    I would agree with OP's assumption that Breitling only calibrates and decorates ebauches to COSC grade without replacing with (many) their own parts. To my naked eyes, I won't believe the movement is on the same level as I have seen in IWC's Mark XVI or similar.

    But COSC grade is COSC grade. That a particular Breitling looks great inside, but not as great (in your opinion) as an IWC, doesn't detract from the value or long-term use of the Breitling in any way. Nice photo by the way.
