Default Blah blah Breitling.............................it fits!

While traveling around to various ocean beaches, I used my AT-Pro and PVC beach scoop to help me score this lil' gem. Wait, just kidding, it was a CTX and Stealth scoop. LOL Just got it back from the watch shop, all shiny. It works! It fits! Check out the vid... =)

...and while you're at it, check out the latest book for sale by Drayton. I have one for sale in the classified's section.
