Following the launch of the new Navitimer 8 collection, Breitling Replica Watches 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.
This little known military watch was designed by the Huit Aviation, Breitling Replica’s aviation instrument department, and made oversized for optimal readability and ease of use. It was worn on the thighs so the stopwatch could be read by glancing down with hands on the controls. The had a large, notched bezel and a pronounced crown located on the left side of the case for easy operation, even with gloved fingers.
The Cheap Replica Watches 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 Swiss Watches is available in two iterations: stainless steel with a black dial, and titanium paired with a green dial.
Like the rest of the Navitimer 8 collection, both watches feature luminous Arabic numerals and hands. It is by far the largest watch from Best Breitling Replica this year, measuring 46mm, or 50mm if you include the notched bezel.
Powering the Super 8 is the Breitling Replica Watches, which is based on Tudor’s MT5612, a COSC-certified movement presently used in the Tudor Pelagoes and Black Bay. It features a variable inertia balance wheel and a 70-hour power reserve.
Yesterday we introduced a new Breitling Chronograph Replica from the company’s just-launched Navitimer 8 line. We told you that there would be some additional models coming to the Navitimer 8, and today we can confirm that there are a handful of new pieces that have been formally announced, including a basic automatic, a worldtimer, and the watch we have here. This is an attractive, 41mm Best Breitling Replica for aviators that features displays for the day and the date, making it a practical everyday choice.
Why This Watch Matters
When Georges Kern left his perch at Richmont last summer to take over Breitling, most industry observers viewed the move as a chance for the industry veteran to turn Breitling around. As we can see from this first collection – which includes an in-house chronograph, a Valjoux-based chronograph, a time-only variant, a Unitime, as well as this watch with day and date – Kern’s first line of Breitlings come with distinctive vintage looks and a name, Breitling Navitimer 8 Replica Watches, that connects back to the company’s historical eight-day cockpit instruments. Interestingly, what this newly launched collection does not include is the E6B circular slide rule – used by pilots to calculate fuel consumption, among other things – that most watch lovers immediately think of when they hear the name Navitimer.
Now that we’ve had a chance to look at this new collection from Breitling, we can see that the influence of Georges Kern has made itself felt, and fairly swiftly, in the Cheap Breitling Replica product lineup. The fact that we see a coherent collection with design cues that carry over from watch to watch will be familiar to anyone who knows Kern’s work at IWC, where he and his team focused on one line at a time and refreshed it from top to bottom on a rolling basis.
