First Breitling Re-Issue of Kern Era -- Navitimer 8

So what do we think of Breitling's first re-issue of the Kern era, the Navitimer 8.

Here is the posting, from Georges Kern, on Instagram --

And his description --

    The first baby is here. Finally! A new classic Breitling Pilots watch, the Navitimer 8 with our amazing in house B01 Chronograph movement. Of course Chronometer certified. 43mm of diameter. Absolutely beautiful elegant-sports mat and polished finishing with the typical Breitling “Panda” dial look. 70 hours power reserve, water resistant to 100m (330ft) and 5 years of guarantee. SFR 7’100.- and available in May-June. Many more executions in A (41mm), Day Date, Unitime, etc. Thank you to the whole team in Grenchen for the amazing work.

So what do we think of this one? Breitling and Heuer were friendly rivals in the 1960s . . . How will they do in the re-issue / re-inspiration / classics / homage competition, in 2018?
