About to pull the trigger on my first “Real” watch. Granted, this bracelet is too loose, but what do you guys think of the size relative to my wrist / arm? This is the age old 43mm vs 46mm debate — I love the blue!

Yeah, once it's fitted it should be fine based on those pictures.

Yea you have plenty of wrist to be able to wear a 46mm once the bracelet is sized

Thanks for the responses guys! I should have mentioned before that my wrist measures exactly 8”.

I certainly appreciate the unbiased opinions - they help reassure me that I won’t look like a clown.

I would insist on at least a 20% discount off MSRP or walk. This model takes a huge hit on the secondary market.

I wouldn’t have imagined there was that much wriggle room when buying from an Authorized Breitling Jewler. Thanks for the advice! I’ll aim for a great deal or walk if I don’t get one.

I think I looks right.

But I agree as others have said 20-30% discount or go buy one second hand.

Model A2432212-C651SS is $5950 on Jomashop.

Same watch in pic is $7480 sticker at local Authorized Dealer.
If purchased at 20% discount from my local dealer it would be $5984, or basically the same as Grey Market Jomashop.

Is $6k a good price for this piece, or should I fight for lower at my AD?

My opinion would be that if you can get an AD to within $16 of a grey market dealer like Jomashop, then you're doing very well. Admittedly my opinion is coloured by the fact that I live in the UK where discounting is not the best from ADs, but IMO getting essentially a grey-market price from an AD is a no-brainer.

And for what it's worth, I also voted "Just right" on the size. My wrists are 7.75" and 46mm has always been my preferred choice (certainly over the older 41mm and even the 43mm) when it's come to Navi's. For more heavily built sports watches I find that, depending on case shape and lug design, 42 - 44mm is better for me, but with Navi's I think you can always go a little larger than you usually would due to their finer construction.

If you can afford it you may want to spend the extra and get the newer Navi with Breitling movement. It does not have the second time zone but is 1MM thinner and has a 5 year warranty vs 2 on the non breitling movement. The Breitling movement should also mean that it may hold its value a bit better. Your call though.
