Breitling holds no punches with a slew of new surprise releases, giving enthusiasts some much needed breathing room after the release of the Navitimer 8 Collection with the Navitimer 1 Collection this morning. The 43mm and 46mm models were still a bit larger and more contemporary than I think a lot of enthusiasts might have expected. Fret not though, Breitling releases 4 more models to the Navitimer 1 Collection that channel some vintage aesthetics, and measure in at a more conservative size. The Breitling Navitimer 1 Chronograph 41 Replica Watches UK is not only smaller, and dare I say realistically sized, it comes in a little bit cheaper than its larger B01 counterpart.
I’m going to come straight out with it – the Cheap Breitling Replica Watches Navitimer 1 Chronograph 41 does a fantastic job of channeling the Navitimers of an older era and fit cleanly and fantastically into the new collection. Where its older brother gives the Navitimer a bit more modern appeal, this watch taps into a vintage vein that I feel will resonate with a more hardcore set of Nav-Heads.
The single toned dial with just the texture to separate the sub-dials takes me back to the earliest releases of the Navitimer with the size to match. I’m a little disappointed in the 6/9/12 register layout instead of the traditional 3/6/9 of its great grandfather, but I can’t fault Breitling Replica Watches too much, as I suppose the watches need to have their own DNA – you know, with the re-work of the collection and all.
I think these will definitely appeal to fans of the Navitimer that don’t want to strap a shiny UFO on their wrists.
