After the re-edition of the Fake Navitimer Ref. 806, Breitling brings this year another vintage-inspired model, this time paying tribute to the reference 765 AVI 1953. And just like what they did with the 806, it is all about faithfulness and respect of the original watch here.
Same goes for the shape of the case itself, which features thin and bevelled lugs, mushroom-like pushers and a large but thin crown. The bi-directional bezel, a necessity for pilots, is made of polished steel with an engraved 12-hour scale, filled in black. The Best AAA Breitling Replica bezel has a thin grip on the periphery, with beads of rice profile. The case is mostly polished, with brushed caseband.
All are worn on vintage-looking leather straps with pin buckle – in black for the steel model and in brown for the precious metal versions. The Breitling Replica Watches only concession to modernity could have been a sapphire crystal… but even here, the decision was to stay true to the original model with a hesalite crystal.
The calibre B09 is based on the well-known and widely-used Fake Breitling B01 architecture but without the self-winding mechanism. Certified as a chronometer by the COSC, it is an integrated chronograph with column-wheel with vertical clutch, offering 1/4th of a second precision. Beating at 4Hz, the power reserve is 70 hours when the movement is fully wound. The movement is hidden behind a solid steel back.
