Normally, commemorative timepieces come with only a handful of design tweaks – a redesigned crown, a vintage dial, a new detachable strap mechanism. Swiss replica Breitling UK, on the other hand, has decided to go all-in, celebrating the 70th anniversary of its flagship watch – the Navitimer – with an entire range of Navitimers ranging from 46mm to 41mm and featuring no less than a selection of 13 dials. Available in stainless steel and red gold, it does have a smattering of old-world 1:1 fake Breitling Navitimer charm, with the same, universally recognised sliding rule, baton indexes and Chrono counters. Inside, however, beats a very modern COSC-certified movement.
Till date, the Navitimer name remains a byword for pilot’s watches. So much so that even AAA quality replica Breitling, which has an equally impressive collection of diving watches under the Superocean name, remains somewhat permanently associated with aviation. It’s an image the brand has tried to alter ever so slightly in the past few years, often to the chagrin of Breitling purists. But now, it looks like cheap fake Breitling is once again taking complete ownership of its greatest success and celebrating it in every possible way.
The inclusion of three different sizes appears to be, in hindsight, a masterstroke, since the cheap fake Breitling Navitimer’s imposing size could have been a deterrent for a handful of buyers. With a 41mm piece in its fold, Breitling can attract a much larger audience. Dial colours include blue, silver, mint green (in 41mm) along with black, silver, ice blue and mint green (in 43mm) and black, blue and emerald green dials (in 46mm). The red gold dials across the range come in silver and black versions. Given that the original piece was 40mm, Swiss movement replica Breitling UK hasn’t exactly downsized.
The perfect fake Breitling Navitimer may no longer be an indispensable tool in a pilot’s arsenal but it’s just one of those things that should be a part of your wardrobe, whether you’re a pilot or not. No one uses a slide rule anymore, but it gives the watch a certain legitimacy and timelessness. It’s also what makes it one of the most ornate, celebrated tool super clone watches online of the century.
