    Default REP Vs GEN : Breitling Avenger V1731110 Blackbird by G Factory, Nice Correction

    This is my second review of the same model Breitling Avenger Blackbrid V1731110, but what we are reviewing today is from G Factory. And now more into comparison between genuine and what this factory made. As you know that GF is specialized on Glashutte and A.Lange replication, they are good at it. Now they start to make a breakthrough by making one of the famous Breitling model.

    I took the comparison pictures from one of Chinese dealer, but before go into deep, I will tell you something, that compare to other factory, GF made a significant correction on the back case. "GERTIFIE" issue existed on other factory version now no longer exist, GERTIFIE now corrected become CERTIFIE. So for you who love the perfection on detail, GF will be the best one to choose. You can see on below picture :



    Now, let's start comparing between this factory made with the genuine of this Breitling model :

    THE FACE / DIAL




    If we put it side by side betwen GF and genuine, I will say that pretty much no issue on dimmension, GF has made this replica even better. DLC finished on titanium case is perfectly produced the same color with genuine, however the replica need to be more shiny on finsihing, because when you see it, the gen a little bit more shiny, yeah that is only 1 small flaws, basically you can do special treatment on this replica to be more shiny.
    The bezel engraves is also nice, same detail with genuine, almost no issue. When you see it side by side from a bit far, there is no doubt that you won't spot any flaws at all. You will be so confuse which one is genuie, which one is replica. It is just perfect. How about the dial detail? Let see it !


    Need a good eye to spot the flaws of GF replication, because you will spot a very small flaws on it when you start looking on it deeply. Here are some flaws we spotted :
    • All letter on dial should be more thicker, you can see on replica is a bit thin, that is why it will look smaller on the font size, in fact it is only need to be thicker.
    • The date font need to be thicker to reach genuine model, however the font style is already correct. Just need to be a bit bigger and thicker.


    In other words, there are perfections on this replica :

    • The dial finish is correct
    • The marker dimmension is correct
    • The hands (seconds, minutes, and hours) dimension are correct
    • The logo is exactly perfect like genuine
    • I can't spot the pinion size difference between replica and genuine, all perfect



    THE MOVEMENT




    GF using modified A.2824 movement with 28,800bph, perfectly the same specs with genuine. And on this parts, you will find some easy spotted flaws, such as :
    • Breitling and letter engraves on the rotor is not too perfect, you can see easily that genuine have super neat engravings. On the replica the engraving is rough, and the font is too small.
    • Still on the rotor, you will see that there are lines on the rotor, but on genuine is not clear line, only shadowing line. But on the replica, you can see clear engraved line, and there are too many line on the rotor.
    • There is a number near by the wheel on genuine, and there is not exist on replica


    The rest I will say very good, very detail. All the screw, and the gear are there perfectly like genuine. All flaws above can be covered easily, because the caseback of this model is solid, not displayed. Also you can only spot the different when you open the case and put them side by side. If not, you won;t be able to identify easily weather this is replica or genuine.

    Hope you guys can add something...
    Cheers,

    Excellent review, thanks. You've captured all of the important details I'd say. The comments about the Geneva stripes is typical of of the cloned rotors, whereas the custom made plate covers (on other reps) are machined to a much smaller tolerance. Thankfully we don't have to look at this one!

    Yes the weight of paint used on the dial isn't enough, but without the gen side by side, I think it's a great replication from GF!

    I already ordered my GF version a couple of days ago, but will have to wait til after CNY for the qc...

    Yes do share the QC pics. I'd like to see the consistency and whether I need to look out for flaws on my qc pics. Thanks

    Cool! I'd hope that bezel will line up straight, but otherwise all looks good.

    Has this been shipped yet?

    Looks like the factory has toned down the grain of the dail. Possible better match with the gen? Only other thing I noticed is the red square around the date window is more bold on the old dial? This looks closer to the gen. The new less grainy dial is slightly duller.

    Is it me or is the "Gertifie" version made from a different material? The G factory looks like it made there from plastic because in all the pictures, I see, it looks so bad. However the "gertifie" version looks like its DLC steel/titanium.
