The Avenger looks okay to me based on the quality of the lume dots of the dial. I'm not strong on this model range though so I'd wait someone else to confirm.

The Navi looks fine. This Navi is a pre-chronometer model so didn't have a COSC certificate.

Thanks for that sir. So when was Cosc certificates introduced because I think the guarantee book has this model down as 94 or 96, not sure without checking ?

I think Breitling made all their watches chronometer-grade from about 2001 onwards. Previously only selected models were. The third digit in the reference number indicates this (0= non-COSC, 3=COSC)
