The introduction of the automatic chronograph movement was a cataclysmic event for the Swiss watch industry. Up to this point there were only two kinds of Breitling Replica Watches: the self-winding watch, and the chronograph. In 1969 however this discord passed into history.
Best AAA Breitling Replica also made available the ref.7652 which had the manual winding Venus calibre 178 – the workhorse of the Avi/Co-Pilot watches right from the start. Both of these models could be supplied with different trims; either a countdown scale with coloured segments, especially useful for Yachting, or a double scale bezel (12+60).
It had a reverse panda tri-compax layout with an internal tachymetric scale. The rotating bezel remained in the familiar ‘Division 12 scale’ form. For the first time, the Top Time came with a Valjoux movement, Breitling Replica Watches calibre 7736. This was a manual wind caliber that measured up to 12 hours, had 17 jewels, ran at 18,000 vph and had 45 hours of power reserve. A true workhorse calibre for a truly marvelous chronograph, and, as later will become clear, the last of the family.
Breitling, was the father company of the chronograph in its current form; it produced the iconic Navitimer, the Breitling Replica Emergency and countless other important chronographs. Within the company’s portfolio the Avi/Co-Pilot series of watches was extremely important.
