    They're all taken with a Canon EOS400D and the stock 17-55mm lens that comes with the camera. Yes, all of them.

    Looked like a 7750-powered Chronomat of some kind. There are a lot of Breitling models it could be, but it's definitely a 7750 Breitling.

    If you're using a photo host, they pay for the bandwidth, not Eddie.

    You can post gigabytes of images, but it'll use the same amount of Eddie's bandwidth as a post with no images.
