I am going to be purchasing my first Navitimer and I am having some confusion that I am hoping that someone could help me out with. I am going to be buying the watch second hand and I am looking at what I believe is the Old Navitimer. There are two models that i am looking at, a black dial Navitimer 81610 and an A13322. Is the 81610 the "Old Navitimer" and the A13322 is the "Navitimer II"? What are the main differences of these? These are both black dials, and my heart is a blue dial Navi -- would BUSA be willing to switch dials in these if I send them in for a service after purchase. Sorry if any of these are confusing but any help would be greatly appreciated!

81610 and A13022 are considered as too recent for this " vintage" section .
Both are motorized by the Valjoux 7750 . The main difference is the case : 81610 has a snapped caseback vs A13022 has a screwed caseback . 81610 has a flat crystal vs A13022 has a domed sapphire crystal . Personaly I'd choose the A13022 . No blue dial on the 81610, only panda ( white with black subdials) , reverse panda ( black with white subdials) and silver with gold subdials.
