    I'm about to order my first one but can't decide between black dial with numbers, montbrillant datora or world. I'm aware neither of the three are super reps, but all are really nice watches.

    I am pretty sure they are all pretty much still the same... however, I would go for the model that has the sub-dials at 6, 9, and 12. You can atleast avoid the sunken date wheel that way. MR can source one for you at $195 right now.

    I hope this helps.

    So is the Montbrilliant Legende the most accurate Navitimer?

    Guys, does anybody know, is there a version of a navitimer rep with a case that can fit gen parts like a gen dial or gen movement, to make a franken?

    Guys, this thread is 8 years old! None of the info is current and it should not be relied on as accurate. None of the models mentioned are even made any longer.

    RWI TD's all supply the same watches..

    FYI #88 trailboss99 post is obviously extremely valid...
