    Breitling Navitimer D13022 Real Deal or Close Replica???

    Hey all,

    I havent really seen this model before nor are there many pictures of it i can find on google. I'm curious on this one of whether it is the real deal, If so has the bezel been changed? As i have never seen a Navitimeter with gold hands & SS bezel

    watch is authentic but has the wrong bezel, Dxxxxx stands for SS with solid gold bezel, which this is clearly not.

    Need some more opinions about this watch. After further research on the D13022 models there seems to be the tritium label marked on the dial, which is not showing on this one. The band is also black which seems odd as the dial is metallic blue.

    Is there a possibility that breitling released a small number of these models (i.e. gold hands, SS bezel, black calf skin band, unmarked tritium) from factory? Also is anyone able to identify the year model of this watch?

    Petey, as said b4, the watch is basically genuine, later dials did not use Tritium, so of course were not marked T.

    Strap is a replacement, probably not the first in the 10+ years this watch was worn; OEM straps in blue, black brown, tan, honey - all these colors were and are available for these, just a matter of personal taste.

    and no, Breitling did NOT release a Dxxxxx model without the gold bezel, as this is what mainly differentiates it from the Axxxxx, watch clearly has a - wrong - replacement bezel.
