The Breitling Navitimer Replica Watch is in my opinion the most attractive watch of its kind on the market. It’s timeless design. 43mm or 46mm would be the sizes I would consider the most practical.
“Breitling replica has been releasing smaller watches for men as small as 38 mm….” Well there are always women who believe that size does matter; I guess it’s good to know that some of them are so precise about it…
One of the most exciting things about in house movements is the new liberty that the manufactures then have in designing the dials, breaking the shackles imposed by ETA. So it’s quite disappointing such a missed opportunity at Bretling Replica Watches‘ foray in its own caliber. While the likes of Frederique Constant and Nomos leverage their own movements to hone their design, Bretling stuck to the tired Valjoux layout. At least Breitling used a proper date wheel for the window at 4:30.
Well I heartily agree with redundancy in dive & flight situations. And other occasions where ones, or others, lives may depend on some type of redundancy system. Perhaps I was a bit too abstract in my comment.
What meant was, the Navitimer replica watch has become the flight tool version of the “desk diver.”
I will say that I think the layout has classic status and I do admire it; but it is much too “busy” for my personal tastes. Of course, it does have legions of fans and, as mentioned, has inspired countless more in reps and homages.
So, as far as its classic look status – granted.
As to its actual use – perhaps a very small part of its demographic.
As to this 48mm sundial apparition – well, I suppose Dolly Parton has her admirers who don’t even know she sings.
