Breitling appended the message “real men wear black” to end of their new for 2014 Chronospace Military watch promotional video. In the video, we have a typical Breilting-style scene, where military aviation dudes are getting ready for flight in the locker room and strapping on their Breitling Chronospace Military Replica watches. It is typical Breitling campy fun because the video takes itself a bit more seriously than it expects the viewer to. The focus on black seems to relate to the PVD black-coated steel case and available black straps for the watch. The Breitling Chronospace Military that I got to check out came on a nice green khaki strap with “vintage-style” lume on the dial.
Let’s be clear that while this is a new Breitling watch, it is more a stylistic diversion than something entirely fresh. If there is anything you can glean from the new products that Cheap Breitling Replica introduced in 2014, it was that the company is attempting to fashionably diversify their collection. What does that mean? Essentially, more colors and sizes for the watches they already offer. For those looking for just the right fit when it comes to a new Breitling will have more options than ever.
If you already have one Cheap Breitling, there probably isn’t going to be too much about the Breliting Chronospace Military watch that inspires you to add this model to your collection, unless you deeply love the colors and design. I say this also in light of the fact that Breitling also recently announced a new exclusive quartz movement that they will soon release, which adds some flavor to their current offerings of Swiss ETA produced quartz movements. I am, of course, referring to the B50 movement which will be first found in the Breitling Replica Watches that aBlogtoWatch debuted here. The B50 movement offers some interesting features and allows the user to recharge it regularly using a charging dock. Inside the Breitling Chronospace Military is Breitling caliber 78 SuperQuartz movement, which out to last a couple of years between battery changes.
If you aren’t familiar with how these high-end analog/digital SuperQuartz movements work, it is simple. First of all, note that Breitling offers a few different quartz movements – such as some with just the crown and others with pushers as well. The main time is displayed using the analog hands, but deeper functionality is available via the two LCD screens. Functions include things such as a 1/100th of a second chronograph, countdown timer, alarm, dual time zones, full calendar, and some additional functions “useful to pilots.” What is more important is the thermo-compensation element to the movement which greatly enhances accuracy over standard quartz movements. For this reason, Breitling Replica is able to get its SuperQuartz movements COSC Chronometer certified.
It is possible that additional color versions of the Breliting Chronospace Military will be available. That means white versus aged-style lume, as well as other possible variations. For now, the standard black with cream lume case comes with various strap options, including this green fabric strap, as well as a black fabric strap. You could also put the Cheap Breitling Replica on a bracelet – though only if you like the Milanese-style bracelet in black. Also note the cool looking caseback of the watch.
From a durability perspective, this is a pilot’s watch, not a diver. So you’ll have to deal with the 50 meters of water resistance, which is about standard for most of Breitling’s ana-digi SuperQuartz timepieces. Over the dial, of course, is an AR-coated sapphire crystal. Good looking and useful, the Breitling Replica is a fine addition to their larger collection which very much fits the theme of the brand, as well as the type of persona Breitling has currently been pushing.
