    QC Breitling Navitimer - thoughts?

    Hi
    I'm new to rep watches and need hjelp with one I'm looking to buy. Any comment is useful

    Sorry mate, as per rules, we are NOT going to comment anything.
    If you have some doubts about something ask a straight question... (About anything you are dubious)

      Ahh, okey. I'm sorry for not reading the rules properly. I'm new to this forum.
      The thing I'm worried about is the date-wheel. It looks to me that the number is rotated 90 degrees from Gen, but I am not sure. Do most reps have it this way? Should it be like this?

        im certainly not a breitling expert, but just by googling images and looking at some td sites it would appear that your right the date is wrong

          That looks completely wrong. Who is the TD? What is the cost? Link to web?

            Besides the comments above, Man. I sure do love that navitimer. Really wish they made an 01 in 46.

              Watch is absolutely correct. It is the BP rep of the Navi Classic A23322, the Navi before the 01 and wrongly labelled as a Navi 01 by the TDs. This model had the date numbers between 1 and 9 at 90 degrees to the the others. It uses a 7750 movement which has sub dials in the 6, 9 and 12 position and the rep makers use a transfer plate and gears to move the 30 minute sub to the 3 position and still have it working. However, this raises the dial above the datewheel and causes the datewheel to be sunken and an immediate tell. To get the datewheel flush to the dial instead of sunken, BP have not built in the gears and transfer plate that moves the 30 minute sub from its standard position, the trade off is that the sub dial at 3 does not work, but the aesthetics of the watch are much better.
              You have a very good Navi rep here, nothing to worry about, accept it and enjoy.

                    While you may be watching ( sorry op) what are your thoughts on the navi steel bracelet as compared to gen and to other rep ss bracelets? I just got a rep from a TD and I don’t know.... feels jagged and cheap.

                      I've always been pretty happy with the ones I've had. Which watch was it on?

                          So only the numbers 1 to 9 is rotated 90 degrees? The others (10-31) is the right way?

                          The non-functioning 3 o'clock subdial doesn't bother me as long as the seconds dial at 9 o'clock works.

                              That's right and non functioning sub at 3 didn't bother me either as a trade off for a flush DW. Sub at 9 is working. Lucy is my go to TD as well, so just approve it and by the way if you go to the first sticky at the top of the page 'REP NAVITIMER GUIDE' all the info on buying Navi reps is in there.
