    @Fatboy - Of course i can


    As Fred said, BR was chosen to create a watch for the 20th birthday of that elite unit. They created 3 different models, limited to 50pcs each, and only sold to the member of that task force unit.

    Lets start with the BR01, the iconic model from BR




    Then the Space3


    And finally the Type Marine





    3 different models with 3 different styles. Wrist presence is def not the same.
    What could be this exclusive family without a group shot

    Thank you for this post. I do like the vintage, but my eyes are wide for that BR01!
