In 2019, Breitling introduced a nearly original modern reprint of the 1:1 Replica 1959 Navitimerreference 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 copyis a beautiful-looking watch that perfectly blends retro look and uniqueness. This watch comes with a blue alligator leather strap.
Breitling Replica Watches introduced the new Navitimer Rattrapante. The piece features the label’s inaugural in-house made, split-second chronograph movement.
The movement powers two superimposed central chronograph hands that chart the split-second chronograph, composed of only 28 parts. To measure an intermediate time, one of the hands is halted and then released to “catch up” .
One is a stamped part that has replaced the cylindrical pin that usually drives the split-second lever in order to enhance sturdiness and isolate the hand from the 70-hour power reserve and time precision. The other is an O-ring seal that surrounds the hand’s stopping wheel. It both simplifies the mechanism and improves its accuracy.
Apart from its stunning split-second movement, the Breitling Replica novelty stands out with a 45mm case in steel or red gold. Housed inside is the bronze-hued dial, which provides contrast for the silver-colored hands, counters, and inner bezel. Referencing the classic look of the Navitimer collection, this latest addition flaunts the anchored and winged B logo at 12 o’clock, where it is framed by the two split-second hands. The gold variant is mounted on a black rubber strap, while the steel one resides on brown crocodile leather.
Equipped with a high performance chronometer-certified in-house movement, the Breitling Navitimer 01 Replica Watch is a larger-than-life variation of the legendary timepiece, with a new size and new power. The generous 46 mm case dimension highlight the famous black dial which is made with the “épargne” technique against a pure silver background.
On the dial are 3 sub-dials with the seconds indication at 9 o’clock, the 30-minute totalizer at 3 o’clock, and the 12-hour totalizer at 6 o’clock. Equipped with a circular slide rule, the Breitling Replica Navitimer 01 is purpose-built to handle all calculations associated to airborne navigation. Resistant to 3 bars, the steel or 18-carat red gold case of the Breitling Navitimer 01 is fitted with a rotating bezel with circular slide rule.
The self-winding Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 movement, can be admired through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback and comes with a power reserve of over 70-hours. One of the world’s finest automatic chronograph movement, it is created completely in the Breitling Chronométrie workshops. Internationally recognized as the benchmark for precision and reliability, the COSC has officially chronometer-certified the Breitling Caliber 01 Replica Watches UK movement, meaning the chronograph is precise to 1/4th of a second.
The steel version of the Breitling Navitimer 01 can be fitted either with a steel bracelet or leather strap, with a further choice between Barenia leather or crocodile leather.
