Rep v Gen: SuperOcean 44

Recommended Posts

Del

Hazz kindly let me borrow his rep SuperOcean 44 so that I could take some side-by-side photos with my gen. :thumbsup2:

 

I must say that I'm very impressed with the rep - it is super accurate! Only some very minor things would give the game away and, even at that, you'd probably need a gen in your hand to spot the differences!

 

On the rep, the dial hour markers appear to be integral to the dial (like they are embossed and then painted), the AR is not as good as the gen, the yellow font with "superocean" is a bit thicker than the gen and is a slightly different colour and the lume is not as good (I didn't photograph the lume but I compared them myself). There might be other small differences but seriously, they are not material.

 

The rep bracelet doesn't feel as smooth as the gen but the stamping on the clasp is the best I've seen on a Breitling Pro II clasp - really excellent!

 

Have a look for yourselves! ;)

 

(Oh yeah, the rep is always on the right!)

Well done Del. Great to be able to compare and having held them both I have to say the difference is minimal.

Hard to see why anyone would want to part with the cash for a Gen..

 

There are some differences but for me not enought to warrant the cost..

 

Sorry Del !

How do you know what is the gen, and what is the rep? Have you marked them, I don't see any difference! :giggle:

That is unbelievable! Such an amazing replication. I wish this came in a 42 mm size. It looks so much better than the abyss IMO.

The only two tells I could see where the length of the stem on the rep was longer and the "Breitling 1884" writing on the clasp was not as crisp. Did anyone see any others? Thanks for the post Del!
