    Rolex GMT Master II (Batman) vs Breitling Navitimer 01

    I want to buy myself a birthday present and I can afford 1 of the 2 watches. Personally I think that the Rolex look is a bit ordinary, but it holds its value better. Navitimer looks better to me, but it will lose its value during the time. Which one would you buy for yourself ?

    The Rolex, probably. I don't like the "maxi case" with the ridiculously massive lugs and crown guards (compared to the previous, non-ceramic GMT-Master II), but it's still better than the Navitimer in one respect - the case won't leak (the Navitimer bezel is hardly the epitome of "waterproof", I wouldn't trust the pushers either), so it's far more versatile.

    I would prefer the BLNR over the Navitimer. One I like the versatility of the GMT Master and its rugged nature, it probably will be my only luxury watch so I would take the one that can take the beating of regular everyday wear. But that may not be applicable to you, I have always wanted to own a Navitimer and the new in house caliber with 70 hrs of power reserve is a great addition to an iconic time piece.

    So don't worry about the resale value and pick the one that you like and never worry about resale when buying a time piece. My first luxury watch would be a Tudor Pelagos despite it never having the resale value like some of the other luxury divers.

    Choose the one you really want. Go and try them both on multiple times and give it tought. If you get something based on future value, it will just drive you crazy and lead to another purchase in the future

    It really does not matter what I would buy. It really matters what YOU prefer and would buy.

    Personally, I think the BLNR is perhaps the most interesting new Sport model by Richemont in some time. On the other hand, I feel the Navitimer is rather busy to look at and less legible than I fancy; But that's me.

    This said, the BLNR is my 4th, perhaps 5th pick from Rolex. And by some margin.

    Good luck whichever you go with. Both are excellent. Classics.

    If you do indeed like Navitimer more but you're worried about value retention, then it's simple. Get a used Navi so the depreciation hit already built in. Wait for the right deal and don't be too rough with the watch and you're not going to see a drastic decline in value.
