I just got my late father's watch back from service. It's the first time I've seen it since his passing, and I've never seen it in a wearable condition before.

The watch got pretty wrecked through years of disuse and sun damage, and even Breitling said that they wouldn’t repair it, but through cannibalizing another broken one I found on eBay and a friend who owns a jewelry store, I now have a fixed Breitling Navitimer Quartz 3300. My parents won this watch this in an Air Rally in 1985 where they flew single seat engine airplane (I think a Mooney Bravo) from New York to Paris.
