I agree, there isn't a reason why Rolex can not offer the same.

Enjoy that book, Mark!

That's a nice book! We have something like that in the jewelry store I work at. I've been looking at the different watches, and drooling.

Very generous of them, Mark.

I've heard if you buy the Bentley Breitling from them, you get one FREE Bentley!!

JJ, I can tell you from personal experience, you get no Bentley with the watch, but the Bentley does come with a Breitling clock mounted in the rich wooden dashboard.

It IS a cool book! There IS that book you can BUY, on the history of Rolex, which would be similar to this one, which is the history of Breitling.

I got the nice Breitling baseball cap first, and then this book a few weeks later. All I bought was one B01!

Doc Mark... that is nice! Just don't get too used to it.

I've read that sometimes Breitling purchasers don't get gifts off a second purchase but then again on a third - or vice versa.

When you gonna get the JACKET!? That's the big question!

LOL! Actually, these gifts were surprises, and nothing more. If I get nothing when I buy my next LING, well, that would be just fine. I'm happy to just get a fantastic watch at a great price!

They just "gave that to you?" I own three Breitlings and all I ever got was a hat

Odly enough, I find myself wearing my Rolex (2009 Sub) more than anything else these days...
