Ironic... otr002 mentioned the vintage Breitling and posted a picture of the brown one, and as it happened I was talking with a guy selling a couple NOS cases. Well, I just bought an NOS case for the blue trimmed brother of the one otr002 posted. Having a light blue chapter ring and dark, dark blue outer ring on the bezel, it's one I'd been looking for/at for some time (as I noted above).
Now, what to do with it when it arrives??? I'm not going searching for an elusive vintage 7740 movement, very limited production, etc., etc. (though new dials and hands were floating around not long ago). Instead, I think I'll do as I have with a dozen or so other NOS cases... once it shows itself in North Louisiana I'll measure, research, and see what Seiko guts I can come up with that I like with the Breitling Bull case. There are any number of Bull dials running free. Now, what WOULD one call this Franken??? A Seikoling, Breikoling, Breiko, or???
Stay tuned, when I get it together I'll post pix... but, don't hold your breath, swapping a new LS3 into my ol' Avanti is taking up a LOT of my time and I'm starting to get antsy about hearing it run.
Below is a quick & dirty Photochop with something I happen to have on hand. It's probably a Myota movement, though and certainly not a Seiko.
I'll not bother to open the potential donor until the case arrives and I check some basic dimentions... but, a thought.
