My first Breitling... (custom dial)

Just got my first Breitling sized up.

My Air Force squadron put in a custom order last year... took about 9 months but we received our watches a couple of weeks ago.

Breitling Aerospace with a custom dial for our jet (KC-10). My watch is number 3/39. I am really enjoying wearing it today. The caseback is engraved with my name, squadron, and "Big Sexy" nickname for our jet.

A huge congratulations to you! This is the ideal watch for what you do and the bespoke aspect with your squadron makes for one heck of a story behind it.

I've seen various watches with dials printed (and case backs engraved / stamped), but it's my first time seeing a recipient of one post, so very special!

Ah yes, please include a shot of the aforementioned back!
