The Navitimer is Breitling Navitimer Replicamost emblematic watch.For years now, the Navitimer has shared the same spirit and design, with the same slide rule and its 3-sub-counter “panda” dial. But the 43mm of the actual models are quite average now and an update was needed, just to keep the spirit of the original one: a massive 46mm or 48mm tool-watch to wear over your flight jacket.
Even in 46mm, this new version comes with all the features of a Navitimer. The Breitling Replica Watches case has to carry 4 more millimetres but with the exact same design – same faceted lugs, same notched rotating bezel, same huge opening of the dial. If you compare it with the 42mm, you’ll also find the same dial and layout. It’s just a matter of size.
The Navitimer 01 46mm is available in two colors, the classical black and white dial and a full blue one. As always with Breitling Fake Watches, you will have an extensive choice of straps – several colors and types of leathers – and of buckles – pin buckle or folding clasp.
Crucial question! How does it feel on the wrist? We can’t say that it isn’t big. The difference between it and the 43mm Breitling Swiss Replica is really noticeable.This addition to the collection is answering a real demand and we can’t blame Breitling for such a choice. I would say that it’s just a matter of taste and wrist size. Now you have the choice between a 42mm and a 46mm.
Inside the 765 CP ticks the familiar manual winding, 17-jewel, column wheel Venus 178 that Breitling so favored in its chronographs.I pressed the capped top pusher and let the central chrono hand advance a minute just to ensure everything was working as far as the right most sub register and its return to zero upon use of the lower pusher. Well, about 40 seconds in, I felt a brief shock as the right sub register had already moved off of zero.I remembered that Best Breitling Replica modified the 178 in order to advance the sub register every 30 seconds and created a 15-minute register versus the normal 30. Apparently, the 15-minute register was created due to its significance for a pilot in readying a plane for takeoff.
Moving around the dial, or looking at it as a whole, the aspect that gives it so much presence is its simplicity and contrast of color. I started thinking about specific highly iconic chronographs and what they have in common: uncluttered design kept surfacing. Sure, there are legendary, overly complex chronographs: Breitling Replica Swiss Movement own Navitimer is the perfect example.
First off, it’s matte black which looks super serious and technical. It’s marked at every hour, presumably for a second time zone, but it does something very cool that most other watches of this era don’t; it clicks, solidly, into place at every hour.The Breitling has a great bezel with enough of a mechanical feel to let you know it’s vintage, but solid enough to speak of the quality that was engineered into this piece.
From a case perspective, the Fake Breitling Watches feels pretty darn solid overall. It contains a screw-down case back complete with model number, the Breitling logo, serial number, and some other relevant information. It features reasonably long lugs that somehow balance the large size of the case by being artfully chamfered and thin enough to make the watch look wearable on my meager wrist. The case is basically polished all around and has some nice detailing such as the indentations making room for the bezel on the top surface. Thankfully, Breitling Swiss Replica chose to adorn the 765 with a big, beefy, signed crown and adequate pushers.
The history of the Breitling Replica 809 Cosmonaute is one that perfectly mates with its aviation-inspired design. Breitling launched the Navitimer in 1954 and aviators – from commercial to those in the armed forces, heavily used this watch.Breitling responded and they paired the dial with a modified Venus 178 – just as in the Navitimer – but geared to move the hour hand around the dial at half speed to correspond to 24-hours. The watch officially debuted in 1961 as the Cosmonaute and Carpenter famously – Breitling Replica Swiss Movement would go on to advertise the feat of the Cossie being the first watch on the wrist of an American astronaut– wore the watch on the Mercury-Aurora 7 program launch in 1962.
Aside from a touch of green found on the outer ring of the slide rule – likely caused by perspiration entering through the edge of the crystal or rotating bezel – this Fake Breitling Watches 809 Cosmonaute is in wonderful condition. Notably, the applied lume numerals are showing a lovely aged tritium instead of the typical “black” that also points to prior moisture entry. The lugs on this example are also in fantastically sharp shape with their signature chamfers and a transition to perfectly matte sides. The big, fat signed crown and stubby pushers also speak to the production date of somewhere between 1966-1968.
I’ve been highly impressed with the Breitling Swiss Replica. As a “beaded bezel” owner, I was excited to take ownership of a ridged or straight cut bezel. It gives the watch a less jeweled, more modern look versus earlier executions and also gives the appearance of more height. Likewise, this is my first Breitling with the twin planes – much like the 806 Navitimer worn by World Champion Jim Clark and I like that as well. In one’s collection, variety is a lovely thing.
