    The rep BR03-92 are all wrong. The dial, frontal dimension are not that bad, the caseback engravings either but the case has the same thickness as a BR03-94, like a full 3mm difference, therefore the lugs are shaped flat like the BR03-94.

    For me, that pretty much kills it. There are no accurate B&R reps to this date other than the BR02s that look pretty decent.

    Actually (although not gen-like), I prefer the case dimensions of the rep. The added thickness gives it more presence on the wrist.

    Indeed, the rep's proportion gives it a much better wrist presence bu if your looking for an exact 1/1 copy, this one is off by a lot. It's got the same size and lug shape as the BR03-94 but without the chrono pushers.

    It's still a very nice watch, don't get me wrong.

    Has someone tried the reps which are supposed to have the thinner case (refered to as for Asian ETA 2892)

    They seem to have the correct lungs as well

    This one is a copy of the BR01 so it's 46mm not 42mm like the BR03 so yes, the aspect of the lugs vs the case (frim a side view) look right on the pictures if compared to a BR03 but that's about it. The size, caseback engraving mock up lug release screws, etc... are all immense fails IMO.

    To this date, there are no accurate B&R (BR01/03) replicas other than the BR02s

    I really want to see a good rep come out of these. Really doesn't seem that hard to replicate other than the case thickness.

    I must tell you that the "&" is always a DEAD GIVEAWAY on every Rep I've ever owned or seen. That's why I don't buy them anymore. They don't seem to ever get this right at the Rep shop. Look at the case back and it screams a country mile! Always the first thing I check when looking at others BRs.
