Whilst scrolling i found 2 X circa 1973 Navis for sale, so i decided to compare them

they have subtle differences, so i thought i would post them for your opinion

Navi number 1 : http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/221912794780

(pictured)

Navi number 2 : http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/131607635796

(pictured)

is it just bad photography and different age models, hence why the "T Swiss Made T" has moved so much

what do you think?

No2 looks real to me if the one of the same reference 7806 is real on chrono24 (movement looks real too - but the movement is the same as the movement from a 7808

7806 on chrono

but I am now really thinking no1 is fakechrono

but I am now really thinking that no1 is not right

can u explain why you think that ?

none are "fakechronos", No. 1 has a service dial.

yes, movements in the 7806 and 7808 are the same, just as in many other period Breitling.

no known fake uses this movement, as it was only produced for Breitling and Heuer.

I can not find a reference for a navitimer from the 60s through 70s that has the following

"T Swiss Made T" so close together in the six o'clock position
The number 4 in the 40 on the bottom sub dial looks distorted, as does the number 4 in the date dial
"Navitimer" under Breitling Geneve is in what appears to be a bold font compared to all references i can find which are all clear and fine.

of course some of that could be down to bad photography, but not the "swiss made"

I am of course happy to be corrected, new to this

(there are no pictures of the no1 movement)

as stated above, service dial in "No.1", no way to date precisely, probably 1990s.
no real worries w/ movement shots, no other movement w/ those functions would fit the case.

so: very, very clearly not a fake.
