRP779, but sold on a bracelet rather than a rubber strap). I swapped the bracelet for a NATO (pictured) and now a rubber strap. Despite being huge (44mm) it is surprisingly wearable and comfortable thanks to the case shape and 48mm lug to lug.

    Costco seems to do that "exclusive model" thing often. Solid pickups. I jeep going back and forth on the turtle. I like the gilt version but not sure the case size will wear ok for my 6.5 inch wrist. Kinda tiny arms.
