Long synonymous with the Breitling Navitimer Replica Watches, the circular slide rule on a watch was conceived to help pilots do calculations on the wrist. And despite being distinct from the chronograph, the slide has always gone together with the complication on Breitling’s watches, first on the Chronomat and then on the Navitimer. Until now.
Another of the major new launches under the aegis of newly installed Breitling chief executive Georges Kern – who has big plans for the brand – the Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 takes two key features found on the original Breitling Replica Watches UK Navitimer – the “beads of rice” bezel and slide rule – while doing away with the chronograph. And it is also smaller than most Navitimers to date, measuring just 38mm in diameter.
Notably, while earlierBest Breitling Watches Navitimers featured freely rotating bezels, the Navitimer 1 has a ratcheted, bidirectional bezel, which makes operating the slide rule easier by lining up its hash marks against the dial.
It’s powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17, which is actually an ETA 2824 automatic.
Following the launch of the new BreitlingNavitimer 8 Replica Watchescollection, Breitling has now introduced the Navitimer Super 8, an outsized “destro” that takes inspiration from the ref. 637, a thigh-borne stopwatch used by bomber pilots during the Second World War.
The Breitling Replica Watches UK Navitimer Super 8, however, is time-only and not a stopwatch. But in a concession to its history it does have an inner bi-directional rotating bezel to measure elapsed time.
The Super 8 is available in two iterations: stainless steel with a black dial, and titanium paired with a green dial.
Like the rest of the Breitling Replica Watches Navitimer 8 collection, both watches feature luminous Arabic numerals and hands. It is by far the largest watch from Breitling this year, measuring 46mm, or 50mm if you include the notched bezel.
Breitling has revealed the latest version of a longtime pilot’s favorite, the Breitling Replica Watches Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44. At first glance, we can see that the changes here are subtle but contribute to a newer and more subdued look for this big 44mm watch. Most notably, Breitling has opted for a cool brushed finish for the stainless steel case while simplifying the dial treatment. As a result, we see Breitling depart from some of their previous design choices as well as the brand’s new approach to style and overall aesthetic – a sign of new and valuable leadership at the hands of Georges Kern.
Even with its 44mm case, I’ve always been attracted to the Chronomat and when I caught wind of the new models being revealed, I feared opening a press release filled with countless variations and color combinations plus different case materials blended into the mix. Thankfully, Cheap Breitling Replica kept things basic and for me, these are the most attractive color options I’ve ever seen for the Chronomat. Something never really sat well with me whenever coming across the the previous, highly-polished Chronomats and I think it had something to do with the way the watches aged. This brushed tool-ish approach to the new models is by far more fitting and I think both the “Blackeye grey” and “Blackeye blue” dials will manage to pull in buyers that might’ve been disappointed with the available options before.
If I had to complain about anything at this point, it would be the Breitling Replica Watches UK tachymeter scale. It’s minor, I know, but I can’t help but wonder why so many brands find it necessary when the feature is practically useless in the day-to-day of most wearers. Logging hours in your Piper J-3? At most, you’ll mess around with the chronograph function to time your holding patterns – not recommended, but that’s it.
Personally these new approaches to the Chronomat are enough to put the watch back on my radar and remedy the option paralysis I experience whenever sifting through Fake Breitling Watches catalog. The shinier and more eccentric variants are still available on Breitling’s site if that’s still your thing but personally, I’m happy to see the Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 in its simplified form. I’m willing to bet the Blackeye blue model will be especially popular and it should be exciting to get the watch hands-on.
