    Navi World I bought from m2m.
    Mali’s I think my crystal is very yellow. Is that common?
    Yes its a problem with the BP Navi Worlds in that some crystals have quite a strong yellow tinge. There's a great post on RG by my mate Dave T who shows this and the options he tried to solve it, its in the Breit section, just scroll down a few posts and you'll see it. Not a lot you can do except get a Prof xtal

      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.

      Thx andyr for summing it up. By the way, is it only the 3 o clock subdial that wont work? or is it all also the 6 o clock subdial that wont work? I was wondering this question for a long time. What about the reliabilty of the bp version of the navi 01? Can it be easy swapped by an Eta7750 incase the A7550 movement is broken?

          Hi Mat, I'm not sure whether the 12 hour sub works or not as I never ran my chrono for an hour to find out, also I would think the ETA would need some modding to fit, think the sub hands might be a different size as well but I'll leave it to an expert to confirm.

              Hi folks,

              I will send the Navitimer for a DW sunken dial fix, so given that, which one would be the best version to get with all functions working properly?

                  No LocoLouie is a scammer unless he proves otherwise which I doubt. I plan to get the mod done by Natas78
