That's probably the lowest I've seen for a Navitimer. Nice deal!

38mm is way too small for a Navtimer.

This movement is based on the ETA-2824. This is the same movement as a $200 watch. I would highly suggest skipping this unless you want to just say you have a Breitling. This is not a deal at all, it's a massive rip off if you actually know about watches.

Here's an alternative for 90 percent less:

Not at all, completely depends on wrist size. Also the smaller size and slimness makes it a great dress watch.

Ehhh. As an owner of both a breitling & tissot, these two watches are night and day. For one, that tissot isn't an 2824, it's got a great power reserve but the BPH is slowed down quite a bit, so it's a bit jerky. Also, the fit and finish between these two will be night and day. With that being said, is the Breitling worth the $1000's more? Probably not, but these are not comparable watches in my opinion.

It is pretty much an ETA 2824.

I'm not sure who would want to wear a non-chrono Navi.

Sure, pretty much... but it's still not (not meaning to be an a-hole... but it's still not the same movement). You put that next to a real 2824 and even an amateur will spot the difference based on the sweeping hand. There's nothing wrong with this movement (and the power reserve is excellent), but again, these are two very different watches.

I hear you, and I think it goes back to your point earlier. Is breitling a better watch, sure. Is it worth literally 9 times the price, that's very debatable. You can probably find an Oris or something with a good ETA based movement and nice finish

When any luxury brand (Breitling, IWC, Tudor, etc...) uses an ETA movement,
it's the equivalent to Roush taking a Ford engine and souping it up.

Yup, wholly agree there (although I've found Oris power reserves to be illogically poor... probably in my head). I'm a pretty big fan of Ball, esp on the used market as their value drops dramatically.

Right.... Because when they're side by side, Ray Charles can't even tell the difference.

Add in the maintenance as well. I just sent off my Superocean chrono for a full service (6 yrs old and it started running slow). Total cost with taxes came out to $480!!

Noone ever brings up the maintenance cost for luxury watches.
