Excellent guide! I'd love to hear about the Montbrillants in particular and hope they're added soon.

Thanks a lot wothrottle, that's good to hear. I haven't quite managed to decide between the Legende and the Datora, which are both amazing watches in my opinion, at least now I know I can shop with confidence. :)

Incredible post. Will not buy a Navi without using this as a reference.

I would also love to see a similar review done on the Navitimer World.

I wonder if a gen bezel would fit onto my montbrillant datora? Would that fix the misalignment issue? That would fix the AR issues too

Nice review! I really helped me allot understanding about the rep quality of the navitimer.

 

I've a navitimer rep that's a bit bigger then the rep which is discussed in this topic, and has the numbers more towards the outside. See link :

Do you have experience with this rep as well?

Excellent Review, now the question of the year, for Andrew  I got a Gen Navitimer Heritage, Salt water damage the whole movement. damage the dial and the dial ring. I bought a NOS dial, but the only problem i got for finishing to rebuild this watch, is that getting the dial inner or outer ring (the one that turns with he bezel) directly from Bretiling is very expensive. If i get the replica to get that ring will it works meaning on the size?

 

Hope you can understand.

Fantastic review! Seeing that the original post is dated, have there been any recent advances over the years? I know the sunken datewheel is an ongoing issue, but which rep is known to be most accurate currently?
