Breitling Datora - 784 GYGAX
Searched for a long time - it is finally here

The little sister of the 785 from 1944
A friend wrote in Breitling lounge.de :

"more rare than the Datora with reference number 785 is the Datora with reference number 784. In the last ten years I have only ever get to see 2 piece, a massive red gold, which I myself had with stainless steel case and a.

The date functions, the case as well as the dimensions are identical with the 785, 784, however only 2 sub-dials (on the 3 pm and on the 9 o'clock position), the sub-dial on the 6 o'clock position is looking in vain."

My comment :
Such rarities are currently still completely misunderstood by watch collectors and if they appear once sold for a knockdown price, in contrast to many bulk goods of other brands. I am thinking for example of the Rolex J. Claude Killy. Although nothing special, even with the same movement Valjoux caliber is equipped 72 C, and one on the Internet in a single day can buy 3 pieces of it, between 70,000 and 100,000 euro traded.

Should the price relationship exactly the other way around. This phenomenon is not rational to understand and can be no longer than with the stupidity of the mass of the collector of watches will be explained or because each pimps and any nouveau riche Russian Criminal Rolex collects.
