For every one of the reasons I discover the 01 all that much ready to remain all alone, remembering the pattern of the Navitimer to change rather recognizably after some time, I have a few issues with the AOPA. Some of its components are extraordinary verifiable gestures to past references — the slide-guideline bezel, all-dark dial, and painted AOPA logo included — yet I don’t think these elements are sufficient to make it a genuine reverence to the past.
All things considered, the 01 is still particularly “Navitimer.” Compared to the well known 806, the slide-principle bezel keeps on being noticeable, there is the alternative for Arabic numerals, and the feeling this thing is implied for flying is made obvious. The reasonable contrasts from chronicled adaptations are in the steel logo at the base of the chronograph seconds hand, more noticeable Breitling logo and information imprinted on the dial, the vicinity of a date marker, and absence of a level, beaded, slide-principle bezel. The current cheap fake watch is unmistakably a contemporary redo of an authentic model.
