    Haha I don't think people on Instagram would even notice tbh. There are some 'luxury watch pages' on Instagram which post the reps as gen and people are there saying 'beautiful' and don't bat an eyelid.

    I personally dislike sunken datewheels because they're an eye-sore each time you look at your wrist.

    If it doesn't bother you personally, don't worry about what others think.

          The date wheel does not seem too sunken.

            It is not that sunken yes. Given the black subdials its barely noticeable really, of course that is, if you don't fukking stare at it all the time. Its like starring at the not so attractive parts of your wife/husband/circle all the time, it doesn't make it better.
            Not sure about color accuracy and bracelet quality, but at probably close to Noob Daytona prices, both better be good to make up for the A7750.

              7750 aside, I think the replication looks amazing. For the first time in years of being a Breitling fan, this is the biggest step forward in repping one. A completely new case shape and bracelet. I know we had that Breitlight avenger a few years ago but look how they screwed that one up.

              If I hadn't already ordered a GF SOH, I'd have ordered one of these. But given the vulnerability of the factories at the moment, I'll wait til it improves.

              I'm initially excited about this new rep!

                Definitely has the usual sunken date wheel.

                Decisions decisions on what dial colour is the most accurate.

                I love the copper dial which trusty describes as gold - that concerns me how close it is.

                  Wow, very happy to see that they repped this model. Especially because of the bracelet. That would be even almost the single reason to buy it. Haha
                  Yes, the price is quite high. Could be partially be due to the costs for the bracelet. But perhaps the recent raids play a factor to.

                  Btw, is it me, or do al dates look a little of center to the left?

                    Sunken date wheel is a deal breaker for me, it would just bug me every time I look at it. Otherwise looks well finished from initial pics, the copper dial looks like it has a nice sunburst to it. Bracelet engravings don’t look deep enough but that’s as expected.

                        Video below.

                        Resolution is not great, but I can't see the red numbers and lines on the inner bzel, close to the outer edge of the dial, on the outer of the dial, that would be an quick "tell".

                          Yep, does not have the red markings on the inner bezel plus the sunken date, is a no go for me. Hopefully they will make a V2 soon with at least the inner bezel fixed up so the price is justified.

                            According to the trusty images they have the red markings on the bezel.

                              I'm excited for this one.... Especially the blue one. Asked Andrew at Trusty when the blue dial would be available he said: I'm trying to get factory to pass me to take pictures...

                                I have a chronomat airborne and it is indeed sunken!! They had a quick small run of non sunken ones but they are indeed sunken now... trust me.. I was pissed when I realized I wouldn’t be getting a non sunken airborne
