    Rolling eyes contemplating trading Breitling Navitimer 50th Anni. for Tag G. Carrera 17 RS..thoughts/alternatives

    Dear fellow watch afficionados,

    As witnessed by the topic matter, I am contemplating trading my Breitling Navitimer 50th Anniversary:



    Special Edition Navitimer (released in 2002), sitting on a brown calf strap with deployant clasp (sorry for the grainy shot),

    for this:



    A Tag Heuer Grand Carrera 17 RS (mug shot courtesy of www.tagheuer.com)....

    Considerations:

    -The Tag has this very clean, slick look about it, whereas the Breitling's face is more cluttered;

    - Both sport pretty much equivalent ETA movements (Breitling uses 2892 with DD chrono module, TAG uses 2894), both reworked to a certain extent;

    - The Breitling is quite a rare model, especially this black dial version, whereas the TAG is more "common";

    - I already have several black faced chronographs (IWC Portuguese, Omega Speedy Moonwatch) so a white faced watch would be a welcome change.


    What is your opinion on this matter? Would you take the plunge, or rather take a different route? I'm open to any viable alternative suggestions!!

    Many thanks.

    Cheers,

    Pieter

    So you want to trade in what most watch people would call a classic. The Navitimer. On the hideous TAG??? You have lots of brillant ideas do you not!!!!!!!!

    No no seriously is this a joke????

    do not do it
    if you want rid of the breitling at least sell it and buy the TAG and still have $$ left over

    Seriously, the Navi is in a different league. I am sure you could sell it easily. Then you could have some funds to get the new B01!

    i have never been a fan of the navitimer(or the speedmaster for that matter) so i would do it.
    Enjoying a life far better than I deserve...
