In 2019, Breitling introduced a nearly original modern reprint of the 1:1 Replica 1959 Navitimer reference number 806, and now the brand has introduced a new variant of this watch, with a platinum case and some other notable changes.
The case of this new watch is 41 mm wide and approximately 12.86 mm thick. It has the same dimensions as its steel cousin but is made of platinum. First, it brings a reassuring weight to the watch (this watch weighs 120 grams without a strap).
Second, it adds an extra sense of luxury. Faithful to its retro roots, the fine rice bezel sits on the top of the case and the plexiglass crystal protects the surface of the replica vs original watch. The case back has been kept closed, and the water resistance is limited to 30 meters.
The dial of this limited edition platinum is presented in dark blue. It complements the bold Arabic numerals coated with white super luminous coating, making them stand out against a dark background. The layout aspect is still very familiar and provides an amazing amount of information. Fortunately, Breitling watch copy did not insert a date on the dial to maintain balance.
Powering this watch is Breitling’s internal hand-wound B-09 movement. This movement is based on the B-01 movement without a rotor, which helps to control the thickness of the watch. It runs at a frequency of 4 Hz, has passed the COSC certification, and provides approximately 70 hours of healthy power reserve when fully wound.
Breitling Navitimer 1959 copy is a beautiful-looking watch that perfectly blends retro look and uniqueness. This watch comes with a blue alligator leather strap.
