My grandfather is really a collector of proper replica watches and it has forged quite the gathering through the years. He's multiple Pateks, a Breguet, a Vacheron Constantin or two, numerous Rolexes and many more. He's made the decision to provide me one and it has presented me a choice of his Patek Philippe Calatrava in gold or his Breguet Aeronavale Type XXI, and in gold, having a brown leather band. He already bought us a Rolex watch Datejust not sometime ago, even though I put on that frequently, I am not confident that I would like the very formal Patek or even the more casual Breguet. Help me I'm truly looking for your judgment.
Congratulations for being to the manor born. It sounds like gramps has a fine collection, and either you’ve done something to deserve his goodwill or you’re a spoiled trust fund kid. I hope it is the former.
This ought to be a reasonably straightforward decision. The Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica Watches is possibly the prototypical heirloom watch and something you'll cherish before the day you pass it lower for your grand son (and you'll, right?). It's also the greater “pure” of these two watches, calibre-smart, having a simple, time-only, carefully decorated in-house Patek movement.
The Breguet Type XXI is dependant on a Lemania movement which has made an appearance in watches from many other brands through the years. The truth that Breguet is the owner of Lemania, I guess, still causes it to be “in-house,” but it's more home of Piece of fabric than anything. This isn't to state that the flyback column wheel chronograph movement is almost anything to sniff at, but Breguet isn't the Breguet of old while Patek is, by the sophistication of God always is going to be, Patek.
